  • Hi

    Use the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to determine which file is causing the issue, and then replace the file. To do this, follow these steps:

    Type the following command, and then press ENTER:

     sfc /scannow

    Attention you must have administrative privilege, and also need windows CD.

    As it is a Windows 7 related question, it is recommanded to post on Windows 7 forum instead:

    redm, did you always have the Apostrophe after .exe'?

    Double check to make sure your command doesn't include this single apostrophe character... this will cause an error to be thrown. Just run, "cleanmgr" as a single command. If issue persists, please continue to use System File Checker as directed by the other gentleman/ladies.
