    Dear Friends, hope all is well.
    When I ran my last sfc /scannow on my Windows Vista Business SPK 2 machine I get these errors that the corrupted file could not be fixed.
    I assume these files could be replaced with good ones? The machine doesn't have any obvious problems.
    I have Run the standard chkdsk /c: and it ran OK. I assume due to that it would not yield any postive results to run a chkdsk /f or /r?

    Would a "Skip the Autochk process" from F8>Advanced options>Skip the Autochk process select Last known good configuration to bypass the scheduled Chkdsk operation (Autochk) and allow you to return to the system. Be a good idea? Not sure of the risks?

    What do I know?
    Here's the CBS logs in part FYI. Hope you can help or should not be overly concerned?

    Thank YOU!
    Love the signature...
    This all sounds right. This HotFix http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975778. This updates installs an updated autochk.exe. doesn't apply to the computer I'm having this issue with. Do you have another link or Hotfix for my machine? Which is Windows Vista Business Copyright 2007 Micorsoft Service Pack 2 32 Bit OS.

    Have you tried a System Restore Point prior to the date/time this started?

    Thank YOU! I have not done a System Restore. This computer was purchased as a gift and it came with service pack 1. The rest was done with Windows updates.
    (See attachments System Restore points).
    I'm not certain which Restore point I should go back to at this time? I'm not sure if this would help resolve this problem? And I certainly don't need or want to make matters worst...
    Your further thoughts/suggestions appreciated...

    As you're not seeing any performance issues I don't think you have anything to worry about. The SFC might be making a mistake. Best thing to do is to run a search for the file and then I can check the hash numbers.

    Please download SystemLook from the following link below and save it to your Desktop.



    • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
    • Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
    • Copy and paste everything in the codebox below into the main textfield:
      Code:
      :filefind
      [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]autochk.exe[/FONT]
      
    • Click the Look button to start the scan.
    • When finished, a Notepad window will open SystemLook.txt with the results of the search and save a copy on your Desktop.
    • Please copy and paste the contents of that log in your next reply.

    Hi Dino7 and welcome back. There is no hash mismatch with the file in your system when compared to the one in the store.

    Before we consider making any changes to the file I'd like you to check and see if you can run a disc check so we can see if autochk.exe is really corrupt, or not. If the disc check runs ok I think we can safely say it is alright.

    Please follow these instructions and let it run to completion, then follow the instructions to post the log.


    Disk Check

    • Click on Start then type cmd in the search box. A menu will pop up with cmd at the top, right click on it and select Run as Administrator. Another box will open, at the prompt type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. Note: you must include a space between the k and the /
    • You will then see the following message:
      chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)
    • Type Y for yes, and hit Enter. Then reboot the computer.
    • chkdsk will start when Windows begins loading again. Let all 5 phases run and don't use or turn off the computer. (The chkdsk process may take an hour or more to finish, if it appears to freeze this is normal so do not interrupt it. On drives above 500GB it can take several hours.)
    • When the Disk Check is done, it will finish loading Windows.


    When back at the desktop, follow this to find the log.


    • Press the Windows + R keys to open the Run box, type eventvwr.msc, and hit the Enter key on your keyboard.
    • If prompted by the User Account Control, click on Yes (Windows 7/8) or Continue (Vista).
    • In the left pane of Event Viewer, double click on Windows Logs to expand it, then left click once on Application then right click on Application and select Find.
    • Type wininit into the Find box and click on Find Next.
    • When the search completes you should see the log displayed in the central pane, close the Find window.
    • In the right hand pane click on Copy and select Copy details as text.
    • Come back to this thread and right click in the message box and select Paste, the log should appear.
    • Add any other information asked for and submit the post.

    Question? Am I supposed to see anything on the desktop after rebooting >running chkdsk /r? I see the hard drive light flickering, but otherwise the desktop look normal. When I've run chkdsk at other times w/o an /r. I usually see the cmd box running through the phases.

    As long as you followed the instructions correctly and typed in Y when asked if you wanted to run the check the next time the system starts, then there is a problem with autochk.exe, it should have run on start up before you reached the desktop on a black screen with white text.

    Please just confirm that and try it again to be sure.
