    SFC/Scannow


    I seen on this forum that it was a good idea to run an SFC now and again,So I decided to give it a run.
    The results I had was as per image,But I didn't understand what the results were it noted that there were some corrupt files.
    How can I get over this issue Please.Windows 8.1 Acer laptop.

    Thanks.

    From Admin command prompt, try: dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    then re-run sfc /scannow =====> might need to run multiple times until you get: Windows did not find any integrity violation.

    Yes.

    Maybe an hour to run.

    It hangs on 20% for a long time.

    or you could just try it.

    Running it against Windows 7 on an SSD will be fine.
