, click/tap on this.
You will see a window similar to the one below.
When the Elevated Command Prompt opens copy and paste in sfc /scannow, then press Enter.
This will take a while, have patience and allow it finish. Stopping this scan could damage files.
When the scan is finished please post the log of this scan.
