Hi there,
 
I recently ran a System File Check scan of my PC, which resulted in it showing that several component store corruptions were detected, but were unable to be solved. The Microsoft Support page said I should manually replace missing files, but I don't know where to find them. The support page had stated that I could use files from a non-corrupted Windows, but I don't have another computer besides this one. Does anyone know how I could replace these files? 
 
The sfcdetails.txt log is attached to this post.
 
Thanks!

Attempt the steps from Microsoft here. It will repair most deeply corrupted installations. Be sure to run this in an elevated command prompt (Start -> type cmd -> right click, run as administrator)

 

DISM fix utility for corrupt windows -   https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/947821

I tried that already also. At 89.5%, DISM stops and says "the source files could not be found". I looked up a Technet Guide and it told me to enable Group Policy. Having a Windows 10 Home installation, I had to manually download and install it. Still, it could not remedy my problem since there was no "specify settings for optional component installation and component repair".

Well, you could always do a "Reset this PC" from System, Update & security, Recovery pane and use the keep my files option.  This reinstalls the OS.

 

That's my next step when SFC and DISM can't solve the problem.  Just make sure you have made backups first (as one should always do before any "major work").

Thanks! It says that the reinstall would keep my personal files, and remove my programs. Does that mean everything outside the C: Windows, and Programfiles folders will be untouched? For example I have several project and cache files for Adobe After Effects installed in the Documents folder.

Always assume the worse. It shouldn't touch any personal files however I wouldnt trust it. Make a good copy of everything you want onto a USB drive before doing any type of restore.

Chad and I have both given you the same advice: Always make backups of all your important user data before doing any type of recovery/restore/reset.

 

In theory, and probably 99% or greater of the time in practice, your user files remain untouched and exactly where you left them if you do a Reset this PC using the "keep my files" option.  However, there are always times when something goes horribly wrong and you have lost everything if you didn't back it up first.

 

Better safe than sorry.

You have been given good advice.

You WILL lose all installed programs.

Replacing them will be tedious.

Yes can be tedious,you can make it less painfull by thinking the reinstall through,in this case organise your install programs,( do an inventry so you know exactly what you need to replace) you have them ready to go and to hand and dont have to go searching around for them one by one,,copy any stand alone apps so you can replace them quickly etc.

Adding Desktop Shortcuts Under Windows 10

 

While the above is not directly pertinent, the bit regarding the use of "shell:AppsFolder" view makes it somewhat easier to take a quick inventory of the apps you've installed, whether via the Windows 10 Store or a conventional install.

Alright. Thanks for the help you all. I'll proceed to backup important program and personal files before the system reset, just in case.
