I have a laptop running Windows Vista. I ran an integrity scan through command prompt. "sfc /scannow" I got the following message: "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them." "Details are included in the CBS.Log"

I was able to open the log file in notepad. How do I find the corrupt files and fix them? Can I replace THE CORRUPT FILES WITH GOOD ONES FROM MY os CD?

If you ran sfc /scannow...it is supposed to replace damaged files from the DVD...so I don't see the point of trying that via some other method.

I think I'd run the appropriate hard drive diagnostic before expending any more energy.

If the hard drive checks out as OK, then I would probably try a repair install per http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/88236-repair-install-vista.html .
