    You will need to give it about 15 to 20 minutes. If it doesn't do anything, cancel the updates and open an administrative command prompt. In command prompt, type in sfc /scannow.

    You performed the correct command. The good news is that you don't have any corrupted Windows files. The bad news is that we still don't know what is causing this. I think you should try to system restore as shown in this tutorial: System Restore - How to Do in Windows 8
