Both your drives are OK.

Per your CBS.log: [HRESULT = 0x80073712 - ERROR_SXS_COMPONENT_STORE_CORRUPT]

Easiest fix for you is a Repair Install. Please read through the attachment and watch Brian's Video. Create a full disk image (backup) of your drive that contains your Operating System (Windows 7) with component hive corruption there is a possibility it will fail irreversibly.

If you open the attachment in Word the hyperlinks are active and work by pressing the CTRL key and clicking on the link.

Ok, thank you.
Since the pc is not mine, I don't know when I'm going to be able to do a repair install.

Whenever you get time to access th ailing computer, you can do it. Make sure you back up your drive (full disk image) that has the OS on it to another drive. Better safe than sorry! Sometimes, not very often, repair installs fail.

AOMEI Backupper free and Macrium Reflect free are routinely recommended on SevenForums, I found AOMEI a little more user friendly, i.e. the Graphical User Interface (GUI) is simpler. They both do an excellent job.
