It's very normal for Windows 10 users to face the consequences of corrupt system files. There are many causes for these machine files to get infected, and most of the time, it's almost impossible to patch the corrupted files manually.
Repair Windows 10 By Fixing Corrupted Files - HowToKR
DISM (Deployment Image Servicing and Management) is a tool that can fix corrupted system files quite instantly. You can use this tool through command prompt by following the given steps:
Step 1: First, run the Command Prompt as Administrator by searching for it in the Start Menu by the keyword ‘cmd’ or ‘command prompt.
Step 2: Type the DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth command and hit ENTER. (Note: If it shows an error, then make sure you launched the command prompt as administrator. And if you still can’t run the command, then check if you’ve copied it correctly.)
Step 3: Now, you have to wait for the repair process to be at 100%. It may take 10-15 minutes to complete, so be patient.
Most probably, your issue will resolve when you restart your PC after running the DISM command. However, if the problem is still there, then move on to the next step.
SFC (System File Checker) is also a Windows application that checks and fixes any corrupted files on your PC. You can use this tool by following the following steps: Important: You must run the DISM tool in Windows 10 before you move to the SFC tool.
Step 1:To use the SFC tool, launch the command prompt on your PC as Administrator.
Step 2:Now, type sfc /scannow command in the CMD window and press ENTER.
Step 3: The system scan will now initiate, and it will take a couple of minutes to complete.
When the scan completes, you’ll get one of the following messages.
Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
This message means the SFC tool didn’t find any corrupted files in your system. So, your Windows 10 OS is in excellent condition.
Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.
If this is the message that is appearing in front of you, then you might have to run the SFC scan by booting the Windows 10 in Safe Mode.
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. Details are included in the CBS.Log %WinDir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log.
This message states that whatever issue your Windows PC is facing, has been resolved. So, restart your PC, and hopefully, it will work just fine.

3. Windows Startup Repair
You can perform Startup Repair on Windows 10 if you think your Computer would take longer than normal to boot. However, getting to this option needs some effort on your behalf. Don't worry, follow these steps and you'll get it done in a matter of minutes:
Step 1: Press and hold the SHIFT key on your keyboard and click the Restart button in power options.
Step 2: Now, on the boot screen, select the Troubleshoot option.

Step 4: Finally, select Startup Repair to initiate the repair process.
It will take some time for the Windows 10 startup repair to fix your problem, so now, you have no option but to wait. Also, if it says that it wasn’t able to fix your problem, then there’s a possibility that there wasn’t anything wrong with the Windows 10 OS on your PC.
4. Windows System Restore
Using the Windows Restore feature, you can revert the condition of your PC to a previous point in time. However, to use this feature, it is vital that you’ve enabled System Restore on Windows 10 and created a restore point in the past. And if there isn’t any restore point, then, unfortunately, you can’t use this feature.
However, if you’re lucky enough to have any restore point, then you can very well use Windows System Restore to repair Windows 10 on PC. Also, it could be possible that Windows OS or some app might have created a restore point automatically, which you can use.

If, by any chance, none of the above approaches has worked for you, you can restore Windows 10 on your PC. By doing so, you can take your Computer back to its factory default state by reinstalling Windows 10. This means that all phones, except those that have been preinstalled with Windows 10, will be disabled. However, you will have to decide whether or not you want to retain your personal data or delete all of it. And even if you choose to keep your data, I 'd still suggest that you back up every critical file as a precaution. It's one of the best ways to get rid of any malware and repair anything that's wrong with your PC.
