    It would be very nice for people who find answers to their problems to share them with everybody else so that more people are helped.

    Hi all. The first thing I usually advise when having problems with broken apps is to perform the scannow command as linked in my first post. This is a nice feature of 8. It usually solves the problem.

    Wow, a lot of reply's I see... so I am not the only one.. I understand that I need to use scannow. But when I am at the step that I needs to fill in C:/ and D:/ I get confused. (my partitions names are C:/Jake and D:/ _OEMBP . So Maybe can someone explain how to use scannow from there..? Thnx in advance. Greetzzz!

    Assuming you are not dual booting, just 8 alone, you would need to scan C:/. That's the drive where 8 should be installed on. The D:/_OEMBP sounds like a Packard Bell (OEM) backup partition.

    Thanks man! That helps for me, the last question and then I will give it a try again, can you please say me the whole command I need to use after that step? To start the scan?

    Press keys Win+X Power (opens Users Tasks Menu) -> choose Command Prompt (Admin) -> type sfc /scannow -> Enter

    Please let us know how it goes.

    Hi man,
    Thank you, I tried to use scannow but unfortunatly without result. After scanning I get the following 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. Note that logging is currenty not supported in offline servicing scenarios.

    When I use the path to open the log, I get the alert: 'Access denied'
    Thankyou!

    I don't understand why it won't fix them, but hopefully we'll find out.

    A new layer of security in 8. You have to take ownership of the folder:

    Take Ownership of a File, Folder, Drive, or Registry Key in Windows 8
