One of the useful tools that Microsoft has introduced into Windows is the ability to run the System File Checker to check the stability of basic system files. We have already discussed the System File Checker. One of the most effective ways to run this tool or SFC is to do it in safe mode or during the boot process. This may be an option to consider if you determine that your system file was not successfully analyzed. Booting does not connect system files to other Windows services, so it may be easier for the user to successfully complete execution and replace files.
