Hello Trinaz,

The failed parts in your CBS.log is something for Windows Update and is not part of the SFC scan. It looks like a failure to install some Windows Updates messages.

After using OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to only see the results of your SFC scan from the CBS.log, it doesn't show anything wrong. :)

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
