Windows 7: sfc can not fix corrupt files

sfc can not fix corrupt files

Hi,
I ran a couple of sfc /scannow and it always comes back that Windows has corrupt files and can not fix them.

I can not do a repair install as I'm running Service Pack 1 and the only media i have does not have SP1 and so a repair install will not work.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how i could fix these corrupt files?

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

If you have run CCleaner or similar CBS.log may have been deleted.
Can you browse to it (%windir%\logs\cbs) and open cbs.log?

Try running the above command, right after sfc /scannow.
