Windows 7: Ran sfc /scannow, CBS log shows corrupted files cannot fix.

Ran sfc /scannow, CBS log shows corrupted files cannot fix.

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to help in advance.

I am having issues on my computer. Within the last week my windows 7 has gone white and not responding to the point I have to cut power to the laptop. Also I have had 2 updates that completely fail to install KB3126587 and KB3080079 for quite some time now. I have ran sfc /scannow several times always with the same result. That there is corrupted files that cannot be fixed. I'll attach the report for it.

I have tried different things to try and resolve my issue I am having to no avail (maybe I'm doing something wrong). All the different fixes I have tried can be found on this MS site.

The methods I tried are 1, 3, 4, 5, and an attempt at 2, and 6 before I stopped out of fear of doing something bad to my computer. None of these succeeded. Some things did get fixed but not all (although I'm not quite sure what was fixed). I have searched the forums on here and other sites but figured it would be best to post my own post and not hitch a ride off of someone else's. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I'll do my best to provide further answers if needed.

Schedule a check disk on next start up - chkdsk c: /f and see if it finds any errors.

If you don't find any disk errors, you can do a Repair installation, that is, under Windows, launch setup from a Win 7 installation disk. Repair Install.

If you don't have the disk but you do have the license key (COA stick), download it from here:
