On your next system restart, the chkdsk command will perform its operation. This should fix the issue. If the problem still persists, try the next method.

This method should solve the issue. If you are still facing the error, try the next method.

 

 

3. Run System File Checker

We will check for more corrupt files and try to fix them using System File Checker or SFC scan. SFC scan is an inbuilt Windows 10 tool, which searches for corrupt system files. If there are any corrupt files on your computer, this scan fixes them as well. Corrupt files are one of the reasons behind the error. Follow the steps to perform this method.

 

Step 1. After booting into safe mode you have to open Command Prompt as Administrator. To do this, go to Cortana and type Command Prompt in the search area.

4. Perform Disk Cleanup

DISM or Deployment Image & Service Management scan is another inbuilt Windows 1o troubleshooter tool that searches and fixes corrupt system files. Basically, DISM fixes the corrupt files which were not caught by SFC scan or the corrupt files which didn’t let SFC scan perform its operation properly. Follow the steps to perform this method.

And if there are any pending updates, download and install them. Windows Update can be accessed from Settings.

 

7. Use Default Windows 10 Theme

Many users have reported that nothing worked for them and simply using the default Windows 10 theme fixed the problem. This can happen because unsaved themes are known to cause system file errors. So, in this method, we will try to fix the issue by setting the default Windows 10 theme as active. Follow the steps to perform this method.

 

Step 1. If you are unable to sign in on your computer, boot into Safe Mode.

 

Step 2. Now, right-click on an empty space on your desktop screen and select Personalize.
