sfc.exe /scannow error

Hello,

Windows 7 x64

I'm new to SFC /scannow. I'm getting an error at 36%

I've attached my log as I'm not sure what to do next.

I'd love any advice you might have

Thanks!

How many times have you tried running it? 3 is recommended.

many times. I renamed the original log so I could upload a file that wasn't 5mb in size. I've definitely tried more than 3 times.

Thanks

Thanks for the link.

I just clicked on start and typed in cmd and then at that command prompt i typed sfc.exe /scannow

I'm assuming that's not going to cut it is it?

You'll need an Elevated Command Prompt.

What is the problem you're trying to repair?

Try running it a couple more times to see if it can fix the bad files. If not and performance issues exist you may need to run a Repair Install

I've tried several times. I think you're right. The next step is a repair install. I hope that will get things back on track. Thanks for the link!
