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.

I have attached the log file for this too.
Where do I go from here? Would be grateful for any assistance.
