    Can't uncorrupt component store


    I have a linx tablet running windows 8.1 and when I try to install net framework 3.5 it says the component store is corrupted and when I try to fix it with dism it freezes at 40% (its stayed at 40%) for a few hours. I have also fixing from an iso (windows 8.1 enterprise evaluation from Microsoft website) and it says cannot open source and when trying to install net framework from an exe file it says an app on your PC needs the following feature (needs net framework to install net framework)

    Try copy & pasting the following in an Admin command prompt:

    fsutil resource setautoreset true c:\&fsutil usn deletejournal /d /n c:&Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup&&sfc /scannow&Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth&sfc /scannow&Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase&pause


    Then reboot

    That command above was to clean up the corruption. To make sure it's repaired run:
    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup&sfc/scannow&Dism/Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth&sfc/scannow&pause


    For .NET 3.5 installation, if you have Windows 8 install media or an ISO use this command:

    DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /LimitAccess /Source:X:\sources\sxs
    Where the Source:X is the drive letter for the Windows 8 install disk/media/iso

    Here is a link to the Microsoft Community I follow for .NET 3.5 installation(needed it for USB mobile broadband software). There seems to be no "One Fix" for it. Different people have had to use different ways to activate it. Maybe if you have time you could read it through and try a of them.
