    [8.1Upd3 x86] SFC errors on "windows Journal.lnk".

    I have identical issue as another post in this forum, but did not want to use script file provided as the warning advised not to.

    I have run sfc /scannow several times (rebooting between each). I have rebuilt repository with DISM from the original 8.1 install DVD. Finally running the SFCfix several times not no avail. The result always being:

    CORRUPT: C:\WINDOWS\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-tabletpc-journal_31bf3856ad364e35_6.3.9600.18295_none_ac474dc0c0393686\Windows Journal.lnk

    I am not even sure I should be concerned as I would never use tablepc-journal.exe, but am concerned with error. I am attaching output from SFCfix, and the compression CBS logs

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>copy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log %userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt
    The syntax of the command is incorrect.

    looked fine to me but manually copied file. I had to zip it to attach as was too large

    Re: [8.1Upd3 x86] SFC errors on "windows Journal.lnk".

    windows Journal.lnk corruption now appears permanently fixed..thank you. However, sfc /scannow repeatedly (tried 3 more times) terminates with following


    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired
    them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For
    example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently not
    supported in offline servicing scenarios.

    The file allows detected as corrupt, and sfc says it fixed it is C:\WINDOWS\System32\invagent.dll. Do I need to be concerned? I attached zipped cbs.log (cbstxt.zip)
