  • Launch Command Prompt in administrator mode. For that, simply type in command prompt in the search box and hit enter. Right click on Command Prompt from the search results and choose Run as administrator.



  • Run the following command in your Command Prompt. It might take some time for the scan to complete.

Once the verification phase is over, you can possibly have either of the following 3 outcomes:

  2. System file errors are found and fixed – If this is the case, you need not worry. Even though some of your system files were initially corrupted, they are now successfully repaired by windows.
