    HELP! SFC finds corrupt files in new PC/Win8 install

    Just purchased a new desktop PC with Win8, after some video card issues (now resolved), tried to run System File Checker and received:
    "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them...."
    I copied the CBS file to take a look but i'm not really sure which of the multiple errors are causing my issue.
    I've got a few:
    "Failed to create CSI transaction"
    "Failed to get CSI Inventory"

    thanks for any help!

    You might have to run sfc /scannow a few times as needed until you get a message: Windows did not find any integrity violation.

    Also, try to run it in safe mode
