    Corrupt Settings

    Just installed build 14901 on laptop, and now Settings no longer works. It appears on screen for about 10 seconds and then just disappears. It even prevents me from going back to a previous build. Even the 'get started' icons have gone.

    Other than that, the laptop works absolutely fine.

    Should I leave it until the next build or is there another way to go back.

    Thanks in advance.

    Go to Start/Search and type CMD, Right click the CMD results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type SFC /scannow and press enter. This will replace any missing or corrupted system files.

    It can also be helpfull to get the logfile of the sfc /scannow. See the steps after you did a scan.

    Please open an elevated command prompt.
    When you have the command promt open please enter the following command:
    sfc /scannow and press enter.
    After the scan is 100% and the scan did repair files please restart your computer.

    Please re-open an elevated command prompt and enter the following command:
    findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt

    The cbs.log file will be posted on the Desktop as the current user, named sfcdetails.txt. Please attach this file in your next post.

    Note: You can also copy/paste the commands to make it easier.
