In this tutorial, I’ll be showing you how to scan for and fix corrupt system files in windows 10.

System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files. If a Windows Resource Protection (WRP) file is missing or is corrupted, Windows may not behave as expected. For example, some Windows functions may not work, or Windows may crash. Run the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to scan your system files and to repair missing or corrupted system files.

Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, type Command Prompt or cmd in the Search box, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: sfc /scannow. The sfc /scannow command will scan all protected system files, and replace corrupted files with a cached copy that is located in a compressed folder.

Do not close this Command Prompt window until the verification is 100% complete. The scan results will be shown after this process is finished. After the process is finished, you may receive one of the following messages: Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations. This means that you do not have any missing or corrupted system files.
