sfc /scannow returns errors: Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.

    General discussion

  • Hello, most esteemed tech experts...

    I have recently run sfc /scannow and it has return some concerns. I had a heck of a time figuring out how to get the logs files for this but I did. The issue I am having is, I really don't know how to read this or what I am looking for??? My system seems to run just fine. But in the past it , what seemed to be a freeze during updates before a shutdown, it took like 30 to 40 minutes I thought my systems was breaking or broken.

    Could someone please take a look at this, then maybe be willing to help troubleshoot this with me, so I might be able to help others later. It seems there are people with this same issue, however, their reports(logs) don't look the same as mine.

    Troy (trigity)

    P.S. How can I include the txt.file I saved for a tech to look at it

  • I don't have a OS disk, just the rescue disks I made when I got my laptop. I had to make 4 of them. Reviewing the CBS file it looks like

    That's what I can see with failures, do I need to completely re-install to factory specs to make this go away??

  • Backup your files obviously then reset to factory fresh

    faster that picking around for all the evident issues

    Ok Here's the deal! I restored my Asus K53SV to factory specifications. Before I did anything; updates, installs, or product updates, I ran sfc /scannow and it turned this up again - and its the same CBS file logs = see above. Is this normal for some 640 HDD 40/60 split partition with 25GB restore partition. I am at a loss now. What should happen next? If its nothing I should worry about fine, but A+ plus book says otherwise. Is there a patch, hotfix, update or what?

    Desperately seeking an answer

  • Definitely seems to be a bad image.

    Contact the vendor and explain the situation

  • Hi there,

    Did you get anywhere with this in the end?

    My friend has just brought me his laptop, Asus K54L. It is a week old. He has loaded Wavelab and Vst plugins as well as fruity loops (he writes music). Other than these programs he's just done some internet browsing.

    Suddenly his explorer.exe stops working whenever he is using the windows explorer application to browse files, not immediately when using windows explorer but usually but after swicthing a few directories or trying to drag and drop (sometimes the copy will start and some files get copied but the job terminates when explorer.exe crashes.

    He ran sfc /scannow and it found and fixed a few things but didn't solve the issue.

    We decided to make the asus 5 DVD disc which restores the factory image / day 1 state. just like above, i run sfc /scannow immediately after a full purge and image restore I get message that there were issues and a well populated SBC file. Is it likely all the asus images for different machine models have an issue? or is there no real issue here, is this just the way Asus rolls with its images? We haven't noticed the explorer crash issue so these seem unrelated and probably due to my friends specialist software.

    I would copy paste the SBC but it is 7MB!

    cheers,

    Ian

  • If a recovery is still showing problems, especially after installing all Windows updates. Then its likely some component is not compatible and may be causing the problem.

    If that is evident, contact the vendor.

    I believe Sony has all these programs so pester sony for updates etc
