  1. System Files Corrupt

    at very first it was a power cut during which no file writing task was happening and after that windows boot into automatic recovery and then into something what looked similar to CHKDSK /f

    note :i recently tried a unsuccessful*1,look at bottom install of MYSQL 5.1.33which is old

    then got a BSOD saying "CRITICAL PROCESS DIED" sometime after it

    then i installed the latest version of mysql8.0

    i don't know what could it be cause i had only opened a single tab in EDGEchromium and when i entered a few keywords in the search bar ..the bsod shows up

    pls guide me how to fix this BSOD

    What to do if i get this in sfc /scannow
    Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.
    Beginning verification phase of system scan.
    Verification 100% complete.
    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
    For online repairs, details are included in the CBS log file located at
    windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For offline
    repairs, details are included in the log file provided by the /OFFLOGFILE flag.

    i tried DISM after this but it says that everything is fine

    right now everything is fineincluding mysql but i want to track down the cause of the bsod and the message in sfc /scannow

    *1=the install was struck at "registering service" and the windows service module named task took lot of cpu for no visible reason & loong time which resulted in nothing, i ended up killing the installer from task manager

    *i also already have a clean install of latest windows 10

  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.

      Command prompt (Admin)
      to bring up elevated Command prompt.
    • In Command prompt type sfc/scannow and press enter.

    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.
