        • Maximilian says:

          We recommend to run Startup Repair two or three times. If the problem remains it is obvious that it cannot be solved with this tool. It is possible that you have a missing or corrupt file.

    Hi, many mention Windows 7 when telling of this feature.

    If being more specific, in which versions of Windows 7 can we expect this to be included on the harddisk?

    • Ciprian says:

      It is not version specific. You should have these tools on all, as all need a way to recover/repair your system.

    After I was inform by MS that my computer was infected, they advised to use start up repair.I follow all the procedures, I was ask to download the program and make a copy of start up and rebut my com7puter using the copy of start up. since I used start up I was not able to rebut my computer. Start up repair can not repair my computer automatically, Do any one can help me; what I can do to rebut my computer. I use Window 7.

    I have two computers with Windows 7 Home Premium. On both of them, when I go to “Recovery” and “System Restore” through Control Panel, I do NOT get the “System Recovery Options” dialogue box which is the first screen capture of this article. I can find no way to access something called “startup repair” on either computer.

    Hello, What if system restore doesn’t work? The diagnosis and repair details states there is 1 root cause but it cannot be found. I have done a restore back to the earliest available date to no prevail. I have done a memory diagnostics test but end up with the same start up repair message.

    • Don says:

      I have the same problem. Startup repair is useless except for the simplest problems. System Restore does not work regardless of date selected.

      Tools are useless. Must do clean install and then re-install every freaking program.

      Insult to injury, Microsoft Office counts the re-install as one of the licences. FML! and FMS!

  8. Hugo Rasmussen says:

    What to do when you have stopped repairing at ‘Don’t send’ – reboot to Command prompt – writing sfc /scannow etc. and then get the information:
    Can not do operation – System repair pending – awaiting reboot!.
    Needless to say messages comes at every try.
