    Need help with corrupt files

    I'm in the wrong place. I have no BSOD issues, just a bunch of other stuff. Looking for a better place ... corrupt files.

    I can't tell what your problem is from your post but sfc /scannow (from admin command prompt) is the usual first check.

    Sorry I wasn't clear. SOLVED!


    Thanks for your response. I'm sorry I wasn't clear . I wasn't expecting one. Next time I'll close the thread to be sure it's ignored.

    I solved my problem. I was trying to be sure I had a clean disk for a clean Win 10 install. I kept getting corrupt file notices and errors (I don't remember which ones) so I solved errors and went to Event Viewer. Then I went through Dism, sfc /scannow, chkdsk,and sfc. And I went back to Event Viewer. I also ran tests from Seagate regularly to see if there was any improvement and decided that test would be my definitive answer (it's a Seagate drive). I just stuck with it until it was clean and made my almost perfect clean install on a clean drive. Hallelujah baby! At least I'm up and running.

    Now I'm off to Cortana discussions to solve that problem.

    BTW, I did have the BSOD, I just didn't recognize it. I never expected Windows to put a frowny face on BSOD!

    I love this place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks again,
