There isn't any harm I can do by running either on a weekly basis, is there?
    Hello Allison,

    Other than some wear and tear on your hard drives with the extra reads/writes, no.

    Once a week is bit too often though unless you suspect corrupted files. If you like, about once a month or as needed is fine.

    I run them all the time to keep small problems from becoming big problems.

    I've noticed no ill effects from doing so.

    It seemingly fixed my system:

    C:\Windows\system32>Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 6.3.9600.17031

    Image Version: 6.3.9600.17031

    [==========================100.0%==========================]
    The restore operation completed successfully. The component store corruption was repaired.
    The operation completed successfully.
    It was rather quick on an SSD drive, 10 minutes tops but didn't time it

    error when running DISM


    I was having some issues with the windows component store so I ran the sfc /scannow and it found errors so I ran the DISM commands but when I ran the last one I got an error.
    These are the results from the 3 commands.

    The source files could not be downloaded.
    Use the "source" option to specify the location of the files that are required t
    o restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see
    Configure a Windows Repair Source.

    The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>



    I went to the link it suggested but it just took me to the windows default page. I do have a backup that I created with Acronis True Image about a week ago that I can use to restore the computer if need be (hoping that backup is good since the issues just started with the windows store (at least that I noticed). But I am not sure what they mean by the "source option"

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks


    Oddly enough when I posted this it showed a different link than what appeared in my command prompt. - Oh well, not going to follow anything there until I hear back. Thanks

    I was just reviewing that link and the part about the group policy editor says

    • Open the group policy editor. For example, on a computer that is running Windows 8.1, from the start screen, type Edit Group Policy, and then select Edit Group Policy to open the Group Policy Editor.
    • Click Computer Configuration, click Administrative Templates, click System, and then double-click the Specify settings for optional component installation and component repair setting.
    • Select the settings that you want to use for Features on Demand.

      However, there is no Administrative Templates when I click on computer configuration?

    Hello Injr,

    You should see Administrative Templates under Computer Configuration like below when you expand open Computer Configuration.

    Click image for larger version

    When I type edit group policy and open it mine does not look like that Click image for larger version

    This is what I see when I open it up. There is no folder Adminstrative Templates.

    In that case, open an elevated command prompt, copy and paste the command below, and press Enter. Afterwards, open Group Policy to see if it's back. This is from: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/555218/

    regsvr32 gptext.dll


    If not, then see if this below can add it back.

    I did try that and it said that it succeeded but nothing changed and that other link just explains how to add items to the administrative templates folder which isn't even there

    I did come across this information, but it is in regards to windows xp
