Probably a false positive.  I can see from the log:

that it is complaining about FreeCommander.  I checked the (English) FreeCommander downloads page with virustotal.com and it came up clean.

You can submit the file to Microsoft and see what they say:



You can also just uninstall FreeCommander and see if that fixes the problem.


This error:

Error: (12/26/2019 03:37:47 PM) (Source: ESENT) (EventID: 455) (User: )
Description: svchost (2644,R,98) TILEREPOSITORYS-1-5-18: Error -1023 (0xfffffc01) occurred while opening logfile C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\TileDataLayer\Database\EDB.log.


is caused by a Microsoft mistake.  Easiest fix for it it to create two new folders:





I can make a fixlist for you to do that if you would like.


Let's check your system files:


Open an elevated command prompt:


(If you open an elevated Command Prompt properly it will say Administrator: Command Prompt in the margin at the top of the window)

Once you have an elevated command prompt:


 DISM  /Online  /Cleanup-Image  /RestoreHealth

 (I use two spaces so you can be sure to see where one space goes.)
Hit Enter.  This will take a while (10-20 minutes) to complete.  Once the prompt returns:

Reboot.  Open an elevated Command Prompt again and type (with an Enter after the line):

sfc  /scannow

This will also take a few minutes.  

When it finishes it will say one of the following:

Windows did not find any integrity violations (a good thing)
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and repaired them (a good thing)
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some (or all) of them (not a good thing)

If you get the last result then type:

findstr  /c:"[SR]"  \windows\logs\cbs\cbs.log  >  %UserProfile%\desktop\junk.txt

Hit Enter.  Then type::

notepad %UserProfile%\desktop\junk.txt

Hit Enter.

 Copy the text from notepad and paste it into a reply.
