But what about issues in the future that aren't benign when you have a true system file corruption.

I haven't had the time to read all the threads I've found on this KB update sfc issue but I'm presuming MS will release some sort of update patch that will correct their wrong doings?

They already did, KB3068708. Few have reported it didn't fix the issue, and uninstalling both KB3022345 and KB3068708 stopped the corruption warnings. However, it may still be possible to use the SFCfix The Tech Cookbook – Windows 7 update (KB3022345) causing corrupt files. You have to try really, my systems were all fixed before KB3068708.

After thinking/looking into this some more themorus & GokAy have the best solution for me. I followed this post to see what issues were being logged in cbs.log. It's all about telemetry and the best fix appears to definitely be the one suggested by themorus. I'll likely run this utility soon and work with their forum admins. It's nice of them to provide this service! I'm not sure exactly what the utc.app.json telemetry.ASM stuff is for but I suppose I should look into getting it fixed. Thanks again for the help and suggestions.

Welp, I guess I'm going to proceed with the sfcfix utility since still noticing some emails that go into the ether.

I also am seeing a ton of these event 6281's in my eventlog.



NM, I looked into these errors and it appears to be a realtek audio issue. I'll admit I'm kinda sketched out after failing the sfc /scannow check.

Did you re-run sfc /scannow after you attached the CBS.log file? No expert but seems they were fixed? You don't have any other corruption.

Re-run sfc and see if all good.

Link to SFCFix.exe is good and same I use. When you run SFCFix.exe by Niemiero have your windows cd in drive and it will find and replace corrupt files. I you need windows 7 cd I have win7 aio ISO you can download.
