NOTE: The light blue text below is the relevant link to the tutorial, just click it!

If the SFC scan results report any errors, then run it again two or three more times, re-booting in between. For some reason, this can make a difference. I think it has to do with the settings.ini file sometimes showing false positives! If after that, you get a message saying Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them, then post the CBS.log which is located in C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. I am sure that someone here will be able to look at the log file and give you an answer or advice.

This tutorial [Published by Brink] will show you how to upload the file =>

I hope this helps!

Hi Dynentan,

NOTE: The light blue text below are the relevant links to my batch file and the tutorial, just click them!

IMPORTANT: The following command can only be run AFTER you have run the SFC [System File Checker] and must be run from an elevated command prompt. It will only extract errors found in the CBS.log file.
  • Click Start.
  • In the search box type cmd.
  • Right-click the cmd icon from the search results under Programs and select Run as administrator.
  • The elevated command prompt window will now open.
Copy findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log > "%userprofile%\Desktop\sfc_details.txt" [yes there are four spaces in there] and Paste it [you need to use the mouse right-click and paste for this as CTRL+V doesn’t work] into the elevated command prompt window and press Enter.

When this has finished running, it places a sfc_details.txt file on the desktop. Please upload the file. I am sure that someone here will be able to look at the log file and give you an answer or advice.

ALTERNATIVELY: You can download and run my batch file from here =>
Extract_SFC_ERRORS_From_The_CBS_Log.bat.
It is easier and performs exactly the same process as the method above [places a sfc_details.txt file on the desktop].

There is absolutely nothing personal within the file[s].

The data it produces will help us to determine what the issue/problem is. Without this information we will not be able to help you!

Download and run my batch file [which ONLY extracts the ERRORS from the CBS.log file] and take a look at the sfc_details.txt file on your desktop. You will see what I mean.

System File Check
I have a question about SFC. I'm using Windows 7Pro 64 bit. I did an anytime upgrade to Pro so the disk that I have to use in the computer is Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. Can I use this to do a system file check even though it is now a Pro version?
