Hello Richard, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could use OPTION THREE in the tutoral to create a sfcdetails.txt file to help you know what files the SFC scan was unable to repair. If you like you could also upload a copy of your sfcdetails.txt file here, and I'll be happy to take a look at it.

That means that you didn't open a elevated command prompt (Right click -> Run as administrator) at step 1.

Are you logged in an administrator account, and did you open a elevated command prompt like in step 2 and 3 of the tutorial below?

The elevated command prompt is suppose to open to C:\Windows\System32 instead of C:\Users. Could you give a step by step of what and how you are opening the elevated command prompt to see what may be wrong? I'm suspecting that it may the issue in the yellow tip box at the top of the tutorial.


In the mean time, try going directly to the C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe file in Windows Explorer, right click on it, and click on Run as administrator to open the elevated command prompt instead.

Hmm, ok. See if using the exact command below for your specific user account RICHARD MA name may work for you instead.

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >"C:\Users\RICHARD MA\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"
