    sfc /scannow is showing the error message in win8.1 ?


    hello ,
    i have win8.1 and sfc /scannow i ran as admin and it gave me this msg

    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log.

    the system file repair changes will take effect after the next reboot .

    AFter this msg i did reboot (it updated and rebooted twice )and ran sfc /scannow again it gave me the same msg. its happening after win8.1 update which i did two days back. Also i have disabled turned off windows system restore. i tried even dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth. but then again it gave me the same msg: the system file repair changes will take effect after the next reboot .

    is there any way i can set it right ?

    Note : please dont tell me to do refresh as i have games installed runing half the way

    Run this batch file---

    dism.bat

    Download it & right click it & choose Properties & Unblock it & then right click it & choose Run as administrator.
    It takes abot 2 hours to finish.
    Post back with results.

    If dism fails then something is wrong.
    A refresh would be advisable.
    Or a restore.
    I know that is not what you want to hear.
