Windows Corruption

less than 1 minute read


This post will be brief, but I wanted to create it because despite all our effort, sometimes issues cannot be resolved due to a windows corruption which will usually be one of the last steps on your checklist in a troubleshooting process. Here are some things to try to test windows corruption.

To Resolve:

  1. First and foremost, start CMD as Admin and run: sfc /scannow

This is the System File Checker and will sometimes fix Windows corruption issues, sometimes.

  1. Try: DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

followed by

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

  1. Use third party software like’s or bleepingcomputer’s repair tools.
