    Make sure windows is fully updated until 'No New Important Updates are Found' (this may require multiple restarts and multiple 'check for updates'), including Internet Explorer (even if you use a different web browser).

    If you continue to have problems please review the following links and follow the instructions below to try and resolve this issue.

    1. Open a command prompt as administrator
    2. Type:
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    - Please, mind the spaces in this line! It takes some time until it starts (minutes), and the whole process is like 30 minutes long
    3. Type:
    sfc /scannow
    - again, mind the space.
    4. Restart the computer

    If you continue to have problems:
