You may need to run sfc /SCANNOW 3 or 4 times in order to repair all possible corruption.
Failing that, you can try downloading and running the Sysnative tool SFCFix, which can often fix issues that sfc cannot.

Reboot and repeatedly tap F8 for the listing of commands; select System Restore and pick a restore date immediately before this problem started. Or...in safe mode, click the Start button (lower left in desktop screen) and in the search box type System Restore. If F8 is not the correct F-key to use, it should be listed in the manual that came with your computer.
It's been a long time since I used Vista, but there is a system restore option in there somewhere.
By the way....I do not mean an image reinstallation of the entire operating system from a restore partition; in that case you will lose all programs and data. A system restore only reinstalls critical system files from a library on the hard drive in case of corrupted files. Your data and programs are not overwritten.
