Same here, no "errors" or "repairs" in the cbs log...not going to sweat it, and further analysis is beyond my pay grade

@nine9: Welcome SevenForums BTW... stick around, it's a great site, well run/designed/maintained & lots of people MUCH smarter than me... it's my #1 go to for all things 7.

I've also ran a SFC Scannow which tells me that Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them, see attachment for details

Seems KB3004394 is the culprit...

Uninstalled KB3004394, rebooted & ran sfc /scannow & Voila!

So uninstall that specific update and hide it, until Microsoft fixes it?

That's what I did. Just saw a thread @Wincert several users reporting that installing KB3004394 prevented ANY further updates from installing, so apparently you have to uninstall it anyway.

I uninstalled it, and now SFC scan finds no integrity violations.

I also checked event viewer and found:

The Cryptographic Services service failed to initialize the Catalog Database. The ESENT error was: -1305.

It was timed stamped at same time as my uninstall of KB 3004394.

Wonder how Microsoft will fix it for pretty much all WIndows users who update it if you cannot receive updates until you uninstall that one. No one, but a few isolated people, like in this message thread, are going to do that.

Someone in that Microsft answer site wrote that this update problem basically made all Windows files unsigned.

First thing that popped into my head is that some antivirus programs might start treating Windows system files as malware threats if they are unsigned.

This could be huge.

Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files...
...and was unable to fix some of them. I get this error when I ran a system file check. I looked in the CBS log file but it's pretty vast and I'm not sure what I should be looking for exactly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
