Not sure what happened.  It does look like it might have run

 

sfc /scannow but the other stuff looks like it is eating its own text.

 

Did the sfc /scannow

run for a while and then say it was able to fix all files or that there were none that needed fixing?  Then we don't need the 

 

findstr  /c:"[SR]"  \windows\logs\cbs\cbs.log  >  \windows\logs\cbs\junk.txt 
notepad \windows\logs\cbs\junk.txt 

If you do need them then they should be copied and pasted not retyped.

 

Assuming the sfc ran OK or even if it didn't go on and do the VEW logs.

There are ads on Geekstogo.  You just don't see them after you login. So that is normal.

 

I use the AdBlock Plus add in for Chrome, Firefox and IE and I never see ads.  

 

Go to adblockplus.org with your browser and install it.  Once you install it there is a Stop sign icon in the top right of the browser.  Right click on it and select Options    some well-behaved ads.  I always uncheck the box where it says: Allow some non-intrusive advertising.

 

Looking at your errors:

This one is easy.  There is a Fixit for it:

This one is normal if the Wired connection is not used because you connect wirelessly.  You can disable the wired connection in Network and Sharing Center or just ignore it.

The print spooler will try to regenerate the driver information from the driver store, which is where drivers are saved before they are installed. No user action is required.

 

Even tho it says no user action required - something is not happy so if you use the Brother printer I would uninstall it, download the latest software and reinstall it.

Event: 412 Source: Microsoft-Windows-TaskScheduler
Task Scheduler service failed to launch tasks triggered by computer startup. Additional Data: Error Value: 2147942402. User Action: restart task scheduler service.

 

 

This is usually caused by CCleaner which I see you have installed.  They had a bad version that did something awful to the tasks.  I would uninstall CCleanerso it doesn't do it again.

 

I don't know of a magic fix for this.  It can be fixed but it's a pain.  Unfortunately it needs to be fixed since the task scheduler is at the heart of windows.  

 

First make sure you can see hidden system files:

 

Open the Control Panel menu and click Folder Options.
    After the new window appears select the View tab.
    Put a checkmark in the checkbox labeled Display the contents of system folders.
    Under the Hidden files and folders section select the radio button labeled Show hidden files and folders.
    Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide file extensions for known file types.
    Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide protected operating system files.
    Press the Apply button and then the OK button
 
Second make a copy of the whole folder C:\Windows\System32\tasks  and paste it somewhere like your desktop.  (Ignore the dire warning MS gives you.  You need to be able to see the files.  You will need to give permission several times and it may throw up some strange comments about the file already being present.  Just tell it OK.) 
 
Third, type:
 
task 
in the Search box.  When it finds Task Scheduler, Double click on it.
Normally you get one or more errors when you open Task Scheduler.  Just hit OK until the errors stop.
Click on Task Scheduler Library.  IF you get an error here then look in the right pane and see if you see any tasks.  The ones you can see are probably OK.  Right click on Start and Open Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Tasks.  (Ignore the dire warning MS gives you.  You need to be able to see the files)  then compare the tasks in the Tasks folder with those that are visible in the right pane of Task Scheduler.  Delete any from C:\windows\System32\Tasks that do not show up in the right pane or which the error complains about.
Close Task Scheduler and reopen it and see if the error is gone when you open Task Scheduler Library.  (Normally the errors are not here but down in the Windows folder.  There is no need to restore the tasks in the first level of Task Scheduler Library).  Click on the arrow in front of Task Scheduler Library and you should see some more folders.  Click on each folder and see if you get an error when you click on it.  When you get to Microsoft, click on the arrow in front of it to open it up.  Usually there are two:  Windows and Windows Defender.  Click on the arrow in front of Windows and you will see a bunch of folders show up.  Now go through and click on each folder starting at the top of the list.  (Active Directory Rights Management).  There are two tasks in the folder.  If you only get one error and then you can see one task then the task that you can't see is bad.  Delete it from C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\Microsoft\Windows\Active Directory Rights Management\.  Close Task Scheduler and reopen.  Drill back down to Active Directory Rights Management and see if you get the error.  If the error is gone you deleted the correct task.  To restore it, right click on Active Directory Rights Management and select Import Task.  Point the window that open to task in the COPY of the folder you made earlier and find the Active Directory Rights Management folder.  It will appear to be empty.  Change the XML files (.xml) to All Files (*.*) and the tasks will appear.  Choose the one that you deleted and Open.  Then OK.  It's best to close task scheduler and reopen each time or any time you don't see a task that was visible before (that means task scheduler has crashed).
 
Move down through all of the windows folders in the task library repeating the above procedure for each error until you no longer 
get an error when you open task scheduler.

 

Maybe you will be luck and just have one error.  If that's the case it's probably the task in Defrag.  For some reason it likes to fail even without CCleaner.

Sorry, but when i try to copy and paste System32 file folder to my desktop,many of the files will not transfer because it says they are being used elsewhere. also when i open Task scheduler there are three panels so i am not sure which you mean. also when i open the system 32 file that i copied without the files that couldn't be moved, i can not find just tasks, there is taskeng.exe, there istaskkill.exe. taskmgr.exe taskschd.dll etc. but no Tasks folder.

Sorry.  I thought I had fixed that.  It should be make a copy of C:\windows\system32\tasks not c:\windows\system32

 

 

The above shows task scheduler opened to the first of the Microsoft, Windows folders.  The tasks are in the top middle pane.  Forgot about the garbage on the right.

You don't get any errors when you open Task Scheduler or when you go through the folders?

 

Did you  reinstall the Brother printer?

 

Download the fix.zip file and save it.  Right click on the file and Extract All which should give you a fix.vbs file.  Right click on fix.vbs and Run As Administrator.

 

This should correct the Application error.

Not sure what happened with the vbs.  I don't have Vista any more so can't test it.  I got the program from:

 

https://support.micr...5?wa=wsignin1.0

 

The error is just a nuisance so it's nothing that has to be fixed.  

 

Are you able to print?
