    got a blue screen when I tried to boot my PC.
    found KB 307545 and ran CHKDSK /r using Recovery Console which found
    an error, but blue screen persisted.
    So then performed part 1 using Recovery Console; copying deleting etc
    the indicated files. That went OK no surprises But
    Am stuck on part 2.
    Cannot access System Volume Information folder. but mouse over says
    folder is empty.
    So did not do any of the steps yet.

    Windows runs now but only limited extent.
    please help

    cacls "C:/System Volume Information" /E /G "your user name":F
