    From What I can tell, the last three lines on the .txt file should be for a normal SFC.

    Repairing 0 Components
    Beginning Verify and Repair transaction
    Repair Complete

    Since you do not have these entries, I would suggest you go to the source. Look for the CBS.log located in the path from the command to make the text (Windows\Logs\CBS). Copy it to your desktop then check it directly. Keep in mind, the entries with [SR] in them are only a small part of the entire listing for the SFC. Checking times might aid you in seeing the entire log.

    But the scan does seem to be stopping prior to completion. In many cases, even if you find an offending file, you will not be able to replace it yourself and may end up doing a refresh anyway. It could, however, give you an indication of what might be going on.

    Well, If you find the offending file(s). There is a way to copy it/them from .wim file or from another PC running the same version of Windows.

    ok well I have refreshed windows and im still encountering the same issue. one thing I have noticed is that running the check disk /r /f has moved the percentage that sfc stops at. First run was 41% then after runing another check disk the next sfc scannow was at 48% then 50%. After the refresh and then complete re install of windows (from the recovery partition) I am back to 41%. Could this be pointing to a defective hard drive?

    Dieli,

    It wouldn't hurt to do a test on the hard drive to help make sure it's ok. The link below from Acer can help show you how to.

    Dieli,

    That's good to hear that the HDD checks out ok.

    Did you ever see if you may be able to run SFC at boot like how Topgundcp posted earlier?

    I did and it just ran I never received a message or anything. I contacted acer today and they said it is a software issue and I need to talk to Microsoft. Microsoft told me the issue is being caused by one of the programs that acer installed on to the oem version of windows. He told me he can fix it but since my pc Is still covered by a warranty that I should make them take it back because having him fix it may void the warranty. I should have asked him what the fix would have been out of curiosity :/

    I appreciate all the help. I will post back with any updates I get on the matter.
