Using System File Checker in Windows 10

Using System File Checker in Windows 10

System File Checker is a utility in Windows 10 that checks for problems with files on your computer. To run it, follow these steps:

Step 1

Make sure you've installed the latest updates for Windows 10, and then restart your machine. To find out more, read Update Windows 10.

Step 2

In the search box on the taskbar, type Command Prompt, and right-click or press and hold Command Prompt (Desktop app) from the list of results. Select Run as administrator, and then select Yes.

Step 3

Type DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth (note the space before each “/”), and then press Enter. (Note: This step may take a few minutes to start and up to 45 minutes to complete.)

Step 4

After you see a message that says “The operation completed successfully,” type sfc /scannow (note the space between “sfc” and “/”) and press Enter.

Step 5

After you see a message that says, “Verification 100% complete,” type exit.

Special note

During your journey as an online entrepreneur you will encounter many software problems and you'll just have to figure things out on your own.

I found these instructions on the Microsoft Support site so this is nothing more but a copy and paste, but it's in my blog because it represents a record of issues I've had with Windows 10 and hopefully these solutions will help you. They may or may not work for you. Best of luck!
