Overall, it’s wise to assess the state of Windows from time to time and the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth command works wonders at that. By running the DISM command, Windows users could see how well the operating system is holding on and take action in times of need. The DISM command returns a result that says “The component store is repairable” and you don’t know what to do? Then this article is going to be of use to you.
Trigger: Corruption In Component Store
In case you don’t know, Windows Component Store plays a supportive role in the installation, customization and update of Windows. Like everything else, Windows Component Store may become corrupted over time which results in quite a few issues if left unaddressed. Thus, if you run the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth command and come across “The component store is repairable”, you must act at once.
“Component Store Is Repairable”: Suggestions
Run Restorehealth Command
If the Scanhealth command reveals corruption in Windows Component Store, you should consider running the RestoreHealth command after that to fix it.
- Step 1: If Command Prompt/Powershell is still open after you run the Scanhealth command, feel free to run the RestoreHealth command (DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth). Reopen Command Prompt/Powershell with administrator privileges if you have closed it.
- Step 2: Wait until the process wraps then restart your computer.
- Step 3: When the screen comes back one, open Command Prompt/Powershell with administrator privileges again then run the Scanhealth command (DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth). Assuming that things proceed smoothly, you should see a clean bill of health.
Run CHKDSK Command
- Step 1: Type cmd in the Search bar, right-click Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.
- Step 2: In the Command Prompt (Admin), type chkdsk /f /r, press Enter and proceed to press Y.
- Step 3: Allow the process to go all the way then restart your computer.
Make Use Of Windows Memory Diagnostic
- Step 1: Save ongoing work and close everything including applications running in the background.
- Step 2: Press the Windows Key plus R to open Run, type mdsched.exe and hit Enter.
- Step 3: Hit Restart now and check problems (recommended).
- Step 4: Your computer will soon restart into the Windows Memory Diagnostics environment and Standard tests should commence immediately. Usually, Windows Memory Diagnostic is going to run Basic, LRAND, Stride6 (cache enabled), CHCKR3, WMATS+, and WINVC tests.
- Step 5: The moment the diagnostic concludes, your computer will start up normally. For good measure, run the ScanHealth command one more time and see how things turn out.
