    Couldn't do this through update history as I'd cleared it. Attempting to uninstall it with the command wusa /uninstall /kb:3022345 /norestart says Update [...] is required by your computer and cannot be uninstalled
    I get the same message-

    I did manage to get my dism cmd to download needed files-

    In my sfc log the only 2 unfixable files are the 2 json files.
    Everything else is fixed.

    Windows 8.1

    Think I found a way to fix the file association issue, but still not sure what caused it. For some reason, a few installed programs aren't registered under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications. Adding keys manually for the 'broken' programs works, however a few working programs aren't registered either... Huh.

    Unfortunately I'm still having the same issue with folder views. Am I missing some obvious control panel sub-menu or a removed feature or something?

Folder Views
Hey guys hope all of you are still doing well. This may be a little unnecessary or stupid but those of you who like your stuff organised and perfect would understand. When you have music in a folder, usually the folder picture would be that of the album art of the music in the folder or just the...
