    Sorry for the delay . Maybe ive gone off the deepend and forgotten things with age . Please tell me if im wrong . the only reason why you get integrity errors on SFC when there is nothing wrong ' is because the files that are been checked against is the ISO install that you used originally . So if that is the case , if the windows updates that have happened since the install , which do not update the ISO install at all , means once you change/update the ISO its checking the system files against , you will not get any integrity issues . Possibly something has changed but i definetly don't know if it has , and if it has changed there no mention of it anywhere i can find
    Well, almost.
    If an update alters system files then it is supposed to do two things:
    - Create a backup copy of the new file in a location that SFC uses to do its comparison, and
    - Alter the SFC 'manifest' so that SFC knows what it is supposed to be checking.
    Sometimes updates get it wrong, as discussed earlier in the thread.

    ... you never have to reset windows ...
    The most effective protection against any need to reset or take other drastic action is to make frequent system images.
    I make a new one each month & I keep several of the old ones.
    If an update were to wreck my Windows then I'd restore the system image.
    - I'd try to fix the fault.
    - If I was not able to, I'd try to uninstall the update.
    - If the fault persisted, I'd restore the last system image.
    - Then I'd try to update again.

    All the best,

    Hi therte

    I agree with you on effectively the backing up however although that sfc problem is specifically on one of my pc,s, 99% of the time im working on client systems . Although my work doesn't mean i work on the OS , but generally if there is a problem with one of our programmes , it is almost always because of a OS problem . I do run other tools , autoruns . process explorer . but i find that the sfc is the easiest and best for me . this issue that prompted me to seek assistance is the first time ive had the sfc fail on me like this . Even while writing this message now , the problem still exists and i truly cannot tell you why it is like that. I just hope this is a bit of a freaky one off situation as i hope not to lose faith in the tool
