Windows 10: Corrupted Microsoft Edge image file

    Corrupted Microsoft Edge image file

    Out of habit I ran SFC scan after finishing Win10 upgrade & Windows Updates and found out that
    MicrosoftEdgeSquare44x44.scale-125_contrast-white.png is corrupted.

    After a quick google search, seems there a few other Win10 users with the same problem.

    Neither SFC or DISM seem to be able to fix the problem.

    I also saw someone mention this is a 'false positive' hash mismatch but at least in my case the image really is corrupted (as in, if I open it in a image editor, it fails with corrupted image error). All other Edge images in the folder open correctly in image viewer.

    Any ideas how to repair systemapp files? I'm assuming DISM/SFC fail because the system apps seem to be different from regular system files (e.g. you cannot find them on the install media from what I can see).

    Well, if it's just an image, I could send a copy from my computer over for you to overwrite the corrupt one with.

    Here is the image. The same image is located in multiple directories, but it's most likely located at C:\Windows\SystemApps\<something similar to microsoft.microsoftedge> for you.Click image for larger version.

    I'm guessing there should be some way to use Dism.exe.. unfortunately, I don't have much experience with it and don't know if you can point to to a single file.. I'll be testing some commands.

    So this might actually work, create a folder matching the corrupted image's folder in the real SXS, e.g. in my case amd64_microsoft-windows-microsoftedge_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.10240.16397_none_19381f0c8accd5dd

    Then put the image from this threat into that folder so you have something like:


    Then pull up admin CMD and run:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:c:\temp\sxs /LimitAccess

    Hopefully that restores the SxS copy and afterwards you can run SFC /scannow to repair the file under systemapps directory.
