    There is a space between the c & the /---

    sfc /scannow

    Try this batch file as administrator if possible---

    dism.bat

    I've done it without spaces just fine.

    Tweaking.com's Windows Repair (All in One) just might be able to help. Run defaults and add #s 26 &27; can be run in Safe Mode w/Network Support or in regular mode with all security programs temporarily turned off. Best run by itself without anything else running forefront.

    Thanks Dencal...... I've followed the link - not sure what to do with that really, a bit beyond my expertise! What I think I'm going to try is replace the SSD with the OS on and see if I can get it working. Hopefully all the important stuff will still be okay on the E drive. Thanks again for all your help.

    i don't see how I can use this because I'm unable to start up Windows, even Safe mode won't work. Unless I'm missing something.....?
