  • I just wanted to share my experience with Windows 10 and how easy it is to fix trivial errors.

    First you want to check the integrity of Windows 10
    Open Command Prompt in Administrator mode, then run the command

    1. sfc /scannow

    For this to work correct your Windows update must work and you need internet connection for Windows update to fix eventual errors.

    A bit more complicated is the dism commands, but you need to run these command on a regular basis to insure your install.
    Open Command Prompt in Administrator mode, then run the command and I run them in this order:

    1. Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanupdism /online /Cleanup-Image /AnalyzeComponentStoreDism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealthDism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    These commands do take some time to run!

    Last run the

    1. sfc /scannow

    again to activate Windows Update

    2 Logfiles are created with these commands:

    1. findstr /C:"[SR] Re" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >> %USERPROFILE%\desktop\sfc-repairs.txtfindstr /C:"[SR] Cannot repair member file" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >> %USERPROFILE%\desktop\sfc-errors.txt

    open them with these commands

    1. Notepad.exe %USERPROFILE%\desktop\sfc-repairs.txt
    2. Notepad.exe %USERPROFILE%\desktop\sfc-errors.txt

    That's it, even if you think that your Windows is running flawless, this will expose any error and try to fix it.

  • nice sum up



    Only dead fish swim with the stream.
    Don't discuss with idiots. They only drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience there.

    This is ten percent luck,
    Twenty percent skill,
    Fifteen percent concentrated power of will,
    Five percent pleasure,
    Fifty percent pain,
    And a hundred percent reason to remember the name!
