It looks like that error, 0x800f0906, has something to do with .NET 3.5. I am going to reinstall .NET 3.5 and re-run the tool.

As a point of note, this person had the same problem (exact same log issue I'm seeing) here: .NET framework 3.5 asennus ei onnistu - Microsoft Community
English Translation: https://translate.google.com/transl...-onnistu/b3de354a-2776-47a0-9b38-a5c8e0fea052

I have rebooted, ran through reinstalling .NET 3.5, and now running SFC.EXE /SCANNOW and the other Dsim utilities again. I have also scheduled `chkdsk c: /r` to be run on my next boot. As a point of note, I have run SFC utility with /verifyonly before and it said everything was verified and correct. Reference post earlier: http://www.eightforums.com/bsod-cra...c_timeout_exceeded-post474474.html#post474474

I am also running the command `Dism /Online /Cleanup-image /StartComponentCleanup` from the reference material above that said fixed their problem.

Code:
C:\WINDOWS\system32>SFC.EXE /SCANNOW


Beginning system scan.  This process will take some time.


Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Anyone have ideas on how to fix this?

I am going to reboot, run `CHKDSK c: /scannow` on reboot and report back. If anyone has any ideas, let me know.

After all reboots, I ran SFC.EXE /SCANNOW one last time for fun:

Code:
C:\WINDOWS\system32>SFC.EXE /SCANNOW


Beginning system scan.  This process will take some time.

I've read through all the attached logs and researched some of the error codes.
All of them seem to point to a non-fatal OS corruption (in one case the SxS directories weren't properly enumerated)

What media did you use to load this copy of Windows, and where did you get the files/iso's from?

In most cases like this, I'd next recommend a Refresh of the OS - to see if that can fix it.
If not,then I'd suggest a Reset (but in this case I'd suggest a reinstall from different installation media).

EDIT: But this is sort of "throwing the baby out with the bath water". We're fixing errors that you'd never know about unless you ran our commands, then you're wiping out the OS (and all your stuff) because of that.

I'd suggest that we see if the BSOD problem has stopped BEFORE Refreshing/Resetting the system.
Good luck!

Interesting. I took a lot of care installing this time and saw no errors. It's incredibly odd how Windows fails so gracefully without any errors, and yet so much could be wrong with my installation.

What media did you use to load this copy of Windows, and where did you get the files/iso's from?
I used Microsoft's own image creation tool to write it to a SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0 64gb drive.

In most cases like this, I'd next recommend a Refresh of the OS - to see if that can fix it.
If not,then I'd suggest a Reset (but in this case I'd suggest a reinstall from different installation media).

EDIT: But this is sort of "throwing the baby out with the bath water". We're fixing errors that you'd never know about unless you ran our commands, then you're wiping out the OS (and all your stuff) because of that.

Good luck!
Just a quick question on terminology so I know what I'm getting in to:

Refresh vs. Reset, what is the difference? I accidentally did one of the two of those once and 1/2 or more of my programs missing, and a ton of problems resulted from that when I had to work that same day. :) Needless to say, I've moved to a much more modular setup now that can be synced rather than installed to be ready to work at any location or computer.

Give me a weekend and I can reinstall if needed. Just know that is exactly what I did about 2-5 months ago (time files!) to fix this BSoD problem, and yet it still is persisting. It was using a completely different CD Key (I hate Window's licensing, was going to force me to install Win7, upgrade to Win8, so instead I bought a new key) and this was the first time I've used Microsoft's USB image to install (different media than the original install).

As a note: The CEntrance people gave me a beta driver which I've installed as of last night.

Hi Slickplaid ^_^,

A Refresh of the Windows Operating System means that your personal files would be kept but certain things like Apps would be removed. Settings are also reset.

A Reset of the Windows Operating System means that nothing would be stored on the system and Windows would be installed from scratch.

Let us know how it goes ^_^

Windows is an incredibly robust, fault-tolerant OS that will keep on running long after you expect it to fail.

From what you've related here, I don't think that there's a significant problem with the OS at this point.
And, you've done the refresh and the reinstall - yet the problem still persists.

You may want to plan for a Refresh and a Reset in the near future - but you're still testing the other things that we and the CEntrance people have suggested, so I'd hold off for now.

Where did you get the ISO file that you used to create the USB installation drive?
You've used different keys to install - have you used a different ISO file to install (on the times that you reinstalled to try and fix the BSOD issue)?
The point here is trying to rule out the installation media/process as being to blame.

Where did you get this DISM command? Have you done any work on the WinSxS folder?
Dism /Online /Cleanup-image /StartComponentCleanup
Another thing that I noted was that the chkdsk tool made corrections to the file system.
Try running it again and see if the tool makes further corrections. If it does, then we can suspect that something is corrupting the file system - and then can work on fixing that.

Sounds good. Sometimes there can be a week or so that goes by without any issues and then constant, almost daily (or even multiple times per day) BSoDs. This most recent stint has been BSoD free for about 4 days.

Where did you get the ISO file that you used to create the USB installation drive?
You've used different keys to install - have you used a different ISO file to install (on the times that you reinstalled to try and fix the BSOD issue)?
The point here is trying to rule out the installation media/process as being to blame.
The ISO was downloaded direct from Microsoft after purchasing the CD-Key online through their online store. I used the Microsoft "Media Creation Tool" tool.

Create installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help

Where did you get this DISM command? Have you done any work on the WinSxS folder?
I got it from a technet article. I do not recall the exact link.
I have not done anything directly to the WinSxS folder, nor have I read any information on that.

Another thing that I noted was that the chkdsk tool made corrections to the file system.
Try running it again and see if the tool makes further corrections. If it does, then we can suspect that something is corrupting the file system - and then can work on fixing that.
I will run it tonight and report back.

Windows has finished checking your disk.
Please wait while your computer restarts.
Edit: If I run a reset this coming weekend, would that be good to do? Obviously it would hinder any diagnostics we might find in the future, but I'm worried if the Windows setup files are corrupted or messed up some how, would a reset just put the corrupted files back and we're back at square one?

I guess my questiion is: Should I reinstall using a fresh download or attempt a reset? Which is recommended?

What is my next course of action moving forward to see if we can't mitigate a reset/reinstall?

Reference to my post in the Windows Activation subforum:

http://www.eightforums.com/windows-...possibly-missing-updates-bsod.html#post477854

I will report back with any interesting information they might be able to gleam from my issue.

Also, there was a single BSoD over the weekend, but it was while I was away and before I had turned off VirtualBox or any of the other suggestions listed so far. I then turned off VirtualBox and unplugged all USB devices (except for mouse and keyboard) and no BSoD occurred during that time.

Link to my debug output posted in the other thread: http://www.eightforums.com/attachme...ssibly-missing-updates-bsod-sf_17-02-2015.zip

I'm hoping I can catch a BSoD when I have things disabled, but since this is my work computer, it's difficult to have those things uninstalled or unplugged when I need to actually get work done. :)

Thanks!

I am uploading the memory dump now.

@Mysers Briggs, can I send the link via PM once it is uploaded? Regardless of difficulty in recovering useful information by a malicious user, I would prefer to keep the link private and short lived, not publicly searchable by anyone to download.

If anyone else wants it, let me know and I'll give you a separate download link via PM.
