Just curious do you guys always run SFC /scannow after installing new/old driver?.

    I think it's the "Windows found corrupt files" line that sets off the OCD of wanting a perfect install

    If they are not corrupt, and are in fact just newer versions, then it should say

    yah I curbed my OCD I use to check Eventviewer every hour, I curbed that down to like once day for most part some times I go few days with checking it.

    OCD is cruel mistress,among other things..

    for it to say something other then corrupt, it reqiure them to do some house cleaning... unless it forced changed no one wants or cares for it wont happen.

    lol yup, I don't care too much about event viewer, that's more or less impossible to keep error free, and I have tried to cure some of them in the past and failed, and they reappear on clean installs, so I just ignore them now

    perfmon /rel

    from RUN gives me a general idea of the health of the machine, and any issues I think I need to look at

    Other than that, if the machine is running well, I tend to ignore it, and now will ignore SFC too lol

    Wow thanks I thought I was going mad doing all these scans every time I install a new driver.

    I will also stop doing SFC scans, I thought I did it for good but didn't know it would replace the new files with old thank you for this point.

    Now I will reinstall my driver because I already did SFC so it must have replaced new driver files with old.

    I was the OCD guy for a while until I got busy and didn't have as much time to "fix"things and realized nothing bad was happening so I eventually just gave it up unless I had an issue that obviously needed attention. lol

    DISM can really mess up if the check states that cleanup shouldn't be done and it is ignored and done anyway.
    Same as some WU reset command lines posted by some MVPs....

    Couldnt agree more, that command should only be used on system level errors not nvidia's drivers since it does exactly what you described !

    I run a sfc /scannow from time to time unrelated to Nvidia drivers.


    No issues whatsoever with running sfc /scannow.

    You sure your files aren't corrupt because of that overclock?

    yeah me too. i noticed after ran DDU to uninstall previous NV driver, sure got corrupted files.

    running sfc /scannow seriously is no harm. those who said got issue are usually blamer & bashing drivers.

    Why do you even bother replying if it's wasted time ? Maybe post where your useful contribution don't attract pity ? troll...:bang:

    Do you notice issues and strange behavior in Win10 or it's just the sfc scannow that reports some corruption ?

    I find the following procedure the best after driver installs.

    1.tighten kitchen cupboard screws.
    2. change the lightbulb in the bathroom
    3.feed the dog
    4.After this if nothing works, reinstall windows.
    5. Repeat 1-4


    Kidding aside, dear OP, read up on what the SFC is before using it. You are not using it in the correct scenario.

    Not sure if this is trolling or not, but no - I don't use SFC after a driver installer. Not now, not ever.

    ^^^ Same boat here, never ever used it after driver install if i ever use it it is only if my os starts acting up, not once because of drivers

    That is why you don't see the issue by running the sfc command. :)
