Windows 7: Corrupted "sfc /scannow" files on all computers

Corrupted "sfc /scannow" files on all computers

Hi
We have 4 computers with "sfc/ scannow" errors...the corrupted files and messages are basically the same across the Windows 7/8.1 platform, which to me points to a software issue. I am up to date with all MS updates and my program software. I have posted two attachments from 2 Windows 7 (64bit) computers, "sfcdetails.txt" files. Is it possible to decode the particular culprit programs? I spent hours working with http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1538-sfc-scannow-command-system-file-checker.html on this site and trying different options on 1(one) Windows 7 computer, only to check the other computers we have...all basically the same descriptions of errors, including 2 Windows 8.1 Pro machines. Repair not possible of the sfc files, I am getting little beyond my comfort zone!
The last major programs to be install were McAfee security software, and an update to Boxcryptor and AntiLogger.
In anticipation.
Thanks

It`s an issue with windows update, basically, don`t install any update that says "Resolves issues in Windows"

Use Gokay`s advice.

Hi GokAy
Thank you for the link. That has corrected 3 of the 4 computers. It is much appreciated! You saved me from what I thought was going to be hours of rebuilding.
But for some reason the procedure would not repair the HP ENVY 8.1 Pro 64bit. I searched the Windows 8 forum, but found no real link.
I will continue to work on that computer.
Thanks once again

There is also a fix for Win8. Go to the link I provided earlier and see post #1.

If you still get the problem after fix, report for an expert to see.

Hi GokAy
I apologize for my tardiness. The link worked for the ENVY laptop and now we have 4 platforms with no corruption of the sfc system.
I thank you again for your help. Great work!

Hey, glad it worked. I am just giving the links though. The credit belongs to someone else.

I have two computers that showed this problem due to KB3022345. Both of them returned to a clean SFC after simply uninstalling KB3022345. I never ran the fixit tool. Does anyone know why this is? Is it reasonable to think that uninstalling the update would restore a corrupt file?
