I was having trouble with my windows 7 not shutting down, I attempted a system restore to several restore points but they all failed. I started up in safe mode and tried a system restore there, it failed also now the computer will not boot, I am getting a 0xc0000221 error saying file \windows\system32\drivers\ksecpkg.sys is missing or corrupt.

Please help

I tried starting up with my windows disk and choosing repair but that did not help either, I have googled the issue and found no good solutions.

OK I tried  starting up with the windows cd again for the 6th time and it seems to have fixed my problems.


I can now boot the computer but it takes about 3 minutes for windows to load so some thing is still wrong, I working on it.

Hi. . .


Error code 0xc0000221 = STATUS_IMAGE_CHECKSUM_MISMATCH - a Windows file is corrupted.


Try running sfc /scannow from a CMD screen.


Use AutoRuns (Logon tab) to look for unneeded start-up apps that can be disabled to help speed up the 3 minute boot time -
