After running the sfc process, I'm left with this little nugget.

Windows Resource Protection
found corrupt files but was unable
to fix some of them. Details are
included in the CBS.Log %WinDir%
\Logs\CBS\CBS.log.
MicroSoft says to fix this manually with a good copy of the file. I have 5 corrupt files-so how do I identify them that I can replace 'em and from where? How do I send the log file if it's 28,000kb?

Hi, how many times have you run the sfc /scannow?

Quite often a couple more runs will fix problems that weren't fixed the first time.

 

Run it three more times, let us know how you get on.

 

Edit to add,

Is this the same computer and connected to the problems you are having in this thread?

If so may be best to let Ztruker know as he is more up to date with what is happening.

Yes it is same computer. Win7 x64. I've run sfc several times now with no change;still the same message that some corrupt files could not be fixed. Should I run the repair disk I made some time ago?

This is getting confusing, please mention this in the other thread, then Ztruker knows and can advise better than I can.

I'm not happy with confusion but when you're 89 it's tough to avoid sometimes.

I see this thread so I'm up on what's going on.

 

See if running SURT helps.

 

See here: What is the System Update Readiness Tool?

The System Update Readiness Tool can help fix problems that might prevent Windows updates and service packs from installing. For example, an update might not install if a damaged system file prevents the update from recognizing the version of Windows that's running on your computer.

If your computer is having problems installing an update or a service pack, download and install the tool, which runs automatically. Then, try installing the update or service pack again.

Good information here: How to Analyze the System Update Readiness Tool CheckSur.log File
