    SFC /Scannow

    Have run sfc /scannow and it shows that WRP found corrupt files but was unable
    to fix some some of them. Do these need to be fixed and how?
    Thanks

    From an elevated Command Prompt type

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    and hit Enter. It can take a while to run, but let it run until completion.
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    RPC is an integral part of Windows and having it fail is not a good sign.
    Can you post the DISM log?

    cheers, Paul

    You could run another sfc /scannow and then SFCFix.exe straight after and that will produce a smaller log and may even fix what the sfc /scannow was unable to.

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/sfcfix.html

    Instead of uploading such a large file as the DISM CBS, after the sfc /scannow enter this cmd -

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

    This will put an icon onto the desktop which when double clicked will open in Notepad, but you can right click on the icon and .zip it to upload and as this file will only list what has and hasn't been repaired, it will be much smaller than the DISM one.

    That attachment is fine.

    Did these problems manifest after installing KB3189866 ?

    Can you run another sfc /scannow now and then download/run SFCFix.exe from my link in Post#6 to see what that reports.

    You need to run another sfc /scannow before the SFCFix.exe as the CBS log is volatile.

    If SFCFix.exe reports irreparable files then uninstall KB3189866 or use your restore points if it won't uninstall and then run another sfc /scannow to see if it still reports corruption.

    As so much is being shown as corrupt in the store and if these steps don't resolve, then create an up to date Win 10 bootable media from https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/soft...load/windows10 and then do a repair install or you could run the Update now and reinstall Win 10 which won't affect your programs and files.

    Do you use Fax or XPS Viewer which you could remove from Devices and Printers which should remove those errors and have you considered using an alternative free antivirus program to Windows Defender ?

    Hi Sudo, I am not sure if these problems only manifested themselves after installing KB3189866. as
    I never ran sfc/scannow after the initial update to Windows 10 from windows 7.
    I do have Fax and Microsoft document writer on Devices and Printers.
    I will try a different free antivirus.
    Will give more info. just now.
    Thanks so far.

    Sudo this is what happens when I ran SFCFIX.
    I am not sure about the KB3189866 uninstall.

    My eyes were starting to blur reading all of the corruption in your first sfc txt, but the latest one looks similar.

    It's not a good sign that SFCFix.exe has crashed, but I've recently upgraded a Win 7 machine to Win 10 and I don't think I saw KB3189866 listed among the ensuing updates - although I could have been mistaken

    That KB has been referenced in the sfc txt that it would seem to be related.

    It's up to you if you want to take your machine back to pre-KB3189866 but for that amount of corruption should it not be responsible, then I would say that you are looking at either a repair install or a re-run of Upgrade now which will do the same - but something has caused that level of corruption of system files.

    Are there any repetitive errors in Event Viewer ?

    Sudo have attached some of the errors from event viewer to have alook at.
    Do I create the W10 bootable media after uninstalling KB3189866.
    If I uninstall this KB will my PC revert to W10 V1511?

    No, that KB came after the AU.

    Going back to before it was installed and running another sfc /scannow can eliminate it as the cause.

    If it hasn't been pulled then you should get it back through WUs.

    The latest ISO or the Upgrade now button will have the latest version which should include any major updates such as KB3189866.

    I get those DCOM 10016 errors every time I boot up and would seem to be endemic with Win 10 - I just ignore them as I haven't noticed any real adverse problems.

    The Print Service errors are probably related to the corruption reported in sfc.txt

    The Device Setup Manager could be a result of RPC failing to start ? - but the CAPI2 Event ID 513 will interfere with any system images you try to create, but is easily fixed by copying the command in the following article then pasting it to the Command Prompt (Admin) and should return as in the article.

    Just right click and drag your mouse over the whole of that cmd then right click and select Copy.

    http://justworks.ca/blog/fix-event-5...windows-backup

    That Side by Side error - can you click on that to see if it relates to Photo Galley etc. ?

    If it does then go Start - type appwiz.cpl and press enter.

    Scroll down to Windows Live Essentials - right click on it then click on Change then check the Repair button and let it do its thing.

    While you are doing that, I'll have a look through the rest of the errors but if going pre-KB doesn't resolve then I reckon the reinstall is the best option.

    ESENT ID 472 you can ignore.

    DNS Clents Events 1014 - I've come across that one before where this has resolved by going into Device Manager/View/Show hidden devices - expand Network adapters - right click on the Ethernet adapter - select Properties and under the Advanced tab, change Energy Efficient Ethernet to Disabled in the dropdown.

    Can't find a thing on that DbxSvc Event ID 270.

    EDIT - Forgot to add - for the AppMode-Runtime 69 - see if Windows key + r - type wsreset.exe and press enter sorts that one.

    That cmd resets the Store.
