DISM error reported but no obvious side-effects noticed.

    DISM error reported but no obvious side-effects noticed.

    To be honest, I'm not really certain if I have a problem or not but, I'm just curious more than anything else. Like many on here, I couldn't get the KB2919355 update to install but I resolved it by deleting the contents of C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download. Everything is working fine and I'm receiving all the new released updates - hence the topic title no obvious side-effects noticed.

    But (isn't there always a but), DISM is still reporting errors. Scanhealth reports that the errors are repairable but restore helath fails with error 0x800f081f. SFC/Scannow reports no errors.

    The strange thing is that I've looked at the log file and I can see no apparent errors reported. I've posted an extract below from one of the sections which shows (I think) that everything is fine and dandy.

    Operation: Detect and Repair
    Operation result: 0x0
    Last Successful Step: Entire operation completes.
    Total Detected Corruption: 0
    CBS Manifest Corruption: 0
    CBS Metadata Corruption: 0
    CSI Manifest Corruption: 0
    CSI Metadata Corruption: 0
    CSI Payload Corruption: 0
    Total Repaired Corruption: 0
    CBS Manifest Repaired: 0
    CSI Manifest Repaired: 0
    CSI Payload Repaired: 0
    CSI Store Metadata refreshed: True

    The only thing that sticks out is a warning which appears a number of times:
    2014-05-18 22:12:33, Warning DISM DISM Provider Store: PID=5308 TID=7148 Failed to Load the provider: C:\Users\Steve\AppData\Local\Temp\0E0BB710-76C3-48A5-A9A0-CF74C1A27460\PEProvider.dll. - CDISMProviderStore::Internal_GetProvider(hr:0x8007007e)

    So in summary, I can't be certain that I have any corruption problems and with a fully updated syatem everthing appears to be as it should be.

    To satisfy my curiousity, is there any logical explanation for this and am I missing something obvious

    Barney, from what I understand, if SFC /scannow is not showing any integrity violations, you're ok. I have a similar problem, in that DISM says errors are repairable, but can not find the source files. Like you, my log shows no corruption. I've been told by several forum members, not to be concerned about it. (But I still don't like it) I have this situation on both a laptop (only recently started doing this) and a desktop, so it evidently is common. I know this isn't an answer to your problem, but hope it relieves your concerns a little.
