"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Maybe this will help.

i run Windows 8.1 and ran System File Checker (sfc /scannow) from a administrator command prompt and it found
and could not fix some corrupt system files so i ran this tool from a administrator command prompt it's called
Deployment Image Servicing and Management Tool and it fixed the corrupt files
from a administrator command prompt i ran both of these commands notice there is a space between the forword slashes
1.dism /online /cleanup-image /checkhealth
after i ran
2.dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
the restorehealth command can take 20min or more to run do not stop it let it finish
then i ran sfc /scannow again and no more corrupt system files
What is the issue you're looking to fix? The CBS.LOG is a standard log file and is part of the Windows Resource Protection. You're going to have one regardless of whether your PC has issues or not.

If you're having issues with corrupt system files, running System File checker may help:

The problem may be with Windows Update. You can run the System Update Readiness Tool, or CheckSUR

BTW, the "CBS" in CBS.log stands for Component Based Servicing
