    It means there is corruption in the Windows core store files, ie dll's that run basic functions. Your computer can seemingly be running fine but a corruption can cause anything to crash at anytime.

    Run the sfc /scannow at least twice and see if it still reports unrepaired corruption. If still corruption, then run the DISM command: Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    PS: Of course, you need to be connected to internet when you run it.

    Thanks, it worked and sfc says there is no corruption. I had 2 HDD that were clones and all 3 had to be scanned.

sfc scannow can't fix all the files in Performance & Maintenance
Hello guys! I just used sfc scannow and it said that some files were unabled to be fixed. I have attached the logs. Can anyone help me fix them? Right now I can't open any metro tiles, so :cry:
