    Win8.1 sfc/ scannow found corrupt files but cant fix them!


    Hello,
    Due to explorer.exe crashing after i always try to open a particular folder, i ran the sfc /scannow with admin privileges in SAFE MODE but it says:

    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.
    So i ran the
    findstr /C:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\CBS\CBS.log > "%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"
    command..

    Here's the file: sfcdetails.txt

    PS: i do not have another computer with same OS to get the replacement files...what should i do??

    I am not familiar with the command you tried but have you tried Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth? using Adm CMD Prompt. It could take a while to complete.

    I already did it but i get an error: 0x800f0906

    The source files could not be downloaded.
    Use the "source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to
    restored the feature. For more information on specifying a source location see
    Configure a Windows Repair Source.

    The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log
    Should i post the log?

    Edit: the command i did just copies the CBS log onto the desktop so you know while files it could not repair..

    When was the last time you ran Sfc /scannow and it finished without finding any problems?

    Download / get the original windows iso, insert it, or mount it, in the current system and select repair. This will fix it. Happened to me before. All data will be left intact. Operation takes just about 10 minutes.
