    Win 10, v1909, SFC Errors, Reading CBS.log


    --------------
    Background
    -------------------
    I deleted a number of the APPS Microsoft installed (and NOT wanted) when I upgraded from Win-7 to Win-10.
    After this I noticed a few issues such as:
    1) UTube progressive bar slider on videos does not show.
    2) Firefox Font icons for forum posting does Not work in some forums (this forum is OK and this may be unrelated)
    3) Controls are hidden when dragging in Visual Studio.

    Went ahead an ran SFC /scannow and received "cannot fix certain errors" or something similar.

    ---------------
    Question
    ---------------
    Looked at the CBS.log, but because of length and detail need some advice on how best to identify
    the particular problems within the log?

    I deleted a number of the APPS Microsoft installed
    - deleted (how?) or uninstalled?

    Do you use disk imaging routinely as tenforums members so often advise? If so, restore your PC to a precious recent good state using a disk image you have created (Macrium reflect - free/paid + large enough external storage for image files).

    Imaging means you have a second chance if you mess up, your PC becomes unusable, your system disk fails....by restoring any imaged disk or partition.

    As a routine check, run this from an admin command prompt:
    chkdsk c: /scan

    If ok, proceed...

    SFC failures: try this tool in post #2
    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk
    SFC Scannow and Dism RestoreHealth - Image Health - Repair Corrupt Files Here is a program to help users with corrupt windows files..

    This program will run System File Checker and DISM commands to repair an online Windows image
    and will also look for the setup media to use as a repair source

    Otherwise, you can perform an in-place upgrade repair install which keeps all progs and data (tutorial available: you need an iso of the same build as you have installed (not stated, I note, despite the forum prompt).

    A lot more besides SFC is recorded in CBS.log. See Option Five in this tutorial to see just the SFC scan results.

    dalchina: Thanks for responding.

    deleted (how?) or uninstalled?
    Using Windows Powershell. For Example:
    PowerShell as administrator > Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.YourPhone -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage

    Re: Backup
    I have a clone if needed.
    However would like to learn a bit about Microsoft log troubleshooting.
    The CBS.log one would think would at least have a marker (such as ERROR or WARNING) to narrow down what lines.

    Re Other Suggestions
    Noted

    Have one unless Microsoft did an Upgrade in the interim. Know versions are the same, Build ?.
    QUESTION1: What happens if they are NOT the same ??
    QUESTION2: Do you mean an iso or a bootable (flash or CD) with the same version ?

    Did you note the staged tool I cited that is aimed to help where there are SFC failures.

    Have one unless Microsoft did an Upgrade in the interim. Know versions are the same, Build ?.
    QUESTION1: What happens if they are NOT the same ??
    QUESTION2: Do you mean an iso or a bootable (flash or CD) with the same version ?
    a. You can find your current build, as was prompted when you wrote your post, by e.g.
    Win key + r, winver
    or
    Settings, About

    b. if the iso you use is for an older build or different base language you can get a somewhat unhelpful message.
    c. if it's the same, your Windows reverts to that build- full replacement of files exactly as with an upgrade. (Hint- the name).
    d. if it's a later build, that's an upgrade (feature update).

    You can use as source either
    a. A mounted iso file (rt click, mount- unless the iso association has been changed).
    or
    b. a bootable flash drive - which you do not boot from.


    You log in and run setup.exe.

    Heidoc iso downloader (just search for it)

    Windows 10 has changed from a default 30 day to a 10 day rollback period.

    If you did not have a backup image this may be an option is Windows RE.
    Another option may be system restore.

    There are quick checks for CBS logs and often problems can be fixed by running DISM commands.

    Windows 7 didn't have the DISM option whereas Windows 10 does.
    If there are problems with the component store too then you can perform an in place upgrade repair.

    1) Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:
    2) sfc /scannow
    3) dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
    4) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    5) sfc /scannow
    6) chkdsk /scan

    7) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread
