Is this s test :)

Lots of info but you left out some that is critical, like How did you get to this state?

Did you add or remove any software or hardware?
Did you have to remove some malware infection.
Did you run a registry cleaner?
Why are you running sigverif?

Are you/were you following some instructions from somewhere? If so, provide a link please.
