    Component Store corruption Win 8.1


    I am getting repeated Component store corruptions after any security updates.
    No metro apps will open yet an icon appears on the Taskbar.
    I have been able to repair it with DISM every time but that is beside the point.
    I want to know why!

    Have you run

    sfc /scannow

    after running

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    ???

    Done both of those - many times. The troubleshooter tells me there is a problem with the store components but doesn't fix it.
    I run SFC after I have done DISM and it comes back with no problems found. I would really like to know what is causing it - driving me up the wall.
