This should clear most of the problems...

I've uploaded afile - - to my OneDrive at Noel'sOneDrive
Please downloadand save it.

Right-click onthe saved file and select Extract all...
Change the targetto C:\ and click on Extract

Close all windows(it would be a good idea to print these instructions!)

Now reboot to theRepair Environment - as soon as the machine restarts, start tapping F8 - this should bring up the Advanced BootMenu, at the top of which should be the option'Repair my Computer'
Pick that

You'll have tolog in with your username and password.

Pick the optionto use a Command Prompt

At the prompttype

DIR C:\jtbab

hit the enter key- if you get a 'Not Found' error try

DIR D:\jtbab


DIR E:\jtbab

The drive letterin use when you find the folder will need to be substituted (for<drive>)into the following command...

XCOPY <drive>:\hznaa <drive>:\windows\winsxs /y /i /s /v /h

(e.g. XCOPYP:\wfire P:\windows\winsxs /y /i /s /v /h )

run the command(it should take almost no time) and when the prompt returns, type


and hit the Enterkey to exit Command Prompt - reboot to Normal Mode Windows.

Now run SFC /SCANNOW in an Elevated Command Prompt

then reboot andupload the new CBS.log file to your reply
