Windows 7: sfc /scannow

sfc /scannow issue

I am setting up my new laptop and the sfc /scannow process (as Administrator) repeatedly ends with:

"Windows resource protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. Details are included in the ..."

Is the fact that the scan always reports files were "successfully repaired", rather than, a clean scan - "no errors were reported" anything to be concerned about?

I am rebooting between each scan.

I have attached the cbs log file for information. Any assistance in getting this issue resolved would be appreciated.


The latest scan reported corrupt files were found and some were not fixed. On running Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, error 87 displayed.

Many thanks in advance :)

Hi Pretty Pixel,

Nothing really wrong with that log file.
The only thing you need to look at is your Device manager.
If there are any "!" marks or yellow triangles, then update those drivers

Run sfc /scannow in XP?
My mom's computer is acting up again, and I have been selected as the designated Repair Guy. Yay me! :p She is running XP sp3. I'd like to do an sfc/ scannow on the thing, but I've never done it in XP. Has anybody done this? What should I know going in? Any pointers or advice for me? Thanks!
