Yesterday some downloaded windows updates caused problems on my laptop. I had run an SFC scan afterwards which said there were errors...before the windows updates an SFC scan was clean.
I ran DISM and it repaired the corruption and then SFC scan was back to no errors again.
To be on the safe side though I decided to return my laptop back to the previous system restore point instead. I create one or two restore points every week...one of them is always after running SFC scannow to be sure any system errors are picked up early.
1. This was a clean Windows 8.1 installation done about two weeks ago so I know there were at least 5 system restore points done during that time. When I went to system restore though there was only one restore point (the last one) and no options to select any older restore points!! Has anyone any idea of what caused this?
2. I ran DISM then SFC scan again before doing the System Restore..could that have wiped out all the previous System Restore points?
3. When you have SFC Scannow errors is it advisable to try System restore first or try to sort it out with DISM first which is what Ive always done in the past?
