Windows 7 Repair, system files, failed, error code = 0x490


  • Everytime my system attempts a Windows Update, it fails upon reboot.

    Then Repair utility is run during reboot, and it sends an error message back to MS and generates a report that lists several startup environment checks that are 0x0 passed, until the final one a system file check, which fails with a code 0x490.

    So sfc /scannow is run and "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.".

    Two questions:

    Is there a way of finding out what files were, I'm assuming, replaced by the Repair Utility?

    If sfc find files that are corrupt and can't replace them, how can a list of those corrupt files be found and how can the files be replaced manually?
