Whenever I boot this Win 7 Pro 64 confuser, I get the message:
“There was a problem starting windeu32.rom. The specified module could not be found” [Rundll window]
I have been saying “OK” and haven’t had any problems so far. BUT it is annoying.
So I tried a recovery from an earlier restore point.
This didn’t work. I got the message:
“System restore failed to extract the file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\sfi.dat from the restore point. An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x800070005)”
I have found the sfi.dat which should probably be sfi.sys as all the other files in that area are also *.sys. I figured that I would just rename it. But am not allowed to do so ‘cos I need to be an administrator. Huh!!.
Went look at “users’ There it shows “owner” as an administrator! There is also a user called ASP.NET Machine Account/Administrator/Password Protected. I think this was set up by the place I got it from.
I’m half convinced that the two messages are related in some way and I am concerned that if I really need to use Recovery it will not do the job because of the sfi.dat.
Any suggestions appreciated.
