    Yes it should not have affected how Windows works but looks like it does i still cannot open Screen Saver Settings trying to repair the issue.

    Sorry, you're having an issue

    I cleaned up this laptop earlier today after the CU and haven't had any issues, that I've noticed. Sfc /scannow shows no issues, but now I've got to go cleanup the 4000+ files it leaves in \PendingRenames .... lol

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>sfc /scannow

    Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

    Beginning verification phase of system scan.
    Verification 100% complete.

    Thanks @Eagle51, no worries its was my fault i should have executed command from VM but tell you the true i thing this issue may not cause by deleting folders/files in InFlight folder i have compared the output of Dir command to Rmdir command and all the folders in InFlight folder are not deleted looks like something else cause the issue.

    Supposedly installing a trivial Windows Feature like Telnet and not touching the PC for 20 minutes works but it never does for me.

    The idea is adding a feature (or installing something I guess) triggers the TiWorker job which tidies up the pending rename/delete. It will stop if PC is busy though thus the no touching it for 20 minutes bit. I read it somewhere but honestly can't remember where or when I'm afraid and while you could try it it never works for me.

    What does work for me is Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase and reboot. The reboot is required - Dism without reboot doesn't seem to remove them.

    Worth a try perhaps.

    I tried the telnet install and it didn't work for me either.

    Yep, that's the only thing I've found that does try to clean up those folders, but it always leaves a few folders in \InFlight and a few files in \PendingDeletes.

    Note: I even tried setting Windows Modules Installer service start up to auto to see if it would do the clean up on a restart, but that didn't work either.

    Yep

    Note: The folders/files that are left are always in use by Cortana and/or System
    \PendingDeletes Folder - There are a few files in use by Cortana
    \InFlight Folder - There is one randomnumber folder that's not empty and contains a lot of files in use by the System
