    DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8
    From this thread...sfc /SCANNOW successfully repaired?, in post #3 and #9, that the windows update KB3022345, which I have and already uninstalled, caused some file corruption that it should be removed. My laptop doesn't have a CD drive, I have created a recovery usb boot media. Is this what you are talking about? Can this DISM command be done within windows?

    Yes, the DISM command can be run from within Windows. You're basically using a downloaded Windows 8.1 ISO file as the source instead of the Windows component store to repair the files with.

    I'm slightly confused on the steps. In option 2, step 6 in the link, it says under "A" to use 'Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:Full Path to install.wim file:1'. I don't see the 'install.wim' file in the sources folder, I even search within the E usb drive and it didn't find it. I see 'install.esd, install.exe., installeventres.dll, and installprep.exe. Do I include the word 'file' in the command?

    It must because of the recovery drive you created, not sure, but I would just download an ISO myself,

    And about the word 'file', the answer is no, you can see the path in this screenshot I highlighted it,

    The example right above it shows it also,

    I did download from that link, using option 1, my laptop doesn't have a cd drive and don't have a CD/DVD burner available. When I created the usb, my anti virus real time protection was on and it said it block autorun. When it was getting the usb ready or copy the files to it, the real time protection was on. So I turned it off with it staying at 0% for a couple minutes.

    Just download the ISO file, you don't need to create a USB with it or anything else, once you have that file you can just right click on it and select mount,

    Thank you for assisting, I downloaded the .ISO from option 1 with "Windows Installation Media Creation Tool". I ran the DISM command and it go to a little over 40% and it gave an error: 0x800f0906, the source files could not be downloaded. Use the 'source' option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. Attached is the DISM log, but it's not showing.

    If you like, you could also try doing a repair install to fix the system files without losing anything.

    Are there any other options? I really don't want to lose any of my files or anything if something goes wrong. Typically how long will the repair take? My hard drive is a 5400 rpm 1 tb with approximately 200 gb used space. In the .ISO, is there a difference between windows 8.1 and 8.1 single language? It looks like I have windows 8.1 update installed because in the metro interface I see a power and search icon on the top right next to my user name.
