    SFC Scannow doesn't seem to fix anything.

    So this is around my fourth try of running /sfc scannow, and after I reboot to 'fix' the problems, I run another scan and the CBS.log file is literally the same same and it seems as if /sfc scannow has done NOTHING. Any help is appreciated.

    Heres my log file, could one of you smart people go through it and tell me if its smarter for me just to install rather than to try and fix manually(I've already tried a upgrade install).

    Hello ExcessiveNerve,

    From the blue Note box under step 6 in Option One of the tutorial below, you could run the Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth command to repair any component store corruption, restart the PC afterwards, and try the sfc /scannow command again to fix the files.

    Hope this helps,
