    OK, then what exactly did it repaired ?
    Also, I am now looking in the Event Viewer and I have an error that appeared after sfc reported that everything is good :

    The Open Procedure for service "BITS" in DLL "C:\Windows\System32\bitsperf.dll" failed. Performance data for this service will not be available. The first four bytes (DWORD) of the Data section contains the error code. Event ID is 1008.

    As I remember BITS is related to the Windows Updates and.... Windows Updates does not work anymore...

    Will update after I manage to fix this also.

    @David Bailey
    It is set to manual and "running" atm. Anyway, WU works after a restart, not a single error atm.
    I also ran a new sfc scan just to see if it reports anything new, again it said everything is OK.

    @JustATest
    So just to get this, the only thing that was broken was the information/description/list database ? The files were actually OK ?

    Thanks.

    missing files replaced or ignored?

    Sorry, I do not understand your question.

    You had a ton of missing files; yes? After the DISM fix, have all missing files actually been restored (numCorruptions = 0) or did DISM just set a flag to ignore those files (via fix metadata) and now your subsequent sfc /scannow run simply ignores those file checks; thereby, fixing a problem you actually never had?

    There is no way those files were actually missing. If you look at the files, the entire Windows is there. All the drivers are in the list, 194, acpi, video drivers and the list goes on. The system would not start/load without these drivers and system files. I also checked (random) some of the names I do not know and they do exist.
    I guess the question remains... what did it actually repaired ? The repair function ?

    That's exactly what I was trying to get at by doing my comprehensive testing; however, when it seemed like you were happy that your problem was fixed (and that appeared to be the end of it), I simply aborted my testing. Anyway, my best guess would be that it actually fixed nothing in your case; however, since you didn't verify if the files were actually there after the first run, we may have no way of telling unless you take the time to look at the timestamps of a few of the originally reported missing files and see if they were recreated, coincident to the time of the DISM run. I guess the moral of your story confirms (for me at least). If it ain't borke, don't try to fix it. BTW, I agree with your opening statements and your last statement and I would advise everyone to only run sfc /scannow if a specific need arises. If everything is fine, just leave it alone. Good luck.
