Windows 7: Windows Explorer won't allow files to be saved to Documents

Roxy,

From an elevated command prompt, navigate to the folder with cbs.log.
Now using the DEL command, can you delete cbs.log?

Ok. I finally was able to open the CBSLog. A huge file which is quite complicated for me to determine what is what.

Yet, the most prominent file which was not fixable was tcpmon.ini.
This is one of the lines: CSI 000011c4 [SR] Could not reproject corrupted file [ml:520{260},l:46{23}]"\??\C:\Windows\System32"\[l:20{10}]"tcpmon.ini"; source file in store is also corrupted

What do you figure is going on?

Thank you.

I would back up my documents and perform a repair install.

Roxy,
From an elevated command prompt:
Navigate to the folder with cbs.log
Delete cbs.log
Run SFC /Scannow once and only once.

findstr /c:"[SR]" cbs.log > sfcdetails.txt

Attach sfcdetails.txt or the contents thereof to your next post

Karlsnooks: Sorry, I can't do anything to CBS.log. Windows won't let me delete or move or anything. What I did earlier was copy it to my external drive and was able to read it.

Actually, when I click on delete CBS.log, a msge pops up saying File In Use -- it is open in Windows Modules Installer. Close the file and try again...

What can I do to pry it from Windows Modules Installer?

Thank you.
