  2. System File Checker

    To make a long story short, when I contacted Microsoft a few days ago about a problem I’ve been having, one of the possible solutions they gave me was to use the System File Checker tool. When I asked Microsoft’s Virtual Agent about it, she came
    back with “…To run it:

    • Select Start Windows logo Start button, and in the search box, enter
      Command Prompt. Press and hold (or right-click) Command Prompt (Desktop app) from the search results and select
      Run as administrator.
    • Enter DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth (note the spaces before each "/").
    • Enter sfc /scannow (note the space between "sfc" and "/").”

    After the steps, she provided a link to learn more about the tool (System file check (SFC) Scan and Repair System Files & DISM to fix things SFC cannot).
    However, that did not help me much.

    Regarding steps 2 and 3, do I have to press “enter” after “…Restorehealth,” or do I type “…Restorehealth sfc /scannow” AND THEN press “enter?”

  3. System File Checker scan fails at 24% in Windows 10

    Hello to all, and to you, Yashwanth Kotakuri,

    My sfc was stopping at 19% and would not continue. I ran DISM as you state above and it fixed everything that was wrong (and there were things wrong). I then ran it again and it gave me 100% and cleaned up all errors.

    My question is: If all is well with the DISM and it restored all files, why does my system file checker STILL stop at 19%?

    How can I fix the system file checker, if there is one? If DISM says everything is OK, can I ignore the sfc?

    Windows defender is not updating

    Hi Mahendar,

    You might be experiencing this issue due to a corruption of files related to Windows Defender. To help us identify the cause of this problem, we would like to know the following information:

    • Have you made any changes on your computer before experiencing this issue?
    • Do you have other antivirus or security software installed on your system?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?
