Vista Home - Validation error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I removed some viruses from my computer and after I reboot it,
    I get validation error for my Vista Home. Please help.

    File Scan Data-->
    File Mismatch: C:\Windows\system32\Slsvc.exe[6.0.6001.18000]

    Well I followed these steps and my Vista works now. U have my permission to remove this topic.

    1)    Login to Vista in Normal Mode (not safe mode)

    2)    Launch an Internet Browser

    3)    Type: %windir%\system32\ in the browser's address field

    4)    Scroll down till you find the file cmd.exe

    5)    Right-click the file and select 'Run as Administrator'

    6)    In the CMD window, type: sfc /scannow

    7)    Reboot twice and see if that resolves the issue.
