  1. Corrupted system files and unable to fix them


    I recently had a psu failure, which cause my pc to crash. Ever since I’ve been getting bsod anytime I try to run online games. I used sfc /scannow, which detected corrupted files. I ended up using a fresh clean installation of win 10 with a boot drive, but that still did not fix the problem. What’s also weird is that sfc only finds corrupted files about 70% of the time, while other times it detects none, what is going on?

  2. Corrupted file RAR

    If the archive has been created using WinRAR, why don't you try WinRAR itself? It has a built-in repair feature for repairing corrupted archive (ZIP as well as RAR). Follow the steps given below:
    • Open WinRAR application in your system.
    • Now click on File tab > Open or simply press Ctrl+O.
    • A small window "Find Archive" will pop up. Locate the corrupt RAR archive from your system directory and select it.
    • Now click Open button.
    • Click Tools tab > Repair archive or simply press Alt+R.
    • Again a small window "Repairing File name.rar" will pop up.
    • Now click Browse to select a location to save the repaired archive.
    • Check the box "Treat the corrupt archive as RAR" and click OK.
    • WinRAR will start repairing of corrupt RAR archive. Once it gets completed click Close.
    I hope the above steps will help you repair the corrupted RAR archive.

    Thanks.

  3. Corrupt file - Can't fix. [Fixed]

    Hi Vincent,

    Thank you for posting your concern here in Microsoft Community.



    Before proceeding, please check if the same issue occur when logged in through a different user account.

    Ref: Add or remove accounts on your PC

    Please perform the below steps and see if it helps to resolve the issue.

    This issue may happen due to system file corruption. I suggest you to run System file checker. System File checker (SFC) scan is done to check if there are any corrupted system files that could be causing this issue. Kindly follow
    the below given steps:

    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin)
      to bring up elevated Command prompt.
    • In Command prompt type sfc/scannow and press enter.
    • Restart the computer.
    If no corrupted system files were found in the previous state, then I suggest you to try the following steps:

    • Open command prompt by pressing Windows key + X and selecting “Command prompt admin”.
    • In command prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    • Close the command prompt and restart the PC and check if it works.
    Hope this information helps. Please post us if you need any further assistance with Windows.

    Thank you.

  4. Corrupted system files and unable to fix them

    SFC scan found corrupt files and was unable to fix some of them.

    In accordance with the title, I decided to run an SFC scan after I had to forcibly shut my laptop down after a system freeze. It did find corrupt files and was unable to fix all of them. I've included the CBS.log file if a diagnosis is possible. My laptop is the Dell G3 as listed in my system specs. Thanks!
