    Sfc/scannow not working


    After running the scan I got an error saying that it was unable to fix corrupt files and after running dism component cleanup and restore health no change

    Should I restart? will that effect anything?

    I did the steps and I have received the file on my desktop but upon opening there is nothing there like not one letter that I can see , I did all the steps correctly and I have ran sfc/scannow before
    So it should be there right?

    It depends. If you ran SFC at boot, it wouldn't be logged.

    How would I do such a thing if I was running win 10?

    never mind I have figured out how to do it
    But once I get to command prompt what steps would you like me to do
    (after getting into advanced settings what commands do I put in?)
