    System File Checker Problem


    The computer is not running slow and no BSOD screens. All my computer specs are listed, if anything is missing that I need to add, let me know if needed to resolve this problem.

    1st - I ran the sfc /scannow command:

    So I rebooted and ran the DISM restore health:

    It completed successfully and I rebooted. So I ran the sfc /scannow command again and it fixed the corrupted files:

    I then rebooted and ran the sfc /scannow command again and it found no violations:

    I shut down the computer for maybe a half hour and all of the sudden the sfc /scannow found corrupt files again when I ran it. The screenshot isn't necessary because we already know what it looks like from my first image.

    This is part of my CBS log that I think points to the culprit; but I'll attach the whole log for anyone that can help:

    Hello,

    It shows the Event Viewer shortcut in your Administrative Tools folder is corrupted or has been modified.

    If the shortcut works, then you can safely ignore this. Otherwise, you could try to replace the shortcut from the tutorial below.

    Assimilation................did me adding a shortcut letter to the shortcut Event Viewer in Administrative Tools corrupt the shortcut?

    Yes the shortcut still works; but are you saying that the System File Checker will always point this out as corrupt and it is not a problem?

    And thirdly, a big Thank You as always for your knowledge in these matters and your helpful links and tutorials.

    Correct, modified is considered the same as being corrupted by SFC.

    O.K. - I'm going to remove the shortcut letter and run DISM again. I'll reboot and double check if the problem reproduces itself.

    If it does, I'll report back.

    The problem did not reproduce itself, so I will mark this solved.

    Thanks Shawn!
