    When trying to access the cbs.log file after running the sfc/scannow command
    in command prompt, I am not able to access the cbs.log file. Found the file
    in Windows Explorer and an error box comes up when trying to open the file
    (which tries to open through Notepad) that says "Access is denied". After
    I ran the scan, it says I have some files that are corrupt that Windows
    cannot repair, and would like to find out which one are corrupt to try to
    fix. I understand that it is probably a program not related to Windows that
    is in need of the repair. I just need to find out which program is creating
    the problem to re-install and repair the corrupt files. Thanks for any help.

    This pisses me off. We scour the communities asking for help and we ge
    you're not posting in the right place. I found out by myself that t
    access the forbidden cbs log you can copy it and paste it onto th
    desktop, then you can open it. Not that it helps much. Is anyone else a
    fed up as me with reinstalling vista after problems you just can'
    resolve? This will be the third time coming up
