    I'd just like to express my appreciation for your info. I had a sfc problem with my W8.1 Pro and solved it in these forums. Here are the references which may help others too:

    If I type in type sfc /scannow will this remove anything besides the bad stuff ?

    Hello Bob.

    Nope. The SFC will only scan to see if you have any corrupted or modified Windows system files. If any are found, then SFC will automatically try to repair them by replacing them with a clean default copy from the component store.

    Basically, no harm no foul unless you modified a system file that will be undone afterwards.

    You're image was broken. See if uploading and attaching the image directly here instead will work.

    Hello ichbinrt, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If this is for a BSOD, then you should read the instructions below and post this in the BSOD Crashes and Debugging forum instead for better support with it.
