    Windows 8.1 Pro critical error 0x133


    After awaiting at the login screen for a 3-4 hours (doing nothing), my PC suddenly restarted. I checked the event logger and saw a critical error 0x133. I'm attaching all information as described in the forum, in the attached zip file.

    If you have any idea what could be wrong, you would make me very happy since this PC is very new. I would also like to add, that after running sfc /scannow, the system scan detected corrupt files but was unable to fix all of them (as it is saying). It also reports that details are included in C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Should I upload this file also ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi

    Please rerun the "System File Checker" and let me know whether it passes this time. How the system works now ?.

    The system file checker (sfc /scannow) still reports the same message:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>sfc /scannow

    Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

    Beginning verification phase of system scan.
    Verification 100% complete.

    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some
    of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For
    example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently not
    supported in offline servicing scenarios.

    The system seems stable, no restarts or blue screens.

    Hi

    It might be possible to fix the corrupted files by manually replacing them. I am not familiar with that so i would suggest opening a new topic in Windows Updates & Activation - Windows 8 Forums.

    Thanks for the help. I'll test the machine for a few days more, and take it from there. Thanks again.
