How to Run SFC scannow in Windows 10
To run the System File Checker (SFC) scan in Windows 10, follow these steps:

Press the Windows key + X to open the Power User menu, then select "Command Prompt (Admin)" from the menu.

In the Command Prompt window, type "sfc /scannow" (without quotes) and press Enter.

The SFC scan will now start. This process can take some time, so be patient and wait for it to complete.

Once the scan is complete, you will see a message indicating whether any issues were found and whether they were fixed.

If the scan found and fixed any issues, you will need to restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

Note: If you are unable to run the SFC scan in Windows 10 because of a "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation" error, you can try using the DISM tool to repair the system files. To do this, follow these steps:

Open the Command Prompt (Admin) as described above.

In the Command Prompt window, type "dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth" (without quotes) and press Enter.

The DISM tool will now start repairing the system files. This process can take some time, so be patient and wait for it to complete.

Once the repair process is complete, try running the SFC scan again using the steps described above.
