Ok, good. Try copying and pasting the command below in an elevated command prompt one more time.

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"

I must admit that I don't know why the command won't work for you when it has no problem finding either location by themselves.

I don't know either. Is there another way I can see what files are affected and how to repair them?

You can copy your CBS.log file from the %windir%\Logs\CBS folder to your desktop, then try the command below to see if it'll create a sfcdetails.txt file for you.

findstr /c:"[SR]" "%userprofile%\Desktop\CBS.log" >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"

Okay. Well, every time I try to open the CBS Log, it says Access Denied.

You will have to copy the CBS.log to your desktop first, then run the command I posted above.
