Windows 7: sfc /scannow "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt.."

22 Nov 2014   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
sfc /scannow "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt.."

Hello there!

Ran sfc /scannow then got a result stating that 'Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them."

My laptop has been running slow a couple days now. Not sure how to proceed. Please advise!

Thanks a lot.. :)

Run the SFC three times. If it still cannot repair all the files, and the problems seem serious, a reinstall may be required.
