  • Patch Lady – SFC Scannow issue

    Posted on July 10th, 2019 at 22:39 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Spotted this over on the Bleeping computer forums:

    Starting today, Windows 10 users are finding that the /sfc scannow feature is no longer working and that it states it found, but could not fix, corrupted Windows Defender PowerShell files.

    Instead, it appears to be related to the latest definition updates for Windows Defender, which were released this morning and are version 1.297.823.0.

    So for now ignore this.  In fact I remember a time a bit back when it did this and we were told (as I recall) that these commands were for advanced users only (Yes I giggled a bit at that statement given that we we’re told to use these commands to fix issues) . It took a while for them to fix it the last time.
