Yes David I know what you mean it is a vast area that is a mystery to me too one needs to be a programmer to know what all that gear is see this https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/928228

Now I was rather hoping the chkdsk with the /f and /r switches would correct any corruption and that is what it seems like to me. Try it if you haven't already and if there is still a problem or two then we might need to ask for help.

The other alternative is to save your data and then reinstall or you could try this Startup Repair I know it says start up repair for non booting machines but it might just fix whatever it missing on yours.

Thanks. Where do the /f and /r switches live and what do I do with them? I may end up with a clean install of the whole installation but this could make the cure worse than the illness. In the past I've never had much luck with Windows repairing itself. I am weighing up whether I might hang on till Windows 10 but that might just carry over whatever the problem is. Equally, an updated Adobe CC desktop installation might do the trick but I don't know when the next update will be. Next time I get the phantom "core" empty window, I'll try to track down the errant application using regedit. This is the first problem I've had for some time.

David just follow the tutorial -
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2 - I use the option 2 because I prefer that way.

Now when the command prompt after typing cmd is opened make sure you run it as admin (right click) .

Just don`t let this Adobe CC to run at startup, I`ll bet the windows never pops up again.

Your sfc comes up bad because you installed a bad update, this is my list of updates I do not install and my sfc is perfect.

There are many threads in updates and activation about it, read up over there

Start by removing KB3022345, then run sfc again.

The problem with stopping CC at start up is that Photoshop CC runs on a subscription and I think this is checked every month so stopping CC might break the validation process. But I am still not really sure what the "core" refers to. There is no "core" or "coresync" running at startup. Next time the core window appears I will try to track its origin down using regedit.

When you open Photoshop, it should call "home", so stopping it in start up shouldn't cause an issue. But this Adobe you are dealing with lol

Removing the Windows Update has led to much slower boot ups - hanging on the black Windows splash screen. Will go back to the errant update I think.
