That's cool. If you make a Restore Point first then you should be able to back off if sfc somehow makes things worse.

Did the scan it took no time at all just a few minutes and I took a screenshot of the results.

The open folder still doesn't work.

I have got the CBS.log now

Try running it 2 more times. If it still says cannot fix you may need to do a repair install

Thank you for your help MilesAhead I have run it several times now and nothing has changed.

I won't do a repair install right now because apart from this folder thing all is working well and it's not really a great big deal not being able to open the folder that way.

Thanks again

I don't blame you. Sometimes it's better to live with a glitch than risk making things worse.
