Corrupt System Files, unable to repair

  1. I've been getting some BSODs recently on this Vista Ultimate x64 system, including "Bad_pool_caller" and "Memory_management" ones. Memtest came up with no errors, but when I ran sfc /scannow, I got this message:

    "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
    Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log"

    I've uploaded the BSOD minidumps, but the 31 MB CBS.log from C:\Windows\Logs\CBS is much too large to upload. Are there any things I should look for in the log?

    Is there any way to fix these corrupt files? Thanks in advance!

    Specs:
    CPU: Intel Duo E8400
    RAM: Corsair XMS2 4GB DDR2 800
    Mobo: ASUS Rampage Formula
    Graphics: x2 Radeon 4870
    Storage: x1 Western Digital WD6400AAKS 640GB
    PSU: Corsair 750W

    Edit: Just got another BSOD while posting. This is was titled "PFN_list_corrupt". Please help!

    Save your data to DVD's and run a full reinstall. We cannot read your logs in their current format.

    I used x64 Vista when it first came out and got those 2 errors alot. It was caused by the motherboard drivers. I had an nForce 4 board and the errors went away as soon as Nvidia came out with a new set of drivers. Are you using the newest drivers from Nvidias web site? Also make sure your motherboard is running the memory at the right settings.
