Welcome to the forum,

You could just go to the logs folder C:\Windows\Logs\CBS and copy that file (CBS.log) to the desktop or some other convenient location.

If it is larger than 1MB you can zip it up and attach it using these instructions,

Hi recycler,

That shouldn't be a hyperlink, it's just a text file. Can you hit the print screen button and save it in paint, then upload the screenshot here,

I see why now, you are putting this C:\Windows\Logs\CBS in your browser (Chrome)

You should be looking in windows explorer, that file icon right next to it on the taskbar.
