    I had a similar problem in Win7 which was sorted by this link and help from AddRAM:

    How do you fix corrupted files found by SFC /SCANNOW? - Page 3 - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Look for the KB's installed.

    You may have to do what David recommended and reboot a few time to fix your system, when it comes up negative is everything fixed. If after 3-4 times it's positive, then the problem is usually somewhere else, or a false negative. Try using:

    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup&sfc/scannow&Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth&sfc/scannow&pause
    I'm trying this as I type, I'll let you know how I get on.

    You need to reboot then run it again. It sometimes takes a few tries for windows to repair files.

    Didn't work and I bit the bullet and did a reinstall and I'm still getting the same problem with a fresh install. I give up.

    Don't give up. This is how it works....

    sfc /scannow will take whatever is in the component store and reapply it if it can. This only copies files which are on your local disk anyway.
    dsim /online (online means your current windows image) /whatever /cleanupimage /restorehealth this means download from MS servers anything that is not correct. Basically if the hash of some .dll or .exe is diferent in the component store it will download the correct version from MS. You need internet connection for this (unless you want to grab files from another known source which probably you don't)

    So run DSIM (with whatever parameters you want but /restorehealth would be good), reboot, then run sfc.

    On a clean install it should be OK. I did a clean install of 10 yesterday and sfc says no issues.

    Okay thanks halasz I will try again, maybe the original Windows 10 iso is corrupt, it shouldn't as I got it from the Microsoft website.

    ISO's are never corrupt. You can check the SHA etc but if you got it from MS it is almost certainly OK.

    Just run dism ( DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image - Windows 10 Forums) reboot and then run SFC /scannow.

    That should do it,
