Did the sfc /scannow as you suggested ...

this was the outcome pls see first attachment ...
for better measure i also ran the 'sfc /verifyonly' see second attachment

Corrupted files found in both scans.

What is next now to repair it?

You should probably boot safe mode and then run the command from there.
the /scannow switch should fix the problems it encounters. If it didn't you should try from safe mode.
Safe Mode

booted PC this time from safe mode with command prompt.

ran sfc /verifyonly
Report comes with same error message: Windows Resource Protection found integrity violations. With the same example as the attachments above


then ran sfc /scannow
Report came with same error message:
Windows Resource Protection found corrupted files but was unable to fix them. Details are included in the CBS.Log Windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.Log.
For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.Log

What could I try next now?
