      This issue may occur in Windows 10 Version 1511. When you install Windows, it installs a version of opencl.dll. However hardware drivers may also install their own version of opencl.dll, and if the driver version is different than the one installed by Windows, SFC may report this as file corruption and may not replace the file.

      When this happens, the opencl.dll file is not actually corrupt. It is not necessary that you take any action the report that opencl.dll is corrupt can be safely ignored.

      Microsoft is aware of this problem with Windows 10 Version 1511 and is working on a resolution.

    Should have already been fixed IMO.

    FWIW, when I checked one of the Insider Preview builds a while back (maybe 3 or 4 releases ago), it was fixed in that branch of the code. I opined at the time in my Windows Enterprise Desktop blog that when the Redstone branch converges with the Current Branch, the repair will also come through. This sounds like it may actually happen sooner than that...

    Thanks for this update guys, this still plagues me even though some users are no longer affected by this issue.
    I do not bother running SFC lately after updating a Graphics driver, last time i did it showed this.
