        • I ran SFC.exe and it reported some error it could not fix.  Is there any other software package (preferably freeware) that you can recommend that would be able to fix these errors.  I do not understand the log file this program produces which is quite extensive but it appears to me that the problem might be in Windows Defender.
        • I’m running Windows 10 Home version.  2019-09 Cumulative update for Windows 10 Version 1903 for x64-based systems (KB4524147).  Successfully installed on 10/4/2019
        • This is the error message the system produced at the conclusion of the run.Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.

          For online repairs, details are included in the CBS log file located at

          windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For offline

          repairs, details are included in the log file provided by the /OFFLOGFILE flag.

        In an elevate command prompt run “chkdsk /f” (without quotes). Reboot when asked.

        After reboot, in as elevated command prompt run:
        DISM /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

        When that is finished, rerun “sfc /scannow” (without quotes).
