sfc /scannow error

Hi,I recently ran a sfc /scannow and when it finished it showed "windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them" and to check cbs logfile.
I originally ran this scan because i was getting a problem when opening
photoshop cc,which was giving me an alert saying something like "ON
dll is missing,i then had to click off this alert about 6 times then photoshop
would open.
But since i ran the sfc /scannow it appears to have fixed it,but i don't know
why it's showing "windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them".
Also my laptop appears to be running fine and is very responsive.MBAM Pro and Avast IS
report no threats found.
Here's the cbs logfile,thanks for any help.

Hello Tommy,

This is a common message when SFC is unable to repair any files the first round. You could go through the items listed in the blue Note box at the bottom of step 4 in OPTION TWO of the tutorial below may be able to help allow SFC to repair them afterwards.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hope this helps, :)

Hi Brink,

I just ran the scannow 6 tmes and it still shows "windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them".
Should i pursue this matter any further being as the laptop is running fine?
I don't even know what the corrupt files are.

Yep, you could move on to the next item listed in the blue Note box, then test SFC again, and so on....

Just a though.
When sfc /scannow finds problems and can't fix them a reboot and then running sfc /scannow now again might help.
Have you been rebooting between scans?
My thinking is some things get fixed in Windows 7 when rebooting that can't be fix if you don't reboot.

Hi Layback Bear,

Just tried system restore,i could only go back as far as Dec 6th don't know
why there was'nt any previous dates to choose from.
Any way did a system restore to Dec 6th but still no joy sfc /scannow still
saying "windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them"
I don't have a Windows 7 disc,so i'm stuck at what to do next.

In that case, go ahead and create a sfcdetails.txt file from OPTION THREE in the tutorial and upload it here. I'll be happy to take a look at it to see what's left that can't be repaired and if it's anything to worry about or not.

Step 1 in this tutorial has the link where you can download the Win 7 ISO for your licensed version.
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

It's good to have an install disc or usb flash stick on hand in case it's ever needed.
