I ran sfc /scannow in safe mode because when I turned my pc on this morning it would not open up the login screen. I saw "Please Wait" for 20 minutes, but never got to the login screen. After completion of the scan the results were that "windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them" then gives reference to where the cbs.log file is located. I went and opened the log, but have no idea how to read it, what should I look for to find out what files are corrupt and unfixable?

I guess look for anything that says "error" or "failure", or something along those lines.
