Hi shelaza. The CBS.log, is typically here, C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
It opens in Notepad, or other word processor.

Here is how you analyse it,

Have you got a Restore point available from before the problem started ?

Also you can try this,
Delete the cbs.log file
Open a Command Prompt (as Administrator), and run the command,
sfc /scannow

Open C:\$RECYCLE.BIN, and manually delete the S-1-5-21-993213732-305802071-2045075947-1000 folder.

Don't search for it, go directly there in Windows Explorer. It is a hidden, system folder. Do you have those set to show ?

Open a Command Prompt (as Administrator), and run the command,

yes. I wrote it 4 posts from the top. Once the sfc scan is finished, post what it says in the last few lines.
