Hello All,

 

I apologise for making my first post a plea for help, but I'm at my wit's end...

 

I realise this is a common issue with Windows 10, I've searched for solutions to the CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED, since upgrading.

 

I have already updated graphics drivers and ensured that my BIOS settings are appropriate for my SSD. So far, in the last 2 days I've had no further instances.

 

However, when I ran SFC /scannow I received the following message:

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.10240]
(c) 2015 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>sfc /scannow

Beginning system scan.  This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some
of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For
example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently not
supported in offline servicing scenarios.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>

I have attached the log file

 

 

 

Further research suggested I should attempt to clean up the corrupt files, with dism, but I encountered the Error: 0x800f081f:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
Version: 10.0.10240.16384

Image Version: 10.0.10240.16384

[==========================100.0%==========================]

Error: 0x800f081f

The source files could not be found.
Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=243077.

The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log

C:\WINDOWS\system32>

I have attached the log file for this too.

 

 

 

Where do I go from here? Would be grateful for any assistance.

 

Many Thanks,

Paul

Hello,

Try to run CHKDSK then if there are errors type CHKDSK /f  or  /r

Most of the time corrupt files are in bad sectors and which usually will get fixed by running CHKDSK its worked for me many times :thumbup2:

Apologies for my ignorance, but does it matter which of those is run, CHKDSK /r or CHKDSK /f? Do they do the same thing?

This is also on an SSD, is it safe to run this command on an SSD?

CHDSK /r checks the disk on R, CHKDSK /f scans the F disk.

CHDSK /r checks the disk on R, CHKDSK /f scans the F disk.

 

No it doesn't

 

chkdsk /r repairs bad sectors and file clusters, and chkdsk /f only repairs file clusters

 

do

chkdsk /r C:

to repair the disk

CHDSK /r checks the disk on R, CHKDSK /f scans the F disk.


Not at all. If you want to run CHKDSK to scan a specific drive, you would specify it like:
chkdsk C: /r
chkdsk D: /f
In that case, /r and /f are paremeters (switches) for the chkdsk command. /f tells chkdsk to scan the partition for disk errors and correct them. /r will tell chkdsk to scan the partition for bad sectors, mark them as such and recover the data from these bad sectors if possible. In other words, /r implies /f so there's no need to enter:
chkdsk /f /r
As it would just be redundant. This being said, the /f switch is used as a precautionnary measure on drives you suspect are failing, because running the chkdsk /r on an heavily corrupted disk could lead to the deletion of data and you do not want that (it could even make Windows unbootable).

I suggest you to look up your information before you post it in the future :)

Hello, AtLastFoundaUsername

Sorry for me not explaing my self I meant for you to

please try CHKDSK /f which will prevent possible corruptions.

So please try that one first.

 

 

Also you say you have a SSD?

Well if so then There are no Sectors on a SSD and therefore you could not run CHKDSK /r

only CHKDSK /f

1029rjmenvy17t, are you suggesting I run CHKDSK /r based on the contents of the log files I have provided?

Hello,

 

dskchk did nothing for me with this issue, hopefully it will fix yours

 

On my machine I ended up running the DISM a couple of ways including referencing an install .wim on a DVD

 

I followed the advice in the next to the last post here:

https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/0edc3dbd-a96d-4f1b-ac49-c67216483793/dism-error-0x800f081f-and-sfc-failed-to-repair?forum=win10itprohardware

 

Which helped with some, but it turned out there was a corrupt file in the image...

This is Windows 10, I don't have an installation DVD. I have a system image, but that is based on the contents of my drive, that I trying to run repairs on.

 

My concerns are:

 

a. running CHKDSK on an SSD

b. I have seen many replies to other posts, which take a different approach to this scannow & dism issue, but on this post somebody suggests I run CHKDSK.

These files can easily be replaced, however I'm not allowed to proceed with that kind of assistance on BleepingComputer since I'm still a trainee. You would have to go on Sysnative.

chkdsk only repairs the disk by file system

 

As for running chkdsk on SSD, it is safe (it will most likely fix file cluster issues, and I would be surprised if it finds any bad sectors)

 

The sfc checks for corrupted system files. I won't be able to help you with that as I am under training, but you can create a post in sysnative Windows Update forums)

Nope you need to run CHKDSK /f

CHKDSK /r wont work on a SSD since it does not have sectors

 

Here is the command you need to type in command prompt

 

C:

CHKDSK (This will scan the drive for errors) and its safe for SSDs

If errors come up type the following

CHKDSK /f

and you might need to restart the PC

CHKDSK completed after a restart.

 

Reran sfc, corrupt files were found and repaired, therefore no need to run dism :tophat:

 

Thanks for your help!
