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.

    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

    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.

  4. 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.

    : 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.
