  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for the post!

     

    I recommend you use System File Checker to troubleshoot the issue.

     

    1. Insert the Windows 7 installation DVD into the DVD-ROM; Click Exit if the auto-menu pops up.

    2. Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

     

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow. 

     

    3.  At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

     

    sfc /scannow

     

     

    For details about SFC, you can refer to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833/en.

     

    Hope it works.

     

    Best Regards,
