    Use this Tech Bench link to download YOUR version of Windows 10. Please follow the instructions to the letter.

    * Make sure you download the same Windows 10 Edition, Language and Bit-version as your computer is now running.

    Once you have the iso downloaded, right click at the ISO > click Mount > leave it there.
    Then open the elevated command prompt and copy and paste this................

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:H:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess

    Note : H is the drive where the iso is mounted. Change it if your driver letter is different.

    When it is completed, you should get the report that the operation is successful.
    Now run the sfc /scannow again. It should be ok this time.

    Your second attempt was OK. What your error is telling you is exactly what it says. Windows doesn't have the required files (in the component store) to fix the corruption and you need to specify a source for these files.

    You need an ISO or installation media and in fact you'll need this whatever method of fixing you decide to do so you may as well download it if you don't have one. You can download an ISO from Microsoft here - just pick the correct language etc Tech Bench

    Mount the ISO (by double clicking on it) and then check which drive it has assigned (in this example it is D)

    Then enter Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:D:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess
    as described here DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image - Windows 10 Forums

    Alternatively use this utility - it has worked well for me and is easier than remembering all the convoluted dism syntax: Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk - Windows 10 Forums

    Do try also before running dism again to delete your log files in C:\Windows\Logs\DISM and then afterwards copy the dism.log to your desktop, zip it and upload it here as I can't see your google drive - I'm not authorized. See Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Ten Forums - Windows 10 Forums

    Definitely. I have 20GB for the whole Windows installation.

    I doubt getting dism to work will fix your original problem with the start menu though. Try making another account and see if that works. If the new account works then the component store corruption which dism fixes is not the issue (but should still perhaps be fixed anyway).

    Try option 3 here User Account - Add in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums . Log on to the new account and see if start menu works.
    still doesn't work
    C:\Windows\system32>Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:esd:D:\Install.esd:1 /limitaccess

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.10586.0

    Image Version: 10.0.10586.0


    Error: 0x800f081f

    The source files could not be found.
    Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see Configure a Windows Repair Source.

    The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log

    Read my reply, Post 11.

    Pay attention to this line....................
