Hi,

my window blinds 8 runned fine with skinstudio 7 on win 7 pc. 

Then lately Skinstudio  crashed once  and now i can`t save as new skin name etc.

My laptop doesn´t load skinstudio 8. and window blinds doesn´t theme everything there.

How can i do remove the current configuratiopn and do a clean install of both software on both systems that works for sure?.

Would be using free ccleaner+adwcleaner  and redownloading applications enough?

regards bluedxca93

Go to your command prompt in administrative mode Frieder and run "sfc /scannow" (without the quotes). When that finishes reboot your computer and see if things work better. If not, then uninstall Windowblinds (but keep your skins), then run a registry cleaner (cCleaner is good). Then reboot and reinstall the latest version of Windowblinds and then do the same for SkinStudio.

Hopefully that will resolve your issues.

Chkdsk /f /r from cmd.exe right click 'Run as Administrator' should include sfc /scannow .

Probably better to uninstall, reboot dl and install then reboot.

Hi,

works now again and its faster than before.

what i have done:

mounted my partition W72  on ubuntu 14.04.

deleted temp folders with mc (midnight commander -/ looks like norton commander)

unmounted it.

runned ntfsfix with my partition device name ( /dev/sda1)

shut the system down.

started 32 bit win7 recovery cd

runned chkdsk /f /r

shut down

started 64 bit win7 recovery cd

recovery went well

booted

logged in

runned sfc /scannow as admin

Now even the skins that looked broken looks right-/fixed now.

thx for your help !!

b.t.w. it boots even faster now.

Thought it was window blinds and it was the partition table configuration of ntfs. ( no bad sectors or harddisk damage visible smart values are ok)
