I am using a windows 32-bit home basic, it was pre-installed in my PC so I don't have the CD of it but it has a recovery files on my PC.

Can you please help  me to resolve this? if re-installing the vista, should I install it fresh or repair only.... Remember I DON'T HAVE THE CD OF IT, IT WAS PRE-INSTALLED.

Hello kwamectc,

          To determine which files could not be repaired by the System File Checker tool, follow these steps:
  1. Open an elevated command prompt.
  2. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    findstr /C:"[SR] Cannot repair member file" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >sfcdetails.txt
    Note The Sfcdetails.txt file contains details from every time that the System File Checker tool has been run on the computer. The file includes information about files that were not repaired by the System File Checker tool. Verify the date and time entries to determine the problem files that were found the last time that you ran the System File Checker tool.
  3. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    edit sfcdetails.txt
    The Sfcdetails.txt file uses the following format:
    Date/Time SFC detail









    To fix/replace follow steps below:
  1. At an elevated command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    takeown /f Path_And_File_Name
    For example, type takeown /f E:\windows\system32\jscript.dll.
  2. Type the following command, and then press ENTER to grant administrators full access to the file:
    icacls Path_And_File_Name /GRANT ADMINISTRATORS:F
    For example, type icacls E:\windows\system32\jscript.dll /grant administrators:F.
  3. Type the following command to replace the file with a known good copy of the file:
    Copy Path_And_File_Name_Of_Source_File Path_And_File_Name_Of_Destination
    For example, type copy E:\temp\jscript.dll E:\windows\system32\jscript.dll.



Since you have already did a scan find the file manually and replace it with the correct one. You can copy and post your log here too. Let us know either way if you need further assistance. Make it a great day!
