My Toshiba windows 8 laptop is moving extremely slow and i am trying to fix the issue so it can go back to moving fast. I did a dism restore health scan and received the report below:


The result from a dism...............restorehealth scan was Error 0x800f0906 .... the source file could not be downloaded. Use the "source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature.  Any help please!! Thanks! :inlove:  :inlove:  :inlove:

I would like you to check the system integrity of your Windows OS installation.

  • Please right click the Windows logo (formerly the start button) at the bottom left of your screen.
  • Please select  "Command Prompt (Admin)"
  • Please type the following command and press the <Enter> key: sfc /scannow  (Please note that there is a space between 'sfc" and "/scannow".)
  • It should take about 20 minutes to run, if there are no serious errors.
  • If the System File Checker reports that some errors were fixed, but some remain; please reboot your computer and run the System File Checker from an Administrator Command Prompt, again.
  • If the System File Checker again reports that some errors were fixed, but some remain, please reboot your computer and run it a third time.
  • If "Resource Integrity Violations" (errors) are reported that could not be corrected, or were not corrected after a third SFC run, then please navigate to the folder: C:\Windows\Logs\CBS and copy the file "cbs.log" to your desktop immediately.  I am asking you do that because that file is dynamic, so I want to be able to examine a copy that is unchanged from the time that the System File Checker was run.
  • If there are errors that couldn't be corrected, let me know and I will provide you with instructions as to how to upload the file

Getting dism to work using the /source tag to work is problematic.

Good luck with it.

If you get it to actually work please post you results.

Learn to take screenshots & add them to your posts. :thumbup2:


Learn to use Google Search.  :busy:

Make full system images to restore to if your computer goes bonkers.
