Isn't the sfc cmd supposed to scan and restore the integrity of system files if it finds a problem! I just ran the cmd on my win 10 64bit but after completion of the scan this is what I get "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some...". I don't have the installation disc, and it really kills me when something ain't right with my computer. Thanks a lot.

Well, you could always try a Reset under Recovery in the Update & Security settings.  You have an option to keep your files but Win10 gets reinstalled.  This does, however, wipe out any software you've installed and you'll have to do that again.

 

If you're not having any functional issues with your system why are you worried about what SFC /SCANNOW says?

Thanks Britechguy! What's worrying me is the fact that as long I'm getting that message, my windows is not 100%. Its the tip of an iceberg: more problems will come sooner or later. I got no external disk to backup my data and reset windows so it seems I got no choice but to coexist with the problem for now.

You don't need an external disc to backup your data nor installation media to do a Reset recovery.  It's a built-in feature of Win10 and the OS is downloaded again as part of the process.

 

The catch being that even if you do choose the "keep my files" option that keeps only your personal data files, not the programs/apps you may have installed since acquiring Win10 in the first place.  If all those programs/apps are able to be reinstalled as you need them this is still a workable option.

 

I have seen sfc /scannow return error messages occasionally on systems which are and have been running perfectly (and then continue to do so for looooooong times afterward).  This is one of those things where if you're not having problems don't worry about this until/unless you do.

Wow, thanks a lot man. It's a relief for sure. What I didn't know is there is an option for me to keep my personal data when resetting. I'll reinstall the deleted programs.Thanks again. My problem's solved, then
