C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log access denied

    Question

  • I am running Vista Home Basic SP2. I noticed that my jpeg's would not open so I decided to do some investigation. I am running AVG free and many other malware, registry clean up, etc programs. I have run a full virus scan many times but nothing comes up.

    So, last night I ran chkdsk, nothing showed as a problem

    Ran sfc /scannow, the following file was referenced C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. when I tried to open the log I got a message "access denied"

    Can someone please advise. My original problem was that my pictures would not open with a message c:\users\ so on could not be opened.

  • This process would not work for me in Windows 8.  I'm having the same situation, slow to reboot after making any changes to the system. So I ran SFC and cannot access the log.

  • This is a Vista forum. Windows 8 may be differently implemented.

    Specify what happened when you tried the procedure. Can't diagnose without data.

    Or you can ask in the Windows 8 forum

    You may want to say why you are running sfc.
