"SFC /verifyonly" violation in cbs.log file??

    I ran the system file checker from an Admin command prompt and all showed
    well except for a reported "violation" in the %windir%/Logs/CBS/CBS.log file.
    This is a TEXT file! Why would SFC find it as a violation? My Vista system
    works great except for the seemingly common 0x80240029 error code with
    updating Defender definition files. (there "may" be a connection...?)
    This problem is not unique to me -- others have asked the same question.
    Is this cbs.log file anything to lose sleep over? Thanks.

  2. Hello,
    Where are you seeing the violation message?
    Can you capture the exact text of the message?
    It may be because there are multiple things attempting to write to the
    cbs.log file at the same time.
    SFC logs all it's entrys to the CBS.log file, as does CBS and CSI
    Have you gone through the steps in this article already?
    934562 Error message when you try to update Windows Defender on a Windows
    Vista-based computer: "Error found: Code 0x80240029"

    Darrell,
    The violation message is within the Command Prompt window (black screen) and
    shown below my "sfc /verify only" command -- after sfc runs for about 7
    minutes. It simply reads something like :....violation in CBS.log
    file.......... Nothing more explanatory. It may have nothing to do with the
    Defender error code (which you mentioned and which I did "fix" according to
    the kb article).

    As I said, others have had this violation code too but there have been no
    followups. Perhaps it's just nothing to worry about. My Dell Vista runs
    like a charm and I may be looking at insignificant items. I reckon I just
    won't run SFC any more and just press on!

    However, if you have any ideas.......
    Bottom line: I don't understand yet how a .log file can have a violation (or
    be corrupted!).
