    Ran the scan, but when I went to C:WINDOWS\logs\cbs, I couldn't open the CBS text file. I got a message "Access Denied". Say what?
    copy the cbs log and paste into some other location.

    By doing this you can open the log.

    I do believe you're right. I have done the repair install. I am updating as we speak. I'll let you know what happens next!

    "SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker" update


    I did all of that, all of the scans, the repair install, all of it, and just now, I clicked on "Computer" and Windows explorer is still trying to open. I clicked off of that, and on to the system folders icon in the taskbar..., same thing. What the heck is going on? Is there a hardware glitch that can cause this? I have never had this problem before. I have had programs that won't install, programs that install and won't open, and a bunch of other problems. If I couldn't fix the problem, I could find a solution. What is this? What IS this?

    Billy,

    I'm not sure what the issue may be, but you might consider starting over fresh with a clean install of Windows 7 instead.

    ERRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!! I have been dodging that like the plague! But you're probably right. I ran the scans again after posting my last comment, and got a clean bii of health. I am really wondering about my HDD now. Or even the RAM. I don't know. I'll see how long it lasts, and go from there...

    Thank you so much for your assistance.

    Read Only the "SFC" Scan Results from the CBS.LOG did not work


    I exactly followed your instructions from your SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker page. I copied and pasted at the elvated command prompt,as instructed. I opened up th3e text file at Desktop and it is blank. I have been struggling with my [Dell 1520 running Win 7 54bit] laptop crashing. Somewhere something is corrupted. I have checked using CCleaner, Vipre and Malwarebytes and one thing I did do was to update bios from 0 to ver 7. Any ideas or advice what I may do next? Win 32 was loaded first and then, Win 64bit.

    From crashing I was able to start laptop then on the "problem" menu I chose from "Start Normally or Restore to Earlier" and am working from there.

    Thank you Debra1533

    Hello Debra,

    Did you run the SFC /SCANNOW command in Windows prior to trying OPTION THREE?

    Actually I was first interested in checking for existing errors prior to the scan and that's why I selected to do #3 before scanning as I was worried about losing something in the scan....I read your warnings and it concerned me. I have one 8gig memory stick and used that to back up my laptop using Win Backup program. This was done before all the crashing started. Worried that if I run scan that can delete or change things I may lose something important before realizing what's been corrupted first. I appreciate any advice; thanks so much Debra1533

    Ah, ok. That's why the sfcdetails.txt file is empty since you haven't run SFC to have any entries in your CBS.log file to extract from.

    The SFC scan isn't going to hurt your system. The only thing you do need to keep in mind is if you have modified any system files, then they will also be restored to default.

    Considering all I have said about Win running on previous working version; what should I really be concerned about losing that's ciritcal or may effect (cause future crashes - which is what I'm trying to avoid?) I'm unable to conceive of what may be deleted and so much has gone on in the way of scans and fixes (Ccleaner, Malwarebytes & Vipre) what might I want to back-up or copy first? Thanks Just trying not to have more troubles as before I started this. Debra 1533

    System files is so broad I can;t wrap my head around what changes I could have possibly made.. any ideas of avergae changes programs may have made and how do I know what to restore later?

    I am hoping that a Win Back-up will prevent any future problems that I can restore if need be. I am performing the Back up now and will await a reply from you before I do the SFC Scan Thanks Debra1533
