sfc / scannow

I am getting bluescreen and have been reading some threads about this.
1. verifier.exe is not working in that sence that it willnot run and I have to step back to system restoire point.
2. Running "Who crashed" gives some clue.
3. Running sfc / scannow gave the message in prompt that not all could be fixed and I hade to vew CBS.Log. When I tried to do that I gor "Access denied" in spite that I was logged in as Administrator.
How can I get access to my CBS.Log note?

Hello joanev.



Perhaps running the sfc /scan from the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) will help, have a look at this tutorial at the link below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

sfc /scannow

Hello Bar Foot Kid.
I did follow your instruction but your promt is different from mine.
Yours isat start x:\windows\system32 (and a symbol that I cannot find at my keybord).
Mine is from start x:\sourcess /the same symbol as above). I cannot deleate \sourcess. I tryed to type after sourcess \windows\system32. The problem is the symbol, right pointed which is not on my keybord.
Where is that symbol?

Hello Joanev.



Which method are you trying to use from the above tutorial, they are completely separate and not interchangeable.

Are those "f:" the target drive letters from your system as determined using Method One from the tutorial? You have to use your specific drive letters.

So I love the sfc /scannow command, but usually when I run it on a computer, it will say it found errors but couldn't fix them, probably because the computer is using them.
