It tells you what happened when you ran SFC. You should delete CBS.log before running SFC if you plan on using it to track down the problems, so you don't have to wade through previous SFC scans. You can't open CBS.log directly, but you can make a copy of it and open the copy. Open the copy and search (edit->find) for ... "repairing" until you get to something like ... repairing 3 components ... where 3 could be a different number depending on the number of components that SFC found needed repairing. The following text will tell you which components SFC could not fix. I would need to see the log to tell you anymore.
