    Over there, the link to the SFCFix.zip file is down. Is that a custom file or can I find it somewhere else?

    Thanks for that David, but unfortunately it didn't work for me.

    Does it have to be custom made for my system?

    Read the Warning on the first link you posted. The fix was only applied to that partitcular user's PC. Running SFCFix alone won't help, you need to also have the SFCFix.zip which will replace the corrupted system file in your PC.
    I also explained about this in this post: Problems with CBS.log file (within command prompt)

    @Topgundpc,

    I found this---

    SFCFix Script

    Download SFCFix.exe (by niemiro) and save this to your Desktop

    http://www.sysnative.com/niemiro/apps/SFCFix.exe

    Download the following file, SFCFix.zip, and save this to your Desktop. Ensure that this file is namedSFCFix.zip - do not rename it

    https://dl.dropbox.com/u/16537616/SFCFix.zip

    Save any open documents and close all open windows
    On your Desktop, you should see two files: SFCFix.exe and SFCFix.zip
    Drag the file SFCFix.zip onto the file SFCFix.exe and release it
    SFCFix will now process the script
    Upon completion, a file should be created on your Desktop: SFCFix.txt
    Is this what you mean ?

    Those are direct download links.
    If Brink or somebody wishes to remove them, here is the SFCFix.zip attached---

    SFCFix.zip

    I provided the .exe in my other post.

    They have the same name, so unzip the first one & delete the first .zip before downloading the second zip.

    The SFCFix.zip is customized for his problem, not yours.

    I would suggest first to run from admin command prompt: chkdsk /r C:
    Reboot the PC and it will take a while to run, may be hours so you just have to br patient then try again:
    1. dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    2. sfc /scannow

    I joined the sysnative forums to ask about the SFCFix files.

    Maybe someone there will respond with useful information.
    If so, I will pass it on here.

    @David,
    You should not run it. The problem only apply to that partitcular user based on his CBS.log.
