Windows 10: Corrupt files on brand new install, unable to fix
Corrupt files on brand new install, unable to fix
I've reinstalled windows a couple of days ago and after installing all my drivers and files and applications, I decided to run sfc /scannow just to be sure everything went right. It found some corrupted files, and was unable to fix them. Rather than try to diagnose the problem, I decided to just reinstall again. So I did, and right after I reinstalled windows I ran sfc /scannow again. Again it found corrupted files! I have no idea where they're coming from, since the install is completely fresh. It's even installed on a new SSD I bought a couple of days ago.
I tried running DISM, but that failed as well. Here's the output from Command Prompt:
And the logs are attached to this post. Does anyone have an idea what might be causing this? I've already checked the SSD's S.M.A.R.T. status, since I figured it might have been delivered faulty, but it reports no errors.

I'd take a look at the logs myself but I'm unsure what I should be looking for. Thanks in advance!
You need the Install.wim which can be obtained by downloading the ISO from Tech Bench.
Once you have the iso downloaded, right click at the ISO > click Mount > leave it there.
Then open the elevated command prompt and copy and paste this................
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:H:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess
Note : H is the drive where the iso is mounted. Change it if your driver letter is different.
When it is completed, you should get the report that the operation is successful.
Now run the sfc /scannow again. It should be ok this time.
Have you tried memtest or something like it to test the memory?
I've had a look at your CBS log and the corrupt file turns out to be opencl.dll. This is a known problem and is due to the graphics card driver changing the file. It actually does not cause a problem and I believe a future Microsoft update will fix the issue so that the sfc scan will not false alarm. Do you have an NVidia graphics card by any chance?
Thanks for the info, I'll try this if I run into any further issues. As per phil's answer, if it is a known issue, I'd rather not run any "fixing" operations on a fresh install, as they might cause more problems.
Ran one last week, it passed.
Ah, so that's probably what's causing the issue, as I do indeed have an NVidia graphics card (GTX 780). If it's a known issue like you said, I think I'll just ignore the error for a while. Is there any ongoing thread or discussion where I can follow the progress of Microsoft fixing the issue? Perhaps on the Microsoft site?
Have a look at post #226 on this thread:
Latest NVIDIA GeForce Graphics Drivers for Windows 10
Some of the insiders have discovered the issue has been fixed on their latest builds.
Thank you SO SO Much! I just registered on this forum to express my thanks. This fixed my issue perfectly!!!!!
Thank you so much for posting your concise instructions how to solve this problem when the sfc/scannow cmd reports finding corrupt files and perversely states that it can't (won't) fix them. Using the Win 10_1511 iso for RestoreHealth worked for me.
You are very welcome.
Good to know both of you have the problem resolved.
I ran sfc /scannow in an admin command prompt, however when it completes I receive this message:

Trying to run down some error codes in the admin log I decided to run the SFC scan to see if any files were corrupt and many were which were fixed except for 2 and was wondering if anyone here knows how to read and make fixes to the CBS.log, thanks
Windows search doesn't work. I ran SFC /scannow and there is corrupt files, the log is attached.
I apparently got one or some corrupted files during last update... Computer Win 7 Pro works fine but sfc/scannow etc including install repair wont fix.... will Windows 10 install fix these??
