Hey all, 

 

Recently I've been cleaning up my PC (64-bit Windows 7, HP Pavilion dv6, AMD processor), and, thanks in part to reading these forums, managed to remove malware that was preventing Windows Firewall from starting and sfc /scannow from running all the way through. However, after running sfc /scannow I got a message saying "windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some". I've already run chkdsk. Could you help me determine if I need to take action to repair these files or just let it go for now? My system is running fine at the moment (to my knowledge). 

 

Here are, from what I can tell, the three files in question from the log: 

 

Cannot repair member file [l:24{12}]"WmiPrvSE.exe" of Microsoft-Windows-WMI-Core-ProviderHost

Cannot repair member file [l:36{18}]"Amd64\BRCI06UI.DLL" of prnbr002.inf

Cannot repair member file [l:36{18}]"Amd64\EP0LVR1V.DLL" of prnep00l.inf

 

The full log is here since it exceeds the upload limit:

Thanks for what you guys do.

The last two listed appear to be Brother printer drivers...the WMI Core is a basic part of Windows.

 

If the files are damaged...the typical thing to do is to remove them and replace them undamaged copies.

 

I would try uninstalling the printer drives...then reinstalling same.  They may be creating the problem with WMI.

 

If files are damaged...what's the point of allowing them to remain in the system, causing problems?

Thanks, I don't believe I have any Brother printers installed but I will see if I can find out how to reinstall the appropriate files.

The Brother drivers apparently come installed with Windows. I was able to obtain working copies of the .dll's from a friends laptop running an identical OS, but still get the same error. However, I don't really agree with the advice that I've gotten on some sites to completely reinstall windows, as this seems unnecessary given that no problems are visible and all of my data is backed up in case something serious somehow materializes from this minor error.

Firstly I would suggest that you uninstall the drivers from the device manager, please follow the steps below:

Click on start > type in devmgmt.msc in search box, hit enter> right click on the printer drivers from the list of devices and click on uninstall. And restart the computer.

You can reinstall appropriate drivers from manufacturers website if so desired.

Good Luck

The problem is that the drivers are not from printers that I've installed and are not listed on device manager list. They appear to be installed with the Windows OS, as the dll's were also on my friend's computer.
