    It basically means that your current installation is a newer version than the installation media you are using to do the repair install with. That won't work. The installation media needs to be the same or newer version as what's currently installed.

    It's the same so I don't understand. I tried a sfc scan from bootup with DVD but that was unsuccessful as well. I refused to give up last night and finally was able to replace the corrupted file into sys32 folder. I had to copy the file out of the extraction folder on desktop onto the desktop and then into the windows/sys32 folder. For the heck of it I ran another sfc/scannow and it came up with the same problem. I just replaced the file again and I'm in the process of doing another scan. I'll let you know the outcome.

    Windows Updates would make your current installation newer.

    So I again extracted and copied the corrupted file and ran a sfc scan and the same corrupted file error was on the sfc details report. So I extracted again copied again did a restart and ran the sfc scan and got the same error. I really hate to uninstall and reinstall all 346 windows update so I can do an upgrade (that would be my last resort to a clean install) is there any other way to replace the dllhost.exe?
    Just found the dllhost.exe is in the syswow64 folder also, should I replace that one as well?

    I wouldn't recommend to uninstall all the updates. That would most likely cause more issues.

    If you're not having any issues anymore, then I wouldn't worry about it. Otherwise, it may be time for a clean install.

    Yeah, I was trying to avoid the inevitable, but I think once I get the new hard drives I'll start with a clean install. Will keep a copy of the clean install externally as well as backing up MUCH MORE FREQUENTLY!

    Thanks for all your help, even though we couldn't get it resolved, I greatly appreciate all your efforts!!!

    Hello Shawie,

    If you are running SFC at boot, it will not be logged. It only gets logged if you run SFC in Windows.

    Are you running SFC at boot or in Windows?

    tried both online (in windows) and offline. Even though there is information in the original file the saved text on the desktop is empty. So I've no idea where to go from here tbh ... if i delete the original file cbs.log will it create a new one once another scan has been run?
