Problem signature 07 CorruptFile on Windows 7 Professional

I have had a machine crash and the startup repair cannot detect the problem.

I do see in the details Problem signature 07 CorruptFile.

Has anyone seen this before?

Thank you

Also would recommend running bootrec /rebuildbcd command to check whether the computer boots up.

An MS forum site has a recommendation of performing a repair install, but I would personally try a sfc /scannow procedure first (if you're able to) to see if this will resolve the issue.

I saw that article, I can't get far enough to do anything in it. Startup repair won't work.  sfc /scannow says another repair has to complete and to restart, but still doesn't work.

If able to boot then upload the .dmp file located in windows folder. Upload the minidump file.
