Try running it from System Recovery Options Command Line: SFC /SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot

I would not limit it with verifyonly. You want the files repaired if any are found. You may need to run it up to 3 times.

The tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command also shows how to manually replace files if necessary.

If files cannot be repaired the next step to consider is a Repair Install.
