Hi Paras Suri,


Method 1: If a Windows Resource Protection (WRP) file is missing or is corrupted, Windows may not behave as expected. Run System File Checker (SFC) scan to fix any corrupt system files. To do this, follow the steps mentioned in the link below:

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Thanks for the reply.

When I type sfc /scannow under command prompt window, it shows the following messages.

"Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart windows and run sfc again."

I did restart and type again sfc /scannow but it shows the same message as above.


Please help me how to resolve this. Many Thanks!
