    SFC found corrupted files.


    I was running SFC after reaching 100% I get this error
    Code:
    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.

    I have no idea what to do. I don't want to do another clean install Here is my CBS log as well if it'll help

    Sometimes it needs to be run a few times, sometimes the parent file has to be repaired first before the child or subordinate files can be repaired as well.

    Also running programs can interfere with the repair , please close as many programs as you can in your system tray.

    Run SFC at least 3 times, I know its long and boring but necessary.

    Hello Hunk,

    In addition to the above, if SFC is not able to repair them afterwards, then see if doing what's in the blue Note box at the end of Option One of the tutorial below may be able to help.
    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
