    Well, there are some 3rd party utilities that tout themselves as able to locate, download & update old DLLs, missing DLLs, etc. Many places do not recommend such utilities. If you decide to try one or more, do so cautiously, carefully, after having made OS partition images onto external media.

    In an admin cmd prompt enter

    findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"

    and that will put an icon onto the desktop which when double clicked will open the CBS Log in Notepad which you can copy & paste.

    This produces an edited version where it just shows the files that it was and wasn't able to repair.

    It would seem that KB3000850 was an important update so uninstalling it would be unwise, whereas I've never known the reason behind KB3068708 unless it has something to do with upgrading to Win 10, as it's predecessor KB3022345 was causing sfc /scannow to incorrectly report Diagnostic Tracking Service errors.

    I'm not sure about the other file that is says it is unable to repair but as it's in close proximity to the Telemetry error, it could be related as is the one for KB3000850.

    SFCFix.exe may be able to do something with those errors, but open a Command Prompt (Admin) and enter chkdsk /f to see if that also reports errors - this is the cmd that you probably used in XP.

    Should you have forgotten how to view its report, open Event Viewer and when it has read the logs, expand Windows Logs, click on the name Application - Action - Find and in the Find box type chkdsk or wininit and press enter - Cancel the Find box and then read the report in the scrollable window.

    That should hopefully report nothing wrong with the volume which will confirm that the sfc errors were generated by those KBs.

    I've recently come across where the SFCFix tool prompted for the install disk when run in Win 8.1

    If you don't have one and are prompted, there's a section in this article that shows you how to download the ISO and create a bootable disk. https://www.winhelp.us/non-destructi...8-and-8-1.html

    This is where I am at this morning (text-file enclosed). Win10 update fail and noticed couldn't uninstall couple things is what started this all. This laptop only year old and having more trouble than my old WinXPDesktop ever did. And not being a tech does not help.

    Well that says it ran the Dism repair tool but open a Command Prompt (Admin) and enter -

    dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth to see what that reports and then try dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth if /scanhealth says it's repairable.

    After that run another sfc /scannow to see if it still reports files it is unable to repair.

    EDIT - If sfc /scannow still reports problems with KB3000850 then I think you should uninstall and then reinstall it.

    It's about 750MB and I think it could be what was referred to as Win 8.1.1 which was required to receive further updates and if that is buggy, then that could be the route of your problems.
