I have run sfc /scannow and received the message that "corrupt files were found but could not be repaired". How do you fix the corrupt files without reinstalling Windows?

I would run the chkdsk /r command...then run sfc /scannow again...based on the principle that the files which could not be repaired...may lie on bad sectors of the partition.

Can you please also provide the following log.

Convert CBS.log to CBS.txt
  • Click on the Win7Orb_zps4dae3b32.jpg button => Inside the search box copy and paste the following command:
    cmd /c copy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log "%userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt"
  • Press Enter
  • Once this has completed please go to your Desktop and you will find CBS.txt => Please upload CBS.txt to this thread
Please Note:: if the file is too big to upload to you next post please upload via Dropbox or One Drive
