    Hi Adam!
    Sorry for the delay, but I had to figure out how to convert the file from a .rtf to .txt; so here it is. I think it's the one you need, but if it''s not, I also saved the CBS.log, as well as the longer dism.log, in case you need one of them.

    I looked at all of them & I didn't understand anything, except that "there were some errors that couldn't be fixed". This is the 1st time I ever ran this scan in almost 20 years of using a PC...sad, isn't it. Oh, well, I made a vow many years ago to learn something new every day, so this has been a great learning experience for me!

    If you need anything else, let me know.

    Thanks again for your help!

    The mot interesting thing in your log is this:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 6.3.9600.17031
    Image Version: 6.3.9600.17031
    The restore operation failed. Either the repair source was not found or the comp
    onent store cannot be repaired.
    Error: 0x800f081f
    DISM failed. No operation was performed.
    I'm not sure if the script running without rebooting between steps could be an issue. Please try to reboot and run the script again. Make sure you are connected to the internet also - just open a web page first to check.

    If it fails (and the results look the same) please post the logs.

    Hi Adam!
    I rebooted & ran dism again. Since I'm not familiar with this scan, I don't know how to tell if it's completed running, as at the bottom it ends with:
    "[========= 20.0% ]"
    Since the cursor was still flashing, I didn't close it, in case it wasn't finished, but I'll attach what info is there so far.
    I'll wait to read your post before I attach the logs from the CBS & dism logs, just in case there's more info still being gathered by the scan.
    Thanks again for sticking with me on this. I'm very grateful for all your help.

    Hi Again, Adam!
    Well, I just took a peek at the scan window, & it's still's a good thing I didn't close it before,huh?!
    I guess you should just ignore the attachment I sent earlier. I'll wait an hour or two, then I'll post everything you mentioned earlier.
    Thanks again!
