DISM RestoreHealth fails with Error: 0x80240021 even after doing Component Cleanup

Windows RT

I apologize for the long post in advance. I am detailing all the steps I took to fix this from previously asked questions. I am having problems with Windows Update getting stuck on "checking for updates". I tried running the Windows Update Troubleshooter and it says it fixed some errors, but the problem continues, and it seems to be fixing the same errors every time I run it. I am trying to implement the solution suggested by user rboy in this thread: http://superuser.com/questions/922261/windows-8-1-stuck-on-checking-for-updates?rq=1 I ran sfc/scannow and it gave me this message: C:WINDOWSsystem32>sfc /scannow Beginning system scan. This process will take some time. Beginning verification phase of system scan. Verification 100% complete. Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windirLogsCBSCBS.log. For example C:WindowsLogsCBSCBS.log. Note that logging is currently not supported in offline servicing scenarios. I searched for a solution online and followed the answer in this post, that suggested running Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup command before Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth to fix the sfc issue. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-update/dism-online-restore-health-function-gets-error/4183685b-7d52-458c-b818-045369b98380 While component cleanup finished successfully, RestoreHealth ended with the following error: C:WINDOWSsystem32>Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool Version: 6.3.9600.17031 Image Version: 6.3.9600.17031 [==========================100.0%==========================] Error: 0x80240021 DISM failed. No operation was performed. For more information, review the log file. The DISM log file can be found at C:WINDOWSLogsDISMdism.log Here are the DISM and SFC logs: https://1drv.ms/f/s!Avzd_Hgdj4WQgQEePXNh_Ptaj16c It seems there is a loop here. DISM relies on Windows Update to repair the windows image, with Windows Update in turn being the broken component. From the CBS>log file, it seems the process fails because of no response from Windows Update. I am running Windows 8.1 that I upgraded to from Windows 8.0, for which I have an OEM license. I do not have any media to reinstall Windows. I am stuck. Any solution would be greatly appreciated.

Mouse over pop up box is black

Windows RT

When I hover over an item like a file or icon in the system tray, the little dialog box that pops up with a description is white text highlighted in black. It used to be normal black text on a white background. This is very difficult to read, especially when it occurs in the system tray at the edge of the screen. What setting did I mess up, and how do I change it back to normal?

BSOD Stop Code: KERNEL SECURITY CHECK FAILURE & others

Windows RT

Over the weekend I installed a new gpu (r9 390 - gtx 1070) and have since been experiencing multiple game crashes and bsod's. I have went through my hardware and reinstalled the NVidia drivers, a few other things, cleared cmos, and now I'm pretty much at a loss. I have DMP files and such in any hopes I can get some help before I call it quits and reinstall windows. https://1drv.ms/f/s!ApqxM_Ejlv_mgycN1lFycZcdvkDp

Some games stobe a black screen when set to full screen on my main monitor.

Windows RT

Hello, I've encountered a rather vexing problem recently and I'd appreciate some help solving it. Some games will strobe between a black screen and whatever they're supposed to be displaying when set to full screen on my main monitor. Not all games are afflicted by this, and for the games that are afflicted, it doesn't happen if they're set to windowed mode, set to full screen on a different monitor, or partially misaligned, so they spill onto another monitor while in full screen. It's also worth noting that this does not seem to be a purely graphical glitch as no possessing seems to occur while the screen is black. Unfortunately, this does not produce a visible error message. The three games that I've had this problem with are The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth, SteamWorld Heist, and Space Run Galaxy. So far, I've tried verifying their local cache, updating my graphics drivers, updating windows, restarting windows, doing an in place upgrade, sfc /scannow, and clearing most of my temp files. I was able to get Isaac working properly, once, by messing with which monitor is set as the main one, but it did not persist through restarting Isaac and I was not able to replicate my success on a second attempt. I'm running windows 10 and have an NVidia gtx 970. Any help would be greatly appreciated in this matter.

Application Error 0xc0000005

Windows RT

How can I fix this? This just started a few days ago. I scanned for a virus using two different antivirus software, nothing found so it's more than likely not that. I tried restoring my computer back to the original restore point in March of 2016. Still getting the error. I tried reassigning the registries to their original state as well and I'm still getting this error. I've ran out of ideas at this point. This error pops up whenever I try to launch any game application. Apps like OBS, Chrome, Discord, etc. are still working. Most of my apps aren't on my C drive but on a separate hybrid drive yet it's still only game applications that are getting this error. When I restart my computer, the game app crashes first before the error pops up and I am able to see problems starting when it began accessing the temp roaming data files.

charging issue after last update

Windows RT

after updating my laptop there seems to be an issue with charging it. It charges fine when on and can retain its charge normally, but whenever its turned off or in sleep mode it doesnt charge at all. This means that whenever i leave the charge down to 15% or so and i plug it in to charge for college the next day its battery is even lower, unless i want a bright loud fan of a laptop in my room. This only happened immediately after the update so i suspect its related to the issue, any one else finding this issue?

Still Unable to Left Click on Start Menu, But Right Click Works Fine

Windows RT

I ran the System File Checker as suggested; it detected no problems. I have two PCs, and I use the same Microsoft Username and Password on both. On the one that I upgraded to Windows 10 most recently, I have no problem. On the one that I upgraded about 9 months before that (it is a Samsung laptop), I can only access right-click menu (which is equivalent to entering Win X from the keyboard). Actually, this is not a problem since I'm able to do everything merely by accessing any .exe that I need straight from the folder C:Program Files (x86), or sometimes C:Program Files. I also use the command prompt frequently, so I am quite familiar with getting around without the colorful left-click start menu. However, this clearly means that something did not install correctly. Could this be some sort of flaw in the registry changes when I installed Windows 10, or could something be wrong in the C:WindowsSystem32 folder? . . . Thanks for any assistance you could provide
