Windows 7: Registry Anomaly

Anything touched by SFC will have a [SR] in the entry, but they will be far too many of these in the CBS file. And CBS has a ton of other crap in them.

How do I analyze the command to detect corrupt files in Windows 7? - Super User

Search for:

"corrup"
"repair"
"Repairing corrupted file"
"Cannot repair member file"
"Repaired file"

Easiest to do this in a command prompt and log in to the directory that includes. CBS.log

then you can use something like

findstr /c:"Cannot repair" CBS.log | More

Or redirect the output to a text file

> sfcdetails.txt

instead of piping thru More
As I noted earlier: When I try to open the CBC.log file, access is denied!!

I opened the command prompt as Admin. before generating the SFC logfile. The CBS.log file is 1.58mb and permissions are read/write for Admin.

Do I have to generate the logfile in SAFE mode? If so, this brings up another problem: I CAN NO LONGER CALL UP THE ADVANCED BOOT OPTIONS MENU BY HOLDING F6!!!!

Do I have to boot into command prompt using a boot disk?

HEEEEEELLLLLPPPPPP!!!!!.............this started out as 1 problem and has grown to 3.

You must need to change Permissions - not sure on that one. That doesn't make sense.

And yes one to three is typical when a machine is hosed.

Are you sure F6 is the correct one for your machine? What IS your machine?

Do you have a System Repair disk?

And yes - Safe mode would be best at this point.

Joe - please try to keep posts in one thread. Please.

Are you pressing it every second or so after turning on the machine?

I corrected my link error in prior post(s) Try this link, think my copy & paste didn't work for link System Update Redness Tool x64

If you download and run SURT it will create a temporary file located at: C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\ with a section that indicates missing or corrupt files (easier to read) I should have the missing cats, mums, or manifests in my repository 400,000+ files.

I didn't want to further complicate an already complicated thread, but better this way, for me anyway.

Tried continuous press, press very quickly, and press every second or so.

It always worked before, no matter what pressing frequency I used.

Replaced keyboard last month. Tested just before with an online keyboard tester and ALL keys work, including F8. Also, F12 (boot options) works as well.

Yes.............already got around the typo.

I added a program to short-circuit the automatic Win 10 upgrade. Will playing with the update manager get me back into those annoying (and resource killing) update downloads.

I shut off auto update and do my own every couple weeks.

Admin (ME) has full read/write permissions already.

Yes, it has always been F8.

SystemUpdateReadinessTool creates its own temporary log at: C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR is much easier to read and will open in Notepad.

Great.

There are 2 logs generated at that location:

CheckSUR,log
and
CheckSURpersist.log

should I attach both?
