    Your CBS log doesn't contain any entries for SFC. Did you run the SFC /SCANNOW command first?

    I was sure I did run it, but I've run it again anyway, just in case.CBS.zip

    You can use Option 5 in the tutorial to get only the SFC results from the huge CBS log.

    That doesn't work for me. I ran the powershell version from an elevated powershell, but no sfcdetails.txt file was produced.

    Yep, no SFC details in your CBS log.

    Are you running the SFC command from within Windows, and not at boot?

    I'm running it from within Windows. What should I be doing?

    All the timestamps in the log correspond to times when sfc was scanning.

    As a test, run Option 4 below in an elevated command prompt again, then see if using the exact command for elevated command prompt in Option 5 will give you SFC results.

    No, it still doesn't produce anything.

    But much as I don't feel comfortable using my computer knowing there is any kind of unresolved breakage in the OS, I can still run mmc.exe from an elevated powershell, which means that all the things I need it for, such as the services manager and the device manager, are still available to me. This is the first time I have ever had a problem with Windows which the smart and helpful people at Ten Forums, such as yourself, have had so much difficulty trying to resolve. Is it time to just accept that MMC is a little bit broken and live with it?

    If you like, you could try doing a repair install to try and fix Windows without losing anything.

    But wouldn't I lose the apps I have installed? It would take me many many hours to reinstall my software.

    Not if you use installation media that is the same version and language as what you currently have installed.

    Be sure to read all of the notes and warnings at the top of the tutorial though.
