I am running Windows XP Home and have some corrupted system files. They usually don't crash the system, but I am unable to run certain software. For example, my Firefox browser crashes on startup every time, and I am unable to run a Norton scan (although I am protected).
I have run System Fie Checker (SFC) with the \scannow switch in the Command Prompt window. It opens up a Windows File Protection window with a progress bar and the label "Please wait while Windows verifies that all protected Windows files are intact and in their original versions".
It takes quite a long time to run and seems to complete satisfactorily, but I get no comments at the end (i.e. replaced files, unable to replace files, no action required).
I am also unable to find a log file (CBS.log) to let me know what was done.
Not sure what I may be doing wrong; any help would be much appreciated.
