C:\WINDOWS\system32>Chkdsk C: /f
The type of the file system is NTFS.
Cannot lock current drive.
 
Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
process.  Would you like to schedule this volume to be
checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

When you executed Chkdsk command you will be prompted to schedule a disk error checking on reboot type Y letter and press Enter key to do so.

 

Execute the bellow commands one at a time.

Elevated permissions are required to run DISM.
Use an elevated command prompt to complete these tasks.

Sfc /scannow

I use a program called Wisecare365 Pro which works very well for me.

Any program like this has risks, like any drug you have to weigh the pros vs cons.

It could fix many or most of your problems or it could make things worse (highly unlikely but you never know.)

I have never had a problem with it.

You will not see anything like that at the previous post recommended on any reputable forum, they are at best a gimmick and at worse a danger to the operating systems registry, it is an old article but the author is still highly respected and tbh I've not seen it explained better than at the miekiemoes' Blog here
