    Same version, build, and edition I have. Are you logged into the built-in Administrator account by chance?
    Er.. I am not sure. I never liked to use the account called " Administrator". I was under the impression that when I set up windows the default account.. mine.. and only account was the same as the adminstrator account.. but with my name on it..you know.. the name I choose to call the account when I first installed.

    The only things I have done to the pc is use a popular tweak tool like Tweak UI - That's not it's name.. I forget it's name at the moment. I'll try to find where I installed it.. LOL

    And, I turned off UAC and about 6 different spammy warnings that always pop up by default.. I did this various ways by searching each warning on the Net and some I remember were turned off in Services and ms config.. I don't know if any of that would account for it.

    Other things work like that too.. I can type Dxdiag.exe and hit the Enter button and Poof, it opens.

    We use the same version, so you should be able to do these things too.. odd that you cannot.. I really wish I knew why so I could tell you.

    It has to me a combination of the UAC off and/or the Tweak tool. I'll have to do some testing later tonight to see. I have UAC at the top level though.

    I found the app I was using. It's called Ultimate Windows Tweaker. I had forgot I stuck it off in C drive. I think it just runs by it's executable and does not need to install.. thats why I could not find it. LOL.

    Thanks for the info. Coming to this thread late. Gave it a shot on a laptop here, SFC found corrupted files it couldn't fix. Tried your method (Seeing that it's the same for Vista), but it keeps returning the error:

    "Cannot open %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log."

    I tried changing my security permissions to full control, but still no dice. Any ideas?

    This is on a Toshiba L305 series running Vista HP SP1. I'm about to install SP2. Perhaps that will repair the files?

    Thanks!

    Installing the SP2 may be able to. Please post back if not with any other information about it.

    After installing SP2, SFC still returns corrupt files, but nothing seems amiss as far as I can tell, and performance is good. I forgot to run the findstr command, but my feeling is that the results would have been the same.

    Well, if you develop issues from the corrupted files, you could:
