    SFC can't fix some corrupt files


    Hi guys
    I bought a HP 15-r003sv notebook two weeks ago with windows 8.1 installed .
    I ran SFC \SCANNOW two days ago and received the message " could not fix some corrupted files etc "
    I ran the command five times but the same result , so opened Notepad as Administrator and using the Open I managed to open the file C:\windows\logs\cbs\cbs.log and deleted everything , next i ran SFC \SCANNOW for sixth time and I attach the last part of the sfcdetails.txt file ,that is the part with the lines
    .... CSI 00000970 [SR] Cannot repair member file [l:36{18}]"Amd64\CNBJ2530.DPB" of prncacla.inf, Version ....etcdetails.txt thanks a lot

    Run in administrator command prompt:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Then run sfc /scannow again.
    That should fix it.
