The part I highlighted in red is what I don't understand??
I ran a new sfc, no problems. Here is the new CBS log;
I have never used skydrive or etc. I have the components file uploaded. Not sure how to send you a link? I don't do social networking. I have too much work and very little time. Besides I don't feel the need to be that connected to anybody

If you've uploaded the file, simply have the page open in your browser and copy the page address (htttp://....) and paste it in your reply here.

The CheckSUR scan did what we expected - fixed the file error - but unfortunately that was all it did. I had hoped that correcting that would reduce the number of other problems.

Sorry I didn't get back to this yesterday. I have a proposal on a new kitchen to present to a client tomorrow. I had hoped to have 3 different set ups to show them. Going be busy again today. I apologize also for my lack of knowledge on this stuff. At one point I knew it like the back of my hand. I built this system, you'd think I could figure out how to fix it! Any how here is the like to my skydrive. Didn't even know I had one, thanks, now I know.

That's just the basic link to SkyDrive - I need the one that's showing when you are displaying your file -

you can right click on the file in your browser, and select 'Sharing', then click the Get a Link option and make the file View Only and click the Create button there.
copy the link that then shows in the overlay to your reply.

That worked :)
The file is smaller than I was expecting - which may not be good news.

I'll see what I can find/do - back later.

The good news is that I can see no obvious major errors in the components file - so this should ultimately be fixable.

Now we need to do some registry manipulation.
Have you ever used Regedit? - how comfortable are you with it?

If you're reasonably OK with it then follow these instructions (If you're a total beginner, shout, and I'll go into more detail). As always BE CAREFUL - mistakes in the registry cannot be easily undone, and there are almost no built-in safeties.

Open Regedit, and navigate to the
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
subkey - find the
Component Based Servicing
subkey, and right-click on it - select Export
give the export a name, and change the 'save as type' to Registry Hive Files

Save it to somewhere safe, then exit Regedit

Now compress the saved file, and upload it to your reply.
