    I am having this really weird problem of system file corruption.The problem isn't apparent in normal circumstances but when I run a sfc scan it always finds corrupt files and successfully repairs them but upon reboot when I re-run the sfc scan it again finds corrupt files and again repairs them and it goes on.:(

    Any suggestions?

    I suggest running chkdsk c: /r (if you haven't done so already) and if you have been using a reg-cleaner, I would advise against that practice.

    Are you experiencing any boot/runtime/shutdown problems (other than an sfc scannow indicating corruption)?

    No, nothing is apparent in general use of the computer, only sfc scannow indicates the corruption.

    Here is the CBS log-

    Then what prompted you to run SFC in the first place? ...which version of Windows are you running?

    I occasionally run the sfc utility just out of curiosity to see if something is wrong.

    I am on Windows 7 x86.

    As you can see, the issue is with ver.dll which (imho) is no big deal as it's just used for version checking. If it were my issue and (other than sfc's report) all was functioning well I'd ignore it.

    If you just can't ignore it and you have an installation disk, you can extract a fresh copy of ver.dll from it. Otherwise you can google for a copy (matching your OS) and download it.

    ...afterthought: you could try running sfc /scannow from safemode.

    It may to turn out to be something similar to what happens in the Vista sfc where the .cbs log reports settings.ini errors in relation to Windows Sidebar as being unrepairable.

    Apparently it's an error in the log.
