    System File Checker stops at 51 percent.


    I have a Acer Laptop with windows 8 64 bit and have had Usb issues with some devices. I tried running SFC and it stops at the same place each time saying it cant continue. The log file list files that have been verified but no errors

    Any ideas?

    I was trying to avoid doing a repair because it said i would lose all the installed programs. If i was going that far i think i would put xp64 or vista 64 on it

    EDIT--This is not true.Even though it says it won't affect your programs, it does.I tried it today & lost a bunch of downloaded programs.Microsoft needs to change the wording.

    you meant "Refresh" instead of "Repair", correct?

    Yes, but after reading other posts it seems the "refresh" will remove some installed programs.

    EDIT--- I edited my previous post.Microsoft got it wrong...I lost programs,which was a pain in the neck.

    I was thinking of the old repair install of XP.
    It bugs me when I mess up information.
    I apologize.
    But,there is something you could try before a refresh.

    Open an Administrator Command Prompt & type in:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    at the blinking cursor & press Enter.

    It takes a while to finish.

    Then run sfc /scannow.



    Post back your results.

    I tried this myself & it fixed things sfc /scannow could not fix.

    That's very interesting Medab1 - what exactly does that command prompt do?

    I'm not a computer expert.
    All I know is that it will fix problems sfc /scannow cannot.

    I made sure to test it on my computer before suggesting it to others.
