    sfc scannow can't repair

    When I run sfc /scannow, I get the following error that was not fixed:

    2010-03-30 10:57:22, Info CSI 00000168 [SR] Cannot repair member file [l:24{12}]"settings.ini" of Microsoft-Windows-Sidebar, Version = 6.0.6002.18005, pA = PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_AMD64 (9), Culture neutral, VersionScope = 1 nonSxS, PublicKeyToken = {l:8 b:31bf3856ad364e35}, Type neutral, TypeName neutral, PublicKey neutral in the store, hash mismatch

    I also get 5 others which are similar. I do not use the sidebar, but can this slow down other things or cause other problems?

    The sidebar gadgets will not cause any problems if they are not being utilized.

    The sfc /scannow command is very valuable, but I have seen it actually help only a very small number of posters that I have helped.

    A better solution is the repair install, if you have a Vista DVD.
