Access to CBS.log Denied. Why? How to view it? SFC /scannow result

Well, moving ahead with my trouble shooting, I was directed to do SFC
/scannow. My Vista Ultimate 64-bit OS executed it, said: "Windows Resource
Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. Details are
included in the CBS. Log windir\Logs\CBS.log. For example,
C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log" I tried to view the details and here is what
windows said: "Access denied!"
Well, I thought I could live without seeing what the CBS.log has to say, but
after I rebooted and ran the SFC /scannow again I got the same message. To
me, that means I'll need to see what the CBS.log file says in order to take
the next step to resolve the corrupting file situation.
So, how do I get around the "access denied", open the file, and then where
should I to go to fix what has to be fixed?
Please help.

Repost: Always state your full Windows version (e.g., Vista SP1) when
posting to this newsgroup, please. (You never state this information in
your earlier thread either.)

Repost: Is the machine fully patched? (Ditto)

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed? What
anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)? What third-party firewall
(if any)? Were any of these applications running in the background when you
installed ?

Run a /thorough/ check for hijackware, including posting your hijackthis log
to an appropriate forum.

When all else fails, HijackThis v2.0.2
(http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe) is the preferred tool to use (in
conjuction with some other utilities). HijackThis will NOT fix anything on
its own, but it will help you to both identify and remove any
hijackware/spyware with assistance from an expert. **Post your log to
http://aumha.net/viewforum.php?f=30,
http://forums.spybot.info/forumdisplay.php?f=22,
http://castlecops.com/forum67.html, or other appropriate forums for review
by an expert in such matters, not here.**

If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA or Geek Squad) computer repair shop.

Hey, you EggHead HoopleHead:

Do you realize that you have not only changed the subject line, but replied
to a post from 2008? Reckon the O/P will be back to see it? Doubt it.

news:...
: Open an administrative command prompt and create a copy of the CBS.log:
: 1. Click on Start button.
: 2. In the Start Search box, type in ?Cmd? (without quotes).
: 3. Right click on the Command Prompt in the search result listing.
: 4. In the right click menu, click on ?Run as Administrator? menu item
: 5. type "cd C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\" (without quotes)
: 6. type "copy cbs.log cbsbackup.log" (without quotes)
: 7. Type "cbsbackup.log" (without quotes) and this should open in notepad
:
: CBS.log cannot be opened when it is in use, this is the reason for your
error.
