    My windows has corrupted files that it cannot repair. Windows boots regularly, but safe mode doesn't work (Black screen, no explorer, cant start explorer directly (can be started via a path), task manager still works, all apps work.) SFC reports different errors depending on the context in which it is running:

    Under "Repair Computer (F8): "A repair is scheduled for next reboot, restart and try again" (which never works)

    Under Installation CD: "A repair is scheduled for next reboot, restart and try again" (which never works)

    In Windows (Normal): "Windows Resource Protection can not perform the operation"

    In Windows (Safe Mode): "Could not start the protection service" (something along those lines)

    Here is an SFC log:

    Any Clues? :D

    It's about 6 months old, and it doesn't seem like it's failing. It passes all of it's SMART tests. I really rather not reformat, because I have a lot of stuff to back up.
    I am using Windows Loader (By Daz) 1.9.6. I cannot launch 2.0.3, for it launches in the task manager, but the GUI never shows up.

    I'm such a moron. I've spent 5 months zero-filling with surely every utility on the Internet, then reinstalling Genuine Advantage Windows or Canonical distributions only to get corrupted silent unattended images installed instead - every time. 9 systems. 5 months.

    I've finally clicked onto the above, and throwing my Genuine Advantage discs out - but heck if I can manage a non-corrupted iso download.

    May I ask which one you used?

    You need to reevaluate your source files and start over. I've only had this described problem with fubar files. Try using another resource and/or another machine to prepare the install media.

    not to forget but test ram .. if ram is going bad it will say file not found due to a character being different
    like.. EXLLORER.EXE would not work cause its supposed to be EXPLORER.EXE
    seen this many times.

    I would second that.

    It may would also be a good idea for the take out the Ram Module and use an Pencil Rubber for to clean the connector feets. It's often that just Airmoistures or simple wet dust forced the Ram Modules for to produce errors.
