    It finished and it said it has corrected the sytem but in the next boot i get:

    C:\Windows\system32>Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth


    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 6.2.9200.16384




    Error: 11


    You cannot service a running 64-bit operating system with a 32-bit version of DI
    SM.
    Please use the version of DISM that corresponds to your computer's architecture.




    The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log


    C:\Windows\system32>

    and if i:

    C:\Windows\system32>sfc /scannow


    Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service.

    I have a 64 bit computer & it works for me.
    I don't know why it told you what it did.

    Were you using your browser while it was running ?

    If so, try it with it shut down.
    Close any open applications.
    Don't do anything until it finishes.

    I've got Classic Shell & a Start button.
    That should have nothing to do with it.

    By the way, I just ran sfc & it actually fixed something.
    It's never done that before:

    Click image for larger version

    Strange.

    I don't know either.
    Maybe a reboot would help.
    Maybe someone else will pitch in & offer advice.
    I hope so.

    The SFC /scannow function worked for me after asking me to schedule it for next restart, but crashes my computer at 20% (ALWAYS) after 2-4 hours.

    It sucks, and I can only use safe mode right now due to me bluescreening from registry errors.

    Unless someone has a better idea, I would suggest restoring your OS.
    or reinstalling it totally.

    When it is running good again I suggest using Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download to backup your system.
