    how to repair corrupt files


    hello been having problems with my pc. what happened is i was installing a update kb3000850 and it took for ever to download then it started to install then would not do anything for hours so i tried to cancel the install but it would not cancel.tried all sorts then got mad and switched of my pc when it started back up it was working. but i like to check things so i did scf /scannow in command prompt. keeps finding corrupt files tried loads of times. then i have tried the Dism prompt and still not fixed.now my question is if i use the windows refresh button will that leave all my programs and games alone and not delete them thanks in advance. i know that i windows 7 you could just press a button on start up and insert disk and it would repair corrupt files

    Windows 8.1.1 Pro with Media Center


    If you want to, run this batch file---

    It runs 2 dism versions & sfc.

    dism.bat

    After Unblocking it, right click it & Run as administrator.
    It takes about 2 hours or so to finish.
