    Hello people,
    I have had a problem for months now, that sometimes data wouldn't copy or be deleted if they had anything to do with installing before. For example, if a program autoupdates itself and downloads his new .exe, then it might be unable to delete the old one, and the update failed.

    This has become more of a problem recently, so through some research I found this solution:
    ...where I am positive that it will work. (read it elsewhere too + alot of positive replies from people who described the exact same symptoms)

    My problem is now, that this service is nowhere to be found on my computer. It might have been deleted by some virus-scan months ago (so no recovery points) when the problems suddenly arised.

    I tried to find ways to manually get back a service, but wasn't that lucky. ..So what could I do?

    You may find a system file check helps - try running command prompt as administrator and the executing this command:

    sfc /scannow

    I did. The File Uploader here is telling me that the *.log file is invalid for him..., so here is an external link: Zippyshare.com - CBS.log

    Thank you, by the way.

    Nothing at all. The program just ends in the moment it reaches 100%. I even had to search for the log to get it.
