    All of these commands can run in a script and create a file on the desktop.
    The script may have a popup when it completes indicating that a report is on the desktop.

    Sfc /scannow
    dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    sfc /scannow
    chkdsk /scan

    Hi @Bonus12 ,

    The SFC (System File Checker) does not provide a silent mode I'm afraid. You can either script it and have it run by the Task Scheduler, or simply run the script on demand.
