    Surprised had no other error messages with this service missing as it is needed for Windows updates also.

    Well I think that disk check ruined it more, I can't event save screen shots now.

    And whenever I click on system restore, an error pops up that says..
    [System Restore]
    The disk Local Disk (C has errors.
    Windows has detected file system corruption on Local Disk (C. You must check the disk for errors before it can be restored.

    Can't think that chkdsk would ruin a drive. I would just do a Windows 8.1 refresh. If that does not work try reset, but will loose all that was put on after install of Windows 8.1.

    Just follow the tutorial. Seems have no choice now.

    Your Welcome. As said i believed now this was your only option, to reset. Glad your resolved, any further issue, come back to thread.

    Once you know all is working well, make a system restore point, do not wait too long.
    Try SFC again also when you get a chance.
