Click your Start Orb, in the Search programs and files window type cmd


Under Programs(1) you should see cmd.exe


Right click cmd.exe and choose Run as administrator.


Click Yes or enter the Administrator Password.


This will open an elevated command prompt or command prompt as Administrator.


Immediately following the displayed string type or copy/paste the following line...


findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt


Press <Enter> to execute the command.


Immediately following the displayed string type exit

Press <Enter> to execute the command and close the window..


Look for a new text document on your desktop named sfcdetails.txt.


Open the document and copy/paste the contents into your next post.
