    at least the ones on c:\windows\fonts\ are good, checked the SHA-1 was correct with the ones i extracted the files from the install.wim with 7-zip

    problem is this 0 byte ones, no point replacing them since they are like compressed, or maybe i'll try the ones from another pc.

    oh, those are the regular ones, i'm looking for the ones from winsxs (my folder is named C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft-windows-f..pe-palatinolinotype_31bf3856ad364e35_6.3.9600.16384_none_40623d4fcf72ad3d ), they weight a little less, they are probably a compressed version

    lo and behold, manually putting the files there worked (had to edit permissions of the folders to be able to)



    thanks for your help guys

    I think I need help


    Hello Shawn and Thank you for these great tutorials. This is my first time asking for help, although I use your tuts all the time. I don't understand why I can't get the Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth command to work for me (I've used it before o.k. I'm trying to get things straight before Windows 10). I also can't run the sfc /scannow at boot. I'm not sure which volumes to use? I've attached the sfcdetails.txt and a screenshot of my diskpart volumes. Do you think you could help me? Thank you in advance.

    Hello mcmjuly, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    From your sfcdetails.txt file, it appears that the issue is with files from the KB3068708 update. You might see if uninstalling and reinstalling the update may repair theses files.

    Well, I uninstalled and reinstalled still getting the same "corrupt files" message when running sfc /scannow. Did some looking around and found out that KB3068708 is an optional update, that basically tracks everything you do on your pc. Microsoft says in this article that this update will indeed cause sfc to throw a "corrupt files" message, when there is actually no file corruption at all....a false positive? https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3068708 I uninstalled and ran sfc again, still got corrupt file issues....however, you will see in the link provided KB3022345 is pretty much the same thing as KB3068708. The later was created to replace the former. I think I might try uninstalling the KB3022345 and see if it removes the error....or maybe I'll just not worry about it. What do you think?


    Well, I guess the above info is correct. When I uninstalled both updates (which are both optional updates): I got a clean bill of health in /scannow:

    It does not work for me. Says windows resource protection could not start the repair service. I have tried everything to fix it, including the enable trustedinstaller and all that. I can not get it to run.
