    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.
