Make an SFC scan like I told you in my early post.
Run up to 4 times if errors are found
If they are found but cannot be repaired, show me the log

Open another elevated Command Prompt and paste this command into it:

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log
This will show all the files you want to see in the Command Prompt window.
Since that window is not very practical for a detailed study, you want to paste the content into a Notepad, Wordpad or Word file.
For that you right click on the Command Prompt window (any place is good) and click Select All. Then you right click anywhere in the window. Now this whole text is stored on the clipboard and you can paste it into a document file (e.g. Notepad) where you can analyze it.

If we cannot make the repairs from the log then you will have to

Then install.
Not much else to to do, if you want to fix the problem
