    System protection


    Yesterday I, as always before, was going to do monthly Macrium Reflect system backup. As per usual I did all the AV, HW and software checks, made sure windows and SW was up to date, absolutely everything works as good as ever. At the end of those checks I did sfc /scannow but would not go past 58%. Dism also got stuck at some 20% on or offline, in safe mode too.
    All disks are in perfect shape and so are drivers etc.
    Before I do something radical like restoring last moth's Macrium backup or doing windows repair I would like to see if there's something less radical to troubleshoot this problem.
    I still have W10 on another disk to fall back to if necessary so in no way I could be left without OS on this computer. Willing to try anything. Any ideas ?

    Hi Mike,
    Personally I don't have a problem with this but some people do with:
    The Scoop On KB 3022345 System File Corruption
    You might want to uninstall this update if installed.

    I found it but can't uninstall because I did disk cleanup beforehand. Don't think even System Restore would bring it back.

    Rats, can't even install it again, "Not applicable" it said probably because it's already installed.
