Windows 7: sfc /scannow log issue

Windows 7 Pro x64
sfc /scannow log issue


I just ran sfc /scannow in CMD with Admin privileges and got this:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7600]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Windows\system32>sfc /scannow

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example

What do I do with this? :)

You can have a look into the CBS.log to see which files are not fixed. Use this command:

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log

If you want to copy that into a Notepad, Wordpad or Word document, right click on the cmd window > Select all > right click again > paste into Notepad, etc.
