They are normal as well.

Perhaps I should explain a little
Your MGADiag report shows
Code:
Validation Code: 50
 Cached Online Validation Code: N/A, hr = 0x80070005
The Code 50 simply means that the system has failed Validation

The 0x80070005 error code is an 'Access Denied' type error - possibly because a file that should be open for write access has been locked, or possibly because permissions have been modified inappropriately - or simply the folder has been moved.

Let's see if this helps....




Open WindowsExplorer (Computer)

Navigate to the C:\Windows folder

Find the System32 sub-folder and right-click on it

select Properties



Clear the 'blob'from the 'Read-only (Only applies to files infolder)' box by clicking on it until it's plain white.

Click on Apply.



Make sure thatthe radio button for 'Apply changes to thisfolder, subfolders and files' is set, and click OK.



Accept theAdministrator prompt. After a couple of seconds, you'll be told there is anerror - click on the 'Ignore all' button.



Wait for it tofinish - it could take a couple of minutes.



OK out, and exitWindows Explorer.



Reboot twice



Post a newMGADiag report.

So I double checked to see if I did everything right, and it automatically goes back to read only.

No - Folders cannot have a read-only attribute
It goes back to the 'blob' which is an undefined state. Hopefully, the files within the folder, though, will have now been set properly

Please post a new MGADiag report.

In an Elevated Command Prompt, run the following commands, and post the results.
