I ran sfc/scannow and found corrupt files, how do I fix this?

I ran sfc/scannow through cmd and found corrupt files. Any help would be appreciated and since I'm not good at at these sorts of things, please be patient with me and I'll try my best to follow your guidance , thank you. Should I upload the whole cbs log or just the corrputed parts?

Hello and welcome phantom mate try this

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html< if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2

then these for good measure.

(Now I notice you have AVG and personally I like a lot of other do not like this AV because I for example found many moons ago that it caused more problems than it was worth - but the choice is yours of course)

ADW download frombleeping computer delete any rubbish found with the malware scans

(NB If one is runningKaspersky security it may rant about ADW - just ignore it or disable Kasperskywhile the ADW is being used)

Hi, thanks for the help , I replaced AVG with Avast and I have Malwarebytes too. I ran the disk check, no problem there, should I run sfc/scannow again?

Run this in cmd and post the sfcdetails.txt
Code:
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >sfcdetails.txt

Hi Gokay, thanks for helping out, just tried this in cmd , I'm not sure why but it doesn't work, just goes back to the normal cmd line, take a look at the screenshot.

Update: Tried it again but this time it says the "argument after /c is missing"

Yeah, it is not supposed to show anything, browse to system32 and find sfcdetails.txt and attach here.

The 2 files mentioned are false corruption warnings, your sfc result is clean. You can uninstall KB3068708 and KB3022345(if still have it).

Glad you got rid of that AVG and if it were me I would check in the registry - HKEY's - LOCAL_MACHINE & CURRENT_USER in the Softwares to make sure there are no remnants of AVG lurking there. From past experience it has like Symantec (Norton) have a really nasty habit of their removal tool/s leaving entries still there. If you are not sure of how to check - ask.
