System Restore and Sys File Integrity Check Errors

» Vista will not boot up. Tried system restore and start up repair. Got following error messages: Sys restore-0x490, Sys file integrity check and repair-0x2. Laptop works in safe mode and when I finally do get it to boot up normally after safe mode it locks up after three minutes. Is there a microsoft vista detect and repair program I can run on this?

» System Restore helps you restore your computer's system files to an earlier point in time. It's a way to undo system changes to your computer without affecting your personal files, such as e mail, documents, or photos. Sometimes, the installation of a program or a driver can cause an unexpected change to your computer or cause Windows to behave unpredictably. Usually, uninstalling the program or driver corrects the problem. If uninstalling does not fix the problem, you can try restoring your computer's system to an earlier date when everything worked correctly.

System Restore uses a feature called System Protection to regularly create and save restore points on your computer. These restore points contain information about registry settings and other system information that Windows uses. You can also create restore points manually.

System Restore is not intended for backing up personal files, so it cannot help you recover a personal file that has been deleted or damaged. You should regularly back up your personal files and important data using a backup program.

In case that the system restore fails to work when your system is infected by the viruses like TrojanSpy:Win32/Agent.CQ, you can rely on the DLL Suite which is a professional dll file error repair including sys file error, it will provide you with blue screen fix.

Download DLL Suite, install and run > Click Dashboard menu and > Click Scan DLL Errors button > Click Fix DLL Errors button after the scan. And all the sys file errors including the blue screen will be repaired automatically.

    It is strange that you are not able to find the System Configuration utility when trying to you type ‘msconfig' in the search field. It does not make any difference if you have Vista professional. This is available in all the versions of Windows.

    You should verify if you can launch this from the location.

    1. Open ‘Computer and browse to the location: C:\Windows\System32.

    2. Look for the file msconfig and try to open.

When it came back online I got these two error codes. The only thing is I can't make it past the Startup Repair screen into windows to try running MSCONFIG from Command Prompt. I tried running it within the Startup Repair -> Advanced options environment but it said I needed to run in as Administrator... which I was.

  4. DAVID BROOKS replied on February 17, 2013: » I had the same problem - couldn't get past repair. Dell startup has an option (Ctrl-I) to select startup options. From there I was able to boot to Windows with a command prompt. Msconfig is available from there. The restore volume that Repair gives you doesn't have msconfig; you need to make it as far as Windows somehow. Also, since my first restore point option couldn't get past repair, once I got to Windows, I was able to select a Restore Point earlier than the one I originally tried. Not all my problems are there, but now I can at least attack them

I kept getting the BSOD(blue screen of death) after the computer had been running for a half hour or so. What I ended up doing was updating windows7 with all the recommended and optional updates. Then I made sure I had all the updated drivers to my MotherBoard, i.e. chipset, storage controllers, BIOS, etc. So far so good. I have not had the BSOD or the error since I updated everything. I don't know if it will work for everyone, but it's worth a try if nothing else is working.
