Windows 10: Windows Resource protection could not perform the requested operation Solved

    Windows Resource protection could not perform the requested operation

    I managed to receive a couple of blue screens after updating Nvidia driver to 388.13 so I rolled back and then things went calm again , but then Windows came up with a notification that my C: disk needing a scan and if I should schedule one upon restart , it took roughly 2 hours stuck at 20% then booted to Windows normally on its own , which drove me to check if Windows installation is still ok so I ran SFC /ScanNow but however I got the message : Windows Resource protection could not perform the requested operation at 91% .

    Googling it and fixes recommended either I do a check disk again or run SFC again from safe mode where I did both with same result so any suggestion ?

    P.S Please do not direct me to DISM , I do know of DISM but usually I just end up with a log file hinting which files needing to be replaced and refusing any image I provide as a source to provide them and then if I replaced them by copies I find online the problem persist to remain .

    Hi, I would first examine the chkdsk report, as it seems you don't know the outcome of that.

    See the following- it would be worth doing (1) anyway as it doesn't take long.

    1. First check your disk:
    Download and run Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) and make sure all disks are reported as good.
    If not, do not continue, and post back .

    2. Now check your file system:

    From an admin command or powershell prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:

    Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.

    @dalchina sorry for the delay , the laptop had a 4 days task to perform before I could restart , here are the results :
    Checking file system on C:The type of the file system is NTFS.Volume label is WINDOWS10.A disk check has been scheduled.Windows will now check the disk. Stage 1: Examining basic file system structure ... 822272 file records processed. File verification completed. 7468 large file records processed. 0 bad file records processed. Stage 2: Examining file name linkage ... 36626 reparse records processed. 931976 index entries processed.

    Windows has finished checking your disk.Please wait while your computer restarts.
    So basically despite it remains stuck at 20% for a while then boots , the task is completed without errors .
    now the problem remains that i still can't get scan now to complete .

    Also I realized an odd behavior in start menu , certain installed apps would not show , I can run them from the store but not from start menu , on the other side there is an app at the bottom named ms-resource:appDisplayName , I googled and they name such thing phantom app , there is a Powershell command line to refresh store apps but despite completing successfully nothing changed .

    Others keep whining this is a build 1709 bug that wont just go so I am not sure if this is a sign of corruption or not .

    I reached a conclusion after several tackles that the best way to fix windows corruptions is through Media Creation tool by Microsoft to re-install windows , this move has advantages above resetting windows that it does not remove profiles / software / files .

    Open administrative command prompt and copy and paste: (make sure that the computer is not on a metered connection)

    1) sfc /scannow
    2) dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
    3) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    4) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread
