    SFC /SCANNOW doesn't work yet in W-10. Their must be a big mess in the system files while making the very young operating system.
    Well put it another way it works but shows nothing but a mess and no logs.
    Scannow does work in W10, CBS logs are also recorded, my CBS logs are 5m/b in size.
    Do look at my earlier post with the Command Prompt Attachment to confirm this.

    Hi there. Chkdsk nor Windows Resource Protection (Windows) has nothing to do with antivirus, however WRP it is a safety feature of the Windows system. Chkdsk is to fix disk errors. What exactly is the warning did it give?

    Scannow cannot fix files because the store is corrupt. Please run www.eightforums.com/showthread.php?t=26512 to fix, then run scannow until errors are fixed. It may take multiple times to do so.

    OK, I see scannow does work, but DISM can't possibly for there are no final releases to compile an official list of files. It's Beta.

    This is what I get no matter how many time I run it.

    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.4.9860]
    (c) 2014 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>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. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For
    example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently not
    supported in offline servicing scenarios.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>

    This warns me that my router is accessible from the internet on all other computers in the house.
    That warning makes no sense. Of course your router is accessible from the internet. How else would the internet work? Your router *IS* what gives access to the internet... why all of your computers are reporting it.
    You are of course wrong stating that my router should be accessible to all and sundry to gain access to my computer and all details therein, that's what firewalls are there for.
    Thanks to the warnings given by Avast as shown in my original post I have been able to rectify it.
    How ? By clicking on "disable access to your router from internet" under the word Solution...see attachment first post.
    How was it enabled in the first place ? it can only be either W10 TP or my broadband supplier to gain info.

    SFC reports 100s of 'errors' because Win10 is limited to English. Most, if not all, of the 'errors' reported are language related (LP and fonts). There is nothing an end user can do to get around this and these 'errors' can be safely ignored in the Tech preview.

    A few comments about DISM
    1) Elevated Command Prompt:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    2) Elevated PowerShell
    Repair-WindowsImage -Online -RestoreHealth

    You tried the Powershell version in Command Prmopt - that won't work.

    About security on Win10:
    I'm running the preinstalled Defender and feel comfortable doing so.
    Avast previously had an install issue, so I'd be wary of it's readiness for Win10

    My suggestion is to forget about trying to get Avast running on Win10 and protect the system with Defender ... for now. Let Avast work out the issues for a while and try installing later. If there are still Avast issue, stay on Defender until those issues get resolved. You're not having any fun this way - trying to work through Avast / Win10 issues.

    On mine SFC & DISM are automatic
    They run in the background the same as it does for Defrag and whatever else during maintenance

    Never tried running them manually, as I have seen them run on their own in task manager

    Good catch. How was it enabled in the first place?

    Not knowing your ISP makes it difficult (I didn't scour the thread though). Some ISPs do set the router that way (or don't bother to change the router's default) so they can access your network. If you have a bundled pkg (phone, TV, Internet) the ISP might have a legitimate need - I know Vze often resets the network as one of the 1st things when trying to trouble shoot an issue.

    I'd give your ISP a call and ask them about it instead of relying on Avast's reporting an 'erroneous' router setting. You could check with Avast as well, but I think your ISP knows best.

    How does the software firewall protect the router? I always thought that was why routers have hardware firewalls. I admit I don't know a lot about firewalls.

    Paul: I checked TaskScheduler and only see WinSAT under Maint (Defrag is a seperate task)
    Do you see Event logs showing that SFC and DISM ran or are there TaskScheduler enteris (what category?)

    I'm wondering if what you're seeing is part of the Tech Preview process (check for preview builds) or part of Win10.

    Curious minds want to know
