    win 8.1


    When i play cities skylines i get a crash to desktop and an error that says: application has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware. First it was saying "display driver stopped responding and has recovered" i solved this error by increasing the TDR time, which gave me the other error.

    It doesn't seem related to the files SFC found to be corrupted (mismatched). I'd recommend to create a new thread for that issue to hopefully get a solution for it.

    Is this a good thing to run after cleaning out some Ad ware using Malware removal tools like Malware Bytes, Spy Search & Destroy etc.

    A question about the SFC /scannow and other DISM commands ..

    Can these commands be run while using the PC, e.g. web browsing, etc?
    Or is it better to close all programs, and not to use the PC while the commands are running?

    Hello Atomcrusher,

    Yes, you can safely use the computer as usual while the command are running.

    How to list "Cannot Repair" files only.


    In regard to SFC, I know how to output the CBS.log to a text file, but I'd really like to do is output a list of the "cannot Repair" files ONLY. That is, only list the DLL files, etc. that cannot be repaired by SFC.
    Is this possible please? If so, how please?
    Thanks a lot.

    Hello thewizardox, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You can substitute [SR] in the command in OPTION THREE to anything you want to search for in the CBS.log to output to the .txt file.

    The command below using cannot repair will give you only a list of files SFC cannot repair, but no other details.

    Code:
    findstr /c:"Cannot repair" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"

    I installed Windows 8.1 Update Enterprise on a disk with the GPT partition scheme.

    I'm performing the procedure of the option one and I noticed that, writing "list volume" of the diskpart command, the "System Reserved" partition has no assigned letter. Why? How do I identify this partition in order to run the next command?

    Thanks

    Bye
