SFC /SCANNOW to Repair Windows 7 Files
Windows 7 has a build-in repair system called “System File Checker” If the Windows Resource Protection finds corrupted in System files then the Windows would start to act weird with strange errors and strange behaviors. In case if you find such behavior or someone suggested to run SFC /SCANNOW you could follow this article. I will walk you through the process.
Click on the Start Menu and under search type in “CMD”
Right Click on “CMD” and click on Run as administrator.
Note: This is a very important step to elevate Command prompt because UAC would be restricting administration access. Make sure you’re login as administrator or type in administrator’s credentials.
Type in SFC /SCANNOW and press Enter
Then process might take a while to complete once it’s complete it produces a log with information where it repaired the corruption or not.
In command prompt type in findstr /C:”[SR] Cannot repair member file” %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >c:\sfcreport.txt
