    Corrupt files in System File Checker - now what? Hello,

    In trying to fix a still unsolved problem with my WLAN network connection (detailed here, if relevant: WLAN issue - WiFi can't connect - Tech Support Guy Forums), it was concluded that a main problem is corrupt files identified by the System Files checker.

    This is the message I get when running the checker tool: “…found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them”. Checking the log, I searched for “cannot repair” but nothing comes up. Searching for “cannot” in the logs turns up some cases of “cannot verify component files for Microsoft-Windows-Security-Kerberos…”. Search for “corrupt” turns up nothing. Not sure what to do now. My computer is a Dell XPS 15 Z running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

    Anyone have any suggestions? Many thanks!

    Go to the command prompt, right click and run as admin. Copy this command and past it in the CMD and hit enter.

    A file will appear on the desktop. Please compress and upload that file.

    According to the log to two problems found were repaired. As for your WLAN, I'm not sure if its related or not. I'll look into you posted link.
