    Copy & paste the above into an Admin command prompt, let it run through, then reboot and run it a second time and see if it comes up negative.

    Probably one of these updates caused this:

    @Cliff S Tried the commands you posted few times and no success.

    Should I uninstall any KB from the Update list?

    @visruth I personally never had problems with the update, so I can't make any recommendation there. You do reboot after running SFC & DISM though, correct?

    See if this tutorial can help: WinSxS Folder (Component Store) - Clean Up in Windows 8.1
    and this: DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8

    Yes, you're correct . Exactly tried it 4 times, reboot after each & every scan. At the end its the same error.
    I'm thinking its updates that caused it because I had got clean SFC before the update.

    I'll try the tutorials.

    EDIT: Tried almost everything in the two tutorials except Option 3 & 4 in this . Should I continue try it?

    Thank you

    If you want to uninstall an update NO
    All existing service packs and updates cannot be uninstalled after this command is completed. This option will not block the uninstallation of future service packs or updates installed.


    Also Win8 doesn't have a service pack-- you made the right choice in not doing those.

    @visruth,
    I've seen somewhere a tutorial on how to run DISM through install media or the windows ISO mounted in file explorer, but can't remember where. Maybe Shawn knows. When you run it through the install media it should work like a charm. You'll just have to remember to change the drive letter from the tutorial to whatever yours will be.
