You need to run it as administrator
Press Windows key + X.
Click command prompt (Run as administrator).
Type the command : sfc/scannow
If it doesn't work tell us what kind of error you get exactly ? Could you take a screenshot ?

Hi @philcas

You have to manually fix the error which are not fixed by sfc/scannow.

But 1st we should know what are the errors.

1) Open CMD as admin > run sfc/scannow

It will log a report to debug the same

2) Paste the below code in the command prompt

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt

This will generate all the SR in the cbs log in your desktop file named as sfcdetails.txt.

3) Try to fiilter out results with cannot

This will give you the actual resource that are currupted and that are not fixable.

4) This is the hard part. You have to search for the fixes manually from google search, relating the text.

boot from your Operating System's DVD and go to recovery (bottom-right after the installer starts up)
select manual repair and then select command prompt

use sfc /scannow from there :)
