System32 File Missing in Windows® 7
Read on to know more on the system32 file missing issue in Windows 7
The Windows 7 is the latest released operating system from Microsoft and is much faster and functional than its predecessors. The folders that are used to store important system files are called as system folders. Most of the system folders will be on that hard drive partition on which the OS is installed. The Windows 7 hides the system folders by default in order to prevent unauthorized access by the users and other installed applications. The system folder which contains the most important system files that are frequently accessed by the OS and other installed applications is separated out and called as system 32 folder. The system 32 folder contains the files of the OS holding critical information about the working configuration of the entire OS and the applications, drivers that are installed in the OS. Any issues with the files in the system32 folder will therefore cause criticality and instability in the system which might end up in a data corruption or even a system crash.
Discussed below are some points that will help fix system32 file issues in your system:
- Remove active threats
- Use system file checker
- Repair install or reinstall
Remove active threats
The active threats in your computer like viruses, malware, spyware etc. can result in system32 file issues in the installed Windows 7 operating system. This is because such threat types tend to temporarily modify or infect the files in the system32 folder causing the error console in the OS to display system32 file errors. Running a thorough scan of all the files in the system hard disk using suitable threat removal tools offering comprehensive protection against multiple threat types will help remove all threats and neutralize active infections in your system.
Use system file checker
The system file checker is a command line utility in the Windows 7 OS that scans for and attempts to fix the errors in the system 32 files folder. Running a system file scan using the file checker utility after inserting the original Windows 7 installation disk will enable the utility to scan for and replace corrupted or infected files in the system 32 folder with their original ones that are on the installation disk.
Repair install or reinstall
In some cases the issues or active threats in your computer will damage or permanently remove the files in the system 32 folder of Windows 7 which causes normal system file recovery options to fail. In such cases it is advised to go for a repair install or complete reinstall of the Windows 7 OS to effectively solve all the issues with the system 32 files in your computer. The repair, install or reinstall can be done using the original Windows 7 installation disk containing the same build version of the currently installed OS.
