Almost couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that such a service existed on the internet - so kind souls do exist after all Anyway down to business: basically the problem happened when my graphics driver started crashing randomly awhile, blacking out the monitor, and then resetting back to normal in a split second. The error message that appeared afterwards always had something to do with "Nvidia Driver kernel crashed" etc. but this thread is not about that (or it wouldn't be here on this subforum!), it's about what happened after. After googling about Nvidia drivers, I thought the graphics glitch might have had to do with my current windows being unstable since my graphics driver is already fully updated, so I checked for windows updates instead. And that's when I realized my machine might be in bigger trouble than I thought it was - I couldn't even search for new updates! The dreaded error code 80070246 pops out everytime I try to do so, and so here I am, stuck scratching my head, and looking futilely for solutions. I've tried SFCfix.exe and here's the log. View attachment SFCFix.txt I've also tried running command prompt's "sfc/scannow" but received this quaint little message "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service". So finally google (bless you Larry and Sergey) got me here, to the last and hopefully best resort. Here's the CBS log, perhaps you could do a little magic with it: View attachment 6336 Once again, thanks so much, and happy holidays!
