Hi, trying to run windows update

I get a message saying: Windows cannot install important files while the system is using them, please restart your computer.


However restarting the computer does not help. Tried to run sfc scan, here is the message received:

There is a system repair pending which requires a reboot to complete. Restart windows and try sfc again.


However no mater how many times i restart it stays the same


Any idea what can be done to resolve thsi issue?

You have an active topic in the Am I Infected forum which Broni posted a reply this morning.  


You need to stick with this topic until this issue is resolved to the extent of what can be done in that forum.


I would suggest that you not respond to any suggestions in this topic.  This can only add confusion and make Broni's job more difficult.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

FTR, the open topic in Aii is here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/507690/vista-unable-to-activate-firewallblocks-all-downloads-even-from-microsofthelp/
Please finish with that topic before proceeding here. To avoid confusion I'm closing this topic.
If and when you are finished with the above linked topic, please feel free to PM me or any Moderator to have this topic re-opened. Also please include a link to this topic with your PM.
