I did a system file check on my pc and it said "Windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them".It gave a path to go to the log listing the files but when I try to go there it says "access is denied".I would to show the cmd windows but I can't figure out how

Sometimes sfc /scannow needs to be run two or three times to completely resolve some problems.  Please try rebooting and try this again.

 

Why did you run the sfc /scannow?

I have run it 8 times and still have the same thing and still access is denied.Maybe this is something I'll have to live with but I don't like the idea of having corrupt files and not being able to do anything about them

Obviously sfc /scannow isn't going to go any further.

 

Try this:

 

In order to run the Repair installation for Windows 7 you will need an installation disc.
 
If you do not have a Windows 7 installation disc you can download a ISO image at the Windows 7 Forums.  These ISO images are legal to download.  These images were hosted at the Digital River store which is an official distribution partner of Microsoft.  The images are untouched and genuine, the images are absolutely safe to download.  
 
***If you do have the Windows installation disc go to step 1. in the Windows 7 repair installation below.
 
You will need to burn the ISO image will need to be burned to a DVD, in order to do this I would suggest ImgBurn.
 
1)  To burn a ISO file to a DVD please downlaod ImgBurn and install it.
 
2)  Insert blank DVD into your CD/DVD drive.
 
3)  Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc.

4)  Click on the Browse for a file icon:
 
ImgBurn2_zpsaea72ba9.png
 
5)  Locate the ISO file you want to burn, and click on the Open button.
 
6)  Click on the blue arrow to start burning the bootable DVD.
 
imageburn11_zpse44f577b.png
 
In order to boot from the this DVD you may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the CD/DVD-ROM is the first device and the hdd the second device.
 
***Windows 7 repair installation steps.
 
1.  Place the installation disc in the tray of the optical drive and restart the computer.
 
2.  You will be prompted to press any key to start the installation, I find the space bar handy.
 
At this point the setup process will load files, this will take a couple of minutes.
 
3.  You will now need to choose  Language to install, Time and currency format, and Keyboard or input method that you'd like to use.
 
w71_zps6dbda47e.png
 
4.  Click on the Repair the computer link on the bottom-left of the Install Windows window.
 
This link will begin the Windows 7 System Recovery Options.
 
w72_zps45da5ec8.png
 
5.  System Recovery Options will now search your hard drive(s) for any Windows 7 installations.  This will take a few minutes.
 
No participation is required on your part, wait till it has finished and the next window will open.
 
w73_zpsd5483f05.png
 
6.  Choose the Windows 7 installation that you'd like to perform the Startup Repair on, then clinck on Next
 
w74_zps490f9a17.png
 
7.  Click on the Startup Repair link from list of recovery tools in System Recovery Options.
 
w75_zps9941e858.png
 
Several other diagnostic and recovery tools are available in the Windows 7 System Recovery Options including System Restore, System Image Recovery, Windows Memory Diagnostic, and Command Prompt.
 
8.  The Startup Repair tool will now search for problems in the system files.
 
If Startup Repair finds a problem with any system files the tool may suggest a solution of some kind that you need to confirm, or may solve the problem automatically.
 
w76_zps3dd75d83.png
 
9.  Startup Repair will now attempt to repair whatever problems it found with system files.  
 
Note:  If Startup Repair did not find any problems with system files you won't see this step.
 
w77_zpsd8be95eb.png
 
Important: Your computer may or may not restart several times during this repair process.  This is normal, you should allow it to continue until you see the Restart your computer to complete the repairs window. 
 
10.  Click on Finish, this will restart your computer.
 
w78_zpsd49257fb.png
 
It is possible that the Startup Repair will not be able to fix the problem.  If the Starup Repair tool determines this it may automatcially run the the repair after your computer restarts.  If it does not automatically run the repair but you're still having problems with Windows 7 repeat these steps to run Startup Repair again manually.

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

For some reason I can't set this dell pc to boot from cd or dvd.I'm gonna order an external hdd to back up everything before trying to manually start the win 7 disk because it starts loading temp files and I don't want to loose everything.That might be normal for repair but I'm not taking any chances.

Are you trying to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the CD/DVD-ROM is the first device and the hdd the second device?

That would best to backup your data.

 

Set the boot sequence in the BIOS to CD/DVD first and save changes    '

 

Although Dells computers  have a partition that has a repair feature

You have posted that you are familiar with changing the boot sequence, but I will ask my question just to be sure.

 

After you have changed the boot order are you pressing F10 to save the settings and then exiting?

 

What happens when you try to change the boot order?

There is no way to change the boot order in the bios,it list the hdd and the cd/dvd but does not allow the boot order to be selected.

The is in the speccy report?I figured out how to change the boot order but it goes to press any key and then to chose os and then it continues to load windows normally.I bought this pc in 2010 and it came with the recovery partition so maybe its time to re-install from a regular win7 cd so I'll order the external hard drive and start all over.I have been very careful about keeping this one clean,I'm about the only one that uses it,but I guess time dictates.Do I have to use a cloning program or can I just pick out the the things I want to save.I have never had any luck backing up things,I guess because I'm not real sure how to do that.Oh and this pc does have a repair partition,maybe I should try that before I do any thing drastic.At any rate I need the other hard drive before doing anything.Thanks for your help and time,I appreciate it.
