So can anyone assist me with this corrupted file? I tried to get Microsoft to help and they wanted 99 dollars which is bank robbery in my book . So basically The only way I was able to fix the problem was by refreshing my computer the corrupted file was WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/LOGFILES/srt/srt.TXT
Also known as the endless automatic repair loop fortunately for me I was able to get into safe mode. So now that my computer is working I want to know how to deal with the file without paying 99 dollars
It's still in my computer




Also noted Ive noticed many other people have been having problems with this individual file for some reason.
I investigated the coding and the files contained nothing at all at least from what ive seen. I can't figure out why my computer is working when I did factory reset and it did nothing.
It seems to be that srt.txt is misplaced somewhere because whenever I delete the file so the computer regenerates a new method the file is always empty so.

You first need to run sfc/scannow if it comes back with corrupt/missing files you then need to run DISM.exe both parts.the first part is DISM.exe /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth press enter.This takes a while so be patient.After it finishes and says it has found some you then run the second part: DISM.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth enter. Note that there are spaces before each forward slash in each step.This fixed everything for me.Let me know! :thumbsup:
