    sfc /scannow can't fix corrupt files.


    Hello!

    After running the sfc /scannow at command prompt, as administrator, here's what it says:

    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix someof them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Forexample C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently notsupported in offline servicing scenarios.
    Im at windows 8.1.

    CBS.log AND sfcdetails are attached to this post.

    Any ideas?

    Hello dream3,

    For now, you might see if doing what's in the blue note box at the bottom of OPTION TWO in the tutorial below may be able to help.

    Thanks a lot Brink!

    Yes, I had already done those but didn't help unfortunately. sfc keeps telling me there are corrupt things.

    In that case, go ahead and post back with your sfcdetails.txt file.

    Just to verify, you did run DISM, and tried SFC again afterwards?

    Correct.

    I've already uploaded my sfcdetails.

    Thanks!

    Your sfcdetails.txt file shows that the MSDTC.LOG file could not be repaired since it cannot be decompressed.

    If you are not having any issues, then I wouldn't worry about it.

    Well Im having some random freezes. I guess the problem is not there then?

    What if I wanted to correct that small issue, too difficult?


    For instance this guy managed to fix it:
    [SOLVED] CBS.LOG Corrupted - Sysnative Forums

    Could I use the same fix?
