    Windows X key + X, select Command Prompt (Admin)
    Type: sfc /scannow

    If it is unable to correct all corrupt system files, type:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Then the sfc command again,

    These processes will take a while to run, let them run.

    Also, if you get an error message from dism, try this cmd & dism again.

    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup

    I've had corrupt/missing system files from scannow for months that couldn't be repaired. This cmd fixed them all, about 2 hrs runtime, and a new scan comes up clean !!! Thanks so much
