SFC reporting corrupt files? Please help..

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Performance' started by Kristan Kenney, Mar 20, 2007.

  1. Hello all,

    When I run sfc /scannow from the command line using an administrative
    command prompt, I receive the following output after Windows completes the

    C:\Windows\system32>sfc /scannow

    Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

    Beginning verification phase of system scan.
    Verification 99% complete.Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files
    but wa
    s unable to fix some of them.
    Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example

    I have reviewed the CBS.log file to the best of my ability and don't see
    anything that stands out. Should I be worried about this, or perhaps
    reinstall Windows? I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate, 64-bit.

    Can you send me the cbs.log file? Use the email address posted here and a
    subject line of 'per req' to get past the filters.

    Best of Luck,

    i have the identical situation as Kenney.

    an ms tech, after three hours on the phone and with easy assist, finally ran
    sfc /scannow, which produced the same results as Kenney reports. ms tech told
    me, without further probing, to reinstall vista. this is not something that i
    look forward to. so i, independently, ran sfc.exe /verifyonly, resulting in a
    35MB cbs.txt.

    I AM INCREDULOUS!!! -- the *only file* that cbs.txt reports as being
    irreparable is ..... a windows true font called mingliu.ttc !!

    i cannot believe that *this* is preventing windows firewall from operating,
    or causing a problem with Ajax technology (used by gmail, eg).

    i need an explanation -- this is becoming psychedelic!
