Can't install CheckSUR (System Update Readiness Tool) --- (log+screencast)


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,
I'm having stubborn corruption issues on my Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. I have tried hard to solve this for almost 2 weeks now, without success..
I'm a bit surprised/offended to find myself being forced to resort to specialized forums like this one to fix my problem because I usually always find a way of my own. But this time I will need you guys.
My problem is very similar to zac1 on this thread, whom receive great help from Rkinner: Windows 7 will not update - Geeks to Go Forums
I'm fairly good at digging into Windows OS so I'll be able to follow your instruction very easily, without having you to be extremely detailed and to describe any common IT terms.
- Corrupt system files which leads to problem installing/uninstalling applications, windows update, ssd firmware, basically anything that require deeper system's integration.
- sfc scan find corrupt files but can't fix them all.
Troubleshoot done so far
- Scanned for presence of any malwares/virus/rootkit.  Result --> none
- Uninstalled/Reinstalled corrupt applications         Result --> Sucess, but had to uninstall the dirty way (Revo uninstaller and manual registry left-over removal)
- Installed all missing .NET Framework & Visual C++ Redistributables 
- Registry scan/clean (CCleaner, Little Registry Cleaner, and such)   Result --> Many problem found/fixed, without real improvement.
- sfc scan (sfc /scannow)
- checkdisk scan (chkdsk /f /v /r /x /b)
- Reset system's default permission using Tweaking.com's tools (and some manual manipulation)
Generated logs:    *list of all generated log files (*all done with elevated administrator privilege:
- sfc scan       ---> https://www.dropbox.com/s/h24h371z1ynjgxv/sfc%20scan%20log.txt    (or see attached file)
- chkdsk scan    ---> https://www.dropbox.com/s/7e45yw9e7j9dpgw/chkdsk.txt (or see attached file)
- OTL scan       ---> can't complete a scan because of infinite loop on the AppData directory ---> http://screencast.com/t/C83Rut1Bnqgt
- CheckSUR ---> can't install the System Update Readiness Tool either but was able to get some log: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ld02wwmlv1b8k7n/CbsPersist_20140313224512.cab (file is too big to attach)
- SFCFix by niemiro --> https://www.dropbox.com/s/3xtnphhfszt7x5u/SFCFix.txt (or see attached file)
I would at least like to be able to install CheckSUR ...
Here's what happen when I try to install that it --> 2014-03-14_1304
As you can see I can extract the content of the installer... is there something I can do with those extracted file ? I tried but its a mess of multiple cab files...
Also, I just cleared my event viewer log to do a fresh monitoring of that CheckSUR install.
here's what I got: ---> 2014-03-14_1328

Checksur install eventlog.txt

going through your logs:


  1. SFCFix obviously found nothing.
  2. SFC found errors, but in the most odd places:
    desktop.ini * 80 in Multiple locations, namely themes
    MSDTC.LOG * 8
  3. chkdsk log shows cleaning up of 456 unused index entries from 2 locations, plus the sane number of security descriptors.
  4. CheckSUR log shows and error code 0x80070643 which according to Micro$oft is a .NET installation error:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976982


Your error logs and your description seem t o point to the same place, at least initially - something isn't right with one (or more) of your .NET frameworks.


I have 2 different .NET verifier tools that I have used to check, let me find official download links for you to get a hold of them.

Here is another tool that detects which version you ahve installed, and optionally allows you to download updates and related SDKs.




Here is the sample output from this tool:

<32Bit>2.0.50727.5477  ->C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.507274.0.30319.18444  ->C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319<64Bit>2.0.50727.5477  ->C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.507274.0.30319.18444  ->C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319< Installed .NET Frameworks >.NET FW 2.0 SP 2.NET FW 3.0 SP 2.NET FW 3.5 SP 1.NET FW 4.5.NET FW 4.5.1

Hello malrmk:   :welcome:


As some of your system's troubles seem random, have you considered checking the S.M.A.R.T. values for all your storage devices?




Also, do you think a thorough check of your system's temperature sensors and fans is worthwhile? Some folks record sensor readings (with & without stress), when all is well, and store them for later comparisons.




Do you believe an overnight check with memtest86+ might identify or rule out RAM issues?




Do your system's event logs have any recent interesting/related entries?


Have you recently suspected any A.C. power delivery events to your system and/or components?


HTH :)
