    Hello:
    I am running Windows 7. While doing my checks for malware, antivirus and Windows repair, I use a software
    called Tweaking.com Windows Repair. When you open this programme it checks to see if any files are missing or corrupt. When it finds a file that is missing or corrupt it will not run.
    I opened and ran this software the other day and it found a missing or corrupt file. The missing file is this: Files\policy_cleanup.txt.
    So I ran command prompt, sfc scannow. Well, after the scan it found missing file but could not fix it. I also did this in safe mode and the results were that repairs are pending restart computer.
    None of this worked.
    How do I replace/reinstall this file. I did copy or paste Sysinfo utility to this thread because my PC notified me that it could harm my computer.
    Thanks

    Hello plodr:
    Thank you for help. I checked the link you sent and that file was there. What I did was do uninstall/reinstall with Tweaking.com and that did the job. Sure saved a lot of frustration. Have a nice weekend.

    It should be mentioned that although "Kutcorners" may not return to see this reply,he/she mentioned that their computer flagged "Sysinfo Utility" as harmful, it is in fact a "false positive".
