When running sfc scannow the scan stops at 81 per cent. It only started this lately. I'm using windows 7 Toshiba satellite c660 Intel i3. Any ideas please as my pc is freezing lately but its only a few months old. Any help please.

How long did you wait before you decided it was frozen? sometimes it does appear to have frozen but is really still checking files. Have you got the W7 DVD in the tray when you run it?

May I ask what prompted you to run scannow? (and the previous scannows you have done)

Hi the problem i had was sluggish connection to both chrome and IE ,I ran sfc /scannow before and it worked perfect,but when i ran it again lately to see if this would resolve my problem i got this message -Windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation- and it happens at 81 per cent,my question is why does this happen on a fairly new pc,i dont have a back up disc as the recovery is on a partition which came installed,i am only back on line now after this problem as i let the pc run for a while doing its own thing from start up and seems to be running ok now. I am doing an av scan with avg now to see if anything caused the crash,thanks for the replies,my previous posts were resolved ,the last one was an ip provider problem.By the way is there any way to do a start up recovery without the disc?thanks again

You should create your own system recovery discs. Here are the instructions Toshiba.com

You can create and burn a W7 System Repair Disc

You can download the .iso and burn a W7 ordinary install DVD (get the W7 Media Refresh (SP1 U) - that's W7 with SP1 on) scroll down to 2nd panel of links for the English(USA) version.
