Fixing Any Damage Error In Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10 With SFC



System File Checker or sfc.exe is a utility in Microsoft Windows located in the C: \ Windows \ System32 folder. This utility is useful for scanning and repairing corrupt / deleted Windows system files. The SFC itself is available by default from Windows Vista (Windows 7, Windows 8 / 8.1, Windows 10 compatible).
Such as startup damage, bluescreen, Windows hang / stuck, and so on.


Before using SFC, it's a good idea to set up your Windows installation DVD / ISO first, because when SFC scans the system files, SFC will prompt the installation disc you use to install Windows on your PC. In addition, to be able to run SFC, you need administartor privileges where this privilege can be obtained by right clicking on the application you want to open and select Run As Administrator.

 Before you use this utility you better close all the applications you are open, because this process is very time consuming and your computer resource.

Step 1: If you are opening another app, save and close first.

Step 2: Open the Start menu and select All Programs => Accessories.

Step 3: Find Command Prompt then right click and select Run As Administrator. Enter your password and click Yes or Continue when prompted for an administrator password.

Step 4: Currently the command prompt window should open with administrator privileges. You can run SFC by typing "sfc / scannow" and press Enter. After pressing Enter, SFC will start scanning your system and searching for damaged or missing files. You will see a message like the following that indicates successful SFC run. 

After the process is complete, SFC will give the result of whether there is a file system that successfully repaired.

"Verification 100% complete."

The results you get may vary, depending on whether the damage is found or not. If SFC does not find an error, then the following message will be displayed.
"Windows Resource Protection didn’t find any integrity violations."

If SFC finds the damage and manages to fix it. The following message indicates where the system is located.
"Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log"

However if SFC finds the damage and can not fix it, the following message will be displayed.
"Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log"

Step 5: Close the command prompt window when the process is complete and restart your computer. Check again if the damage still exists.
