    Windows 10 probably corruption sfc /scannow taking hours

    HP 15-an050 - Windows 10 build 14393.rs1_release 161220_1747

    Am experiencing alot of different issues so assume corruption.
    1) wi-fi (wireless) wont connect - all other laptops I have are fine
    2) cannot add new user - get "something went wrong"
    3) microsoft security client error code - 0x80070057
    4) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth fails 0x8009001d

    Tried to use HP recovery manager - but got error re: cant open file X:/sources/recovery/Tools/HP/Rita-tool

    Am now trying to run sfc /scannow in Safe Mode - only at 14% and has been running for almost 2 hours.

    Any other suggestions - this is fairly new - and i dont have much on it - just wouldnt want to lose apps installed at factory.

    Hi karst. Welcome to the TenForums @karst

    Being new it is likely under warranty. If it is under warranty you can likely get them to send a set of recovery disks for free. Look up their CDN support number and gentle prod them in the right direction.

    SFC can take some time but I would first rule out that you are not experiencing a disk error.

    command prompt(admim)


    with no options or switches just to get a report.

    There is a process call an in place repair / upgrade. Here is the tutorial. This will take you from the installed version of Windows 10 to the Creator's Update, V1703.

    Read the warnings in tutorial.
