Windows 8.1 Home 64 bit

Good afternoon,
I'm also having issues with files that cannot be fixed. I have attached my sfc detail log. I would appreciate it someone could take a look at it and help me resolve this issue. Thanks again!

Multiple machines
I know this thread is old....

Hello all.

Glad I found this... I have multiple machines running 7, 8 and 10

current machine had 7 upgraded to 10 and recently came back from Lenovo running, but Outlook isn't working and I get a MAPI can't find emsmdb.32.dll well worked on that for a little bit and discovered the whole MAPI folder is missing, it won't even open the Mail in Control Panel.

so I ran a sfc /scannow
it came back with errors but couldn't repair.

Love the script to look at the detailed log. I see it has an issue with the opencl.dll -can't repair.
working on that now....

So, does the fact that I upgraded this to 10 disqualify me from asking for assistance here? I am sure that if it does, when I have a question on windows 7 I'll check here first.
Also I know this thread is old... got off subject a little and came back around... So am I wrong to keep it alive, it does have some good information.

I'm currently a student doing a Maths degree and have 4 crucial exams coming up, of which my first is on the 13th, so my time is very limited at the moment and I might not be able to post much (once a day minimum), but I will get you up and running again! So just hang in there and we'll fix this as soon as possible! If you haven't heard from me in a while, feel free to shoot me a PM to remind me - at the last count, I have 24 tabs open that I need to reply to so it's quite easy to lose one in the mix.

Hmm, strangely in all 653,711 lines of your last CBS.log I can't see any sign of SFC being run so let's run it again (now redundant) and get a new log:

SFC Scan
  1. Click on the Start button and in the search box, type Command Prompt
  2. When you see Command Prompt on the list, right-click on it and select Run as administrator
  3. When command prompt opens, copy and paste the following commands into it, press enter after each

    del %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log

    sfc /scannow

    Wait for this to finish before you continue

    copy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log %userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt
  4. This will create a file, cbs.txt on your Desktop. Please zip it up and attach this to your next post.

The end of your CBS log shows the following error...

This is a complex error, but means that where SFC is looking for a file, it's actually finding what looks like a folder.

In the few cases that I've seen of this, the error is itself the tip of a rather large iceberg.

You may well find that the quickest solution is going to be a repair install.
