    I am glad that at least you can retrieve your personal data. As said earlier, since your Windows System Files are badly corrupted, you might consider to do a refresh and you would have to re-install all third party softwares.

    I would suggest once you have Windows back working then use: Macrium Reflect Free to make a complete backup just in case something like happens in the future.

    well yeah im happy to have my files whitout any damage.
    but one more thing...i was messing up whit check disk and sfc and event viewer a bit i saw somewhere about broken pagefile or something.
    is there a way to recreate a drives pagefile?
    i had a consider to reinstall my windows. cuz so many cool things i want but as im 32 Bit i cant use them (ex. watchdogs - adobe after effect...)
    now that this happened it really came that i need to do it.

    Win+X->System->Advanced system settings->Advanced->performance->Settings->Advanced->Virtual Memory then click on Change then click on: no paging file. Windows will ask you to restart for the change to take effect. This will effectively removes the pagefile.sys

    After Windows restarted. Go back and set the paging file again to re-create a new pagefile.sys

    well i was doing a lot of things these days and i got to it Changing The Windows is the best solution for it.
    because its the windows problem as you can browse your files easily whit an other bootable live OS so i think the best solution i gathered till here :
    1.Get a bootable live OS(linux or windows)(want a small linux?Check out here> DSL information <)
    2.Transfer the data of your messed up drive whit the bootable live OS(some DVD or USB or even one of your other drives)
    3.Reinstall the windows(and format that drive while installing)

    and your done!

    Special Thanks to "topgundcp" and "Mark Phelps"
