    3. In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, type the following commands. Press
    Enter key after each command:

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    To close the Administrator: Command prompt window, type
    Exit, and then press Enter.
