    Windows 8.1

    I've already reinstalled Windows 8. Working on installing 8.1 as we speak. Thanks for the recommendation though.

    You're welcome. After the first set of commands(SFC & DISM) it should have looked like the below picture that contains false positives because of the windows update to do with telemetry for the Win10 upgrade.

    Just for future reference, if you wish, here is a mini tut I have created, so I just have to copy & paste to help people.- It's good for Win8 & Win10:

    You can try fixing the files by copy & pasting in an Admin
    Command Prompt:

    Dism.exe/online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup&sfc/scannow&Dism/Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth&sfc/scannow&pause

    And let it run through then
    reboot and run it again to check if it cleaned everything. It
    may take a while depending on your hardware(HDD or SSD), and it may
    appear to freeze at 20% on the third part, just be patient and
    let it run out.

    : Only 2 false positives will show up(this is the result of the GWX software as Windows has nothing from the original OS software to compare it toŽ) and they are(in red):

    his update enables the Diagnostics Tracking Service in Windows 8.1,Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1), and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. This tracking service collects data about functional issues in Windows.

    This update contains the following two manifests that are occasionally updated by the Diagnostic Tracking Service

    • telemetry.ASM-WindowsDefault.json

    The two files are marked as static files in the update. When an advanced user runs the System File Checker Tool (sfc.exe), the files are unintentionally flagged as corrupted. There is no impact or corruption on a device that is running this update, and this issue will be fixed in a later service update.
