    Narrator


    All of a sudden, the "Narrator", auto-starts on boot-up while "Narrator" is turned off in 'Ease of Access'.

    I can exit Narrator but cannot find out why it is auto-starting?

    You can run the DISM command and then the SFC command to fix this and the system restart problem you mentioned in another thread. This is from the tutorial forum. DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image - Windows 10 Forums .

    Have you tried task manager, startup tab and disable it?

    Thank you for you help but the Narrator doesn't show up in the task manager, start-up tab, although it is running?

    John, I finally was able to download the ISO and burn it to a DVD

    What is next?

    Also, when running DISM, will that affect any installed programs?

    Hi emeth, DISM will fix component store corruption, it will not affect your installed programs. The SFC command uses the component store to fix system files. The idea is to fix the component store and then run the SFC command to fix the system files. Since you now have a disk try using option one #6 from the DISM tutorial: Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:D:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess where D is the drive letter of the DVD drive. You do need to do this from an elevated command prompt.

    This syntax worked but DISM still reports that the "source files cannot be found".

    I pointed the source to the external HD that contains the ESD_ISO file.

    If you are using an install.esd instead of an install.wim the command would be
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:esd:\sources\install.esd:1 /limitaccess But the install.wim from the TechBench iso works better https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/techbench . Just be sure it is the same version and build you have installed.
