Running a Dell Studio 1555-win 7 Pro 64b- intermittant lockups-no cbs log

This laptop has some boot issues about once every week or so and also locks up. I ran the usual virus and malware scans with very few results. I did a chkdsk /r and it found no problem. I then ran sfc /scannow and this is the message I received: "Windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some"
It referred me to a cbs log in the Windows directory but I could not locate it. I made sure hidden files were being shown in control panel.
Any help is appreciated...

The log is usually located at C:\windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log

Run a Command Prompt as an Administrator and try the following:

SET WINDOWS_TRACING_LOGFILE=C:\CBS.log
sfc /scannow

Now see if the C:\CBS.log file exists.

I opened the cbs file after running the scan and the only thing in the folder were 5 files titled CbsPersist followed by a date and more numbers.
