  1. #11


    Got the CMD as admin...doesn't show a % just a blinking cursor. When I tried to SFC /SCANNOW from here before it said that there was another program running preventing SFC.

    It takes a while to show anything.
    Just wait for 20% to appear.

    You got the sfc message because dism was already running.

    Once you start the dism command it takes its' own good time to display the 20% complete message.
    After a long time it will suddenly reach 100% complete & say the store corruption was repaired.

    Then close the command window & open another administrator command prompt & run sfc /scannow.

    Sounds good, its still chugging along...no % yet! All this time I have spent and you can fix in minutes...I even downloaded Norton Cause I thought Defender didnt catch a virus...guess i can delete Norton Now!

    Thanks again,
    Scott

    The more corruption you have, the longer dism takes to fix things.

    I'll be here till we sort this out.

    EDIT-- Sometimes I have to wait 15 minutes or more before it shows a 20% complete.

    You could close the prompt & try it again if it soon doesn't show something.
    I would give it half an hour.

    Your computer must really have corruptions.

    No, nothing will hold it up.

    Be patient.
    Computers can bug the hell out of you sometimes.

    Is there a program that I can use to keep it cleaner? I have Glarysoft on here, but havent used it much or lately. Also, I think that I should probably stick with Defender as antivirus and delete Norton. I need some utility to keep it clean and running smoothly, a good cleaning out now and then...just so many out there, I dont know which is best, if any. Or is there a CMD that I can run that will clean it out and running fast?

    Being patient!

    I got rid of Norton.
    Didn't like it.

    I use CCleaner:

    Download CCleaner 4.10.4570 - FileHippo.com

    It has various options.
    A lot of people use it.
    I like it.
