sfc /scannow unable to fix corrupted files

Like the titlte says. I ran the sfc /scannow command, but Windows was unable to fix the corrupted files. What do I do now?

See if you have this update installed, if so uninstall it and run sfc again.

KB3022345

This update was supposed to fix the issue.

KB3068708

But I don`t have either installed, and no issues at all.

Shamelessly bumping my own thread because I got no answers before.

The problem is not many can translate those logs and I'm one of the many.
I did find this in your log.

Reboot and run sfc /scannow again. Does it find anymore problems?

The error implied in the report relates to a multi-language problem.

What do you have here

You said you have problems, but do you have any problems with this PC OTHER THAN this sfc thing?

I have a PC where I run this and it says "corrupt" then I run it again and it says "fixed" then I run it again and it says "corrupt" ad nauseum i.e. forever (think I did this 5 or 6 times).

In the end I decided MS was messing with me because otherwise the PC works perfectly. Given they have borked sfc /scannow in the past I'm not wasting any more time worrying about it!
