    yeah i did the third option you said right? and when i run the troubleshooter again it says the installing recent updates fixed. but when i use sfc /scannow it still says corrupted files where found but was unable to fix some of them and when i use dism /restorehealth it says source files could not be downloaded. So what do i do now?

    Windows update troubleshoot now says installing recent updates not fixed. Even when I reinstall it.

    In that case, you might consider to refresh or reset Windows 8.1.

    Refresh Windows 8

    Reset Windows 8

    Will updating from windows 8.1 to windows 10 solve the problem? as it may replace all files including the corrupted ones or not?

    It should since the OS would be fresh.

    Thank you that's all I need to know. If I cant fix it I might resort to updating to windows 10 before I resort to reformat. Also I just want to ask will updating to windows 10 delete or affect my programs and application in anyway or not? Just being sure.

    Hi, I was looking at the DISM Tutorial. I know that there is a possibility to give the DISM command prompt the file path for a file to file online sharing of windows image files for windows 8. I don't have an image or the ability to make a downloaded image. Do you have a path that I can use to give the command for DISM to allow it to access an online source to get the corrupted files fixed? And if so, what is the command that I should enter in the command prompt?

    Hello consultantbis, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You would want to use the command in step 5 in OPTION ONE.
