The CBS.log file is located in the C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder.

    I typed in what you gave me in the search box on the start tab and I got nothing. I typed it in command prompt and still I got nothing. In both places I was told that there was no such file. If there is any place Else to try, I don't know about it. Then there is a lot I don't know about computers.

      I must first say thank you for your time and patients. I did as you showed and didn't come with the same thing. What I got was this.

      CBS.bld                                   file BLD                size 2KB                date      11/02/06

      CBS                                        file text                 size 11318KB        date      09/08/08

      CBS persist                            file text                  size 52070KB        date      08/08/08

      If I double click on eather text files I get access denied. What next?

      You're doing fine. You're confused, because of stupid Micro$oft.
      In Windows Explorer, go Tools>Folder Options>View tab, and remove checkmark from: "Hide extension for known file types".
      Then, instead of "CBS", you'll see "CBS.log " file.
      Open it with a Notepad.

        I went to start butten clicked on explore and couldn't find tools. I typed in tools and got nothing. What am I doing wrong? Isn't windows explorer just the tree view of the software and hardware?

          Broni is referring to the menu bar, not an item you'll find in the treeview.

          I'd provide a screenshot, but I'd just end up confusing matters since I'm no using Vista.
          I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

            Well now I don't feel so foolish, I don't have that tool bar. No [junk] it isn't there.

                Remove the "s" word in your last reply.

                You can toggle the tool bar with the ALT key.
                If you don't have time to do it right
                                ...when will you have time to do it over?

                Another crap from Micro$oft. I have no idea why it's hidden by default.
                Click Organize>Layout, checkmark "Menu bar".
                ... and, as drmsucks said, watch your mouth.

                I did remove it.
