    Windows suddenly has failures I can't fix

    I recently have run into a number of problems that I've tried to solve on my own, but now I'm at my wit's end. Here is what I've done so far.
    • windows built in calculator wouldn't run (this app can't open check the Microsoft store).
    • sfc /scannow - got corrupted file errors (unable to fix)
    • ran DISM restorehealth with a mounted usb iso, got remote procedure call failed
    • tried to restore with restore point. I had absolutely created a restore when the last issue arose and was fixed but it's not there now.
    • ran reset, failed with "no changes were made"

    I have run DISM successfully in the past so I don't think it's operator error. If anyone is familiar with problems like this I could use some help. I've been running Windows 10 since December, and occasionally getting an error which up till now I could fix with either sfc or dism. Now I'm stuck.

    Have you tested your hard drive with the manufacture diagnostic tool? It sounds like you could be dropping sectors.

    I didn't check, but I will do that. Thanks for the suggestions. I ran the disk diagnostics. Everything seems fine.
