You can not be serious when recommend reinstall the so only because poppeeper froze the app, i were thought you fixed the app.Jeff wrote: ↑Tue Feb 04, 2020 7:27 pmI wouldn't ignore SFC/DISM reporting an error. Especially if they cause a similar hiccup while running that you see due to POP Peeper. I would say this is almost certainly the cause of the issue.
I don't know enough about how sfc works, but perhaps one explanation for what you're seeing is that the "offline" mode only checks Windows system files that are essential to load/run the OS. POP Peeper may call Windows APIs that use non-essential files and that's where the problem is. And perhaps SFC only checks files that have attempted to be accessed (this seems counter-intuitive to me, but I'm just trying to apply a possible explanation to the behavior you're reporting).
So what files does SFC/DISM report problems for? Hopefully the list isn't too large...
And I might as well suggest this: Try installing Windows from scratch. Get the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft so you can get the latest version that they've released:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softwar ... /windows10
looks like they have the latest Win10 1909 (although, I don't think you've mentioned what OS you're using)
