Corrupted files and removing/replacing them

So after using my PC for a good 4 months, I have come to realize I have lost control certain abilities. such as looking at properties of files, controlling windows defender, being able to change any of my system security passwords, or changing certain files even though the account is an administrator. I ran an SFC scan and it was unable to fix. (the log is attached). After looking at the log, you can see multiple corrupted files in the directory of \C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\ but when I try to use Dir /s to search for the file/folder, it comes blank. If yall have any advice in how I could remove these corrupted files, that would be helpful.



Thanks in advanced,

~Jon

Consider performing an in-place, upgrade / repair. Upgrading Windows 10 by installing it over top of itself.
There is a pretty good article here https://neosmart.net/wiki/windows-10-repair-installation/ just ignore the first couple paragraphs where they are promoting their repair products and scroll down to the meat of the article.
If you do not have the installation media....
The installation media can be obtain through this resource.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO/?tduid=(3d3a835c62d275ae770225c6aa1c4972)(256380)(2459594)(TnL5HPStwNw-WaTVja5C7z2Vs7q82apCPg)()
Once you have the ISO, you can use ImgBurn to burn it to a DVD or Rufus to burn it to a USB ThumbDrive, or simply mount the ISO from within Windows 10 and run setup.exe from there.
Choose upgrade and make sure the box is ticked to obtain updates as part of the upgrade process.
