    Corrupt files found but not fixed in SFC /Scannow


    Hi

    on my windows 8.1 x64 PC I am having a lot of problems with programs hanging or not starting etc

    I ran SFC /Scannow and got this message

    "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."

    The file will not open and also how do I get the corrupted files fixed.

    I have run a Kaspersky 10 Boot Disk anti-virus scan and no issues were found.

    So how do I fix the corrupt files?

    Thanks

    Daniel

    Hi

    I ran Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth,
    it completed successfully then I ran sfc /scannow but got the same result,
    corrupt files not fixed.

    Cheers

    Try it again.
    If it doesn't work the second time, you have some serious issues to fix.

    Hi Daniel,
    In order to view CBS.log, you will need to copy the file to your desktop.

    Sometimes, you need to run sfc multiple times until succeeded. If not

    Do you have Windows 8 installation disk ? if so, try to run sfc offline.

    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    1. Boot your PC from the installation disk
    2. On the next screen, hold down SHIFT key and press F10, a command prompt should be displayed.
    3. Type: diskpart <ENTER> then type list volume <ENTER> and take a note of the drive letter of your System Reserved & Windows OS. Type: Exit
    4. Type: sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=d:\windows where c: is the system reserved d: is your Windows OS drive

    Are you running sfc from an administrator command prompt? Hit win-x and select Command Prompt (Admin).

    You can open an Administrative command prompt and paste the command below. It will create a SFCdetails.txt file on your desktop. Look near the end of that text file for references for "Unable to Repair" types.

    findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"
