    Found corrupt files but was unable to fix them


    I have been trying to fix this issue for hours. This morning i got a "blue screen of death" and my pac said "your pc has ran into some problems". It then fixed everything and all was fine. I then typed "sfc / scannow" in command prompt and come up with the message "windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them windows 8".

    Windows 8.1 being used.

    What do i do? thanks

    Suggest you run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Then run sfc /scannow again.

    If you are no longer getting the BSOD and your system is working OK, then it is.
