Windows 8.1 Professional with Media Center (x64) (build 9600)
Boot Mode: UEFI with successful Secure Boot
Hewlett-Packard HP ENVY TS 17 Notebook PC
Haswell chip Intel, SATA HD

No problems with my system or laptop until I installed latest Windows updates 1-9-18 which included "fixes" for Spectre, Meltdown, et.al.

Noticed that I could no longer view Event Viewer. When clicking on Event Viewer to check status after updates, I got the message that "MMC could not create the snap-in" (no CLSID nor other info was given). Went to MMC in an attempt to create the snap-in, but the option to create a snap-in for Event Viewer was not there.

I noticed no other abnormalities and ran a scan disc from the Admin command prompt (sfc /scannow). It said it "did not find any integrity violations."

In an attempt to fix my Event Viewer problem, I did a RESTORE from the restore point I created before doing the 1/9/18 Windows updates in order to remove these Windows updates. Everything went smoothly, but it did nothing to resolve my Event Viewer problem. To be sure other things were okay, I ran another scan from the admin command prompt and also ran the DISM (ScanHealth, CheckHealth and RestoreHealth) checks. All operations completed successfully with nothing needing repair. After doing the restore point to remove the updates, I used the laptop throughout the day and eventually clicked on SHUT DOWN.

This morning, I signed on and decided to check Windows updates to see if there were other updates pending. There were NO updates, and it said that I had never checked for updates! I checked "View update history," and it reported "You have not tried to install any updates." Finally, I clicked on "Installed Updates," and it showed a number of updates going back to 2/2014 when I purchased this HP laptop (none from 1/9/18, but a huge number of updates done on 1/8/18).

I ran an Update Troubleshooter which reported a number of errors that it said it fixed. Afterward, Windows Update showed 7 new updates to download (which I did not download/install). Updates are:

2018-01 Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 3.5, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, 4.7.1 on Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2 for x64 (KB4055266)

Update for Windows 8.1 for x64-based Systems (KB3150513)
Download size: 1.3 MB
Update type: Recommended

Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool for Windows 8, 8.1, 10 and Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2, 2016 x64 Edition - January 2018 (KB890830)
Download size: 6.2 MB
Update type: Important

**NOTE: All of these updates were checked to download with the exception of the 4th one marked ** above (Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.1 for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 for x64 (KB4033369).

Why list this in the Windows updates if the square to install is not checked? This has never happened before. They are always ALL checked if they are listed, strange.

Again, I did NOT perform these updates. Instead, I chose to do another sfc scan from the admin command prompt, and again it did not find any integrity violations. I ran the DISM checks, and here is what I got this time:

I ran Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth, it reported the component store was repairable.

I ran Dism ..../CheckHealth and it reported that the store was repairable.

I ran Dism .../RestoreHealth, however, it reported that "The restoration operation failed. Either the repair source was no found or the component store cannot be repaired. ERROR: 0x800f081f DISM failed. No operation was performed. For more information, review the log file."

Not being computer-savvy, I have no idea what the entries in the DISM log mean nor what to do next. I certainly don't want to have to a system restore if there is anything that can be done to fix what's going on. I have on this PC programs that I paid a lot of money for and downloaded online, one application that I am unable to reinstall without buying a new software key. :(

I fear that Microsoft pushed out some poorly-made roll-ups in an attempt to fix the Spectre/Meltdown problem with the Intel chipsets. I should have listened to the little voice in my head telling me NOT to install these updates. Guess I'm one of the sad guinea pigs. :(

I pray someone here is able to help me. Thank you.

We can run through some troubleshooting shooting if you like but, I would recommend creating an image backup and then performing an in-place repair of Windows 8. This will not remove any of your files, programs, settings ect. If you want me to check your logs then perform the steps below for the event viewer tool

http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-repair-windows-8-1-installation/

Please download and Run the Event Viewer Tool
http://images.malwar...om/vino/VEW.exe

1. Run program as Administrator
2.. Under Select log to query
3. select System
4. Under Select type to list
Select:
* Error
* Warning
Choose the Number of events as follows:
Click on umber of events
Type 20 in the box (1 to 20)
Click the Run button (Notepad will open the log)
upload files to next reply
Rename to SystemLog or it will be overwritten

Run these steps again Except at step 3.
Select Application
Rename log file to ApplicationLog
Upload the files or Paste to next reply

Thank you for your answer.
The link you gave the the Event Viewer tool didn't work. :( Do you have another?

Question: Is an AOMEI Backerupper backup sufficient to backup my entire system (including applications)?

Thank you,

I found the tool you linked on Google and downloaded it and ran it per your instructions. All I got was the following with no logs:

"Cannot find the C:\VEW.txt file. Do you want to create a new file?"

When I clicked on 'yes,' nothing happened. When I ran it again and clicked 'no,' same thing, nothing.

I don’t see any errors with your event viewer but it was probaby recorded a lot earlier. Have you made sure thst .Net 3.5 is instslled and working correctly? Usually you delete the registry entry and it will be rebuilt on reboot. Have you tried that method?

You have some errors with malwarebytes, I am not sure if it is still installed or not. If it is, then recommend uninstalling or reinstalling the latest version

Also shows your driver is bad for your cd-rom so its needs updated.

Another option to try is the following:
Windows All in One Repair Tool
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/windows-repair-all-in-one/
Download either the portable or install program

1. Start computer in Safe Mode
2. Disable any Anti-Virus programs
3. Start the program
4. When program first starts it will run quick file check
5. Click on the X button after the scan shows Done!
6. Click on Settings tab and Select Check for Updates
7. Click on Pre-Repair Steps Tab and Run All 4 Steps
8. Select both Registry Backup and Create System Restore
9. Click Presets: All Repairs
10. Click Start Repairs

For Best Results Run the Repairs option Twice!

Thank you.

I had no problems until I did the Windows roll-up updates (I recall there were 6-7) on 1-9-18, so if there was something recorded a lot earlier, I never noticed it. Since I view Event Viewer a lot, especially after doing updates or installing software, I know that it disappeared after I did the Windows updates (including Spectre and Meltdown fixes) on the 9th. Since then, I have been unable to view Event Viewer and I get the MMC snap-in error message I mentioned in my first post.

No, don't know if .NET 3.5 is installed and working correctly. How do I check this? I haven't done anything with the registry. Frankly, without instruction, I don't go in there at all. :(

Yes, Malwarebytes is still installed. I will try the uninstall/reinstall.

I've had no problems with my CD-ROM. I thought the problem was with the disc in the CD-ROM, no? I did have a bad disc that wouldn't play, but you say it's the driver? Please tell me how I can update the driver?

You said ANOTHER option to try ... do you mean to try this All-In-One tool instead of the other things??? Or should I try the other option after doing the Malwarebytes reinstall and CD-ROM driver fix?

As I said, I'm not very computer savvy, so if I seem cautious, it's because I don't want to mess things up. I'm grateful for your kind assistance. :)

I uninstalled Malwarebytes and reinstalled it. Ran a scan which came back clean.
I checked my CD-ROM driver, and it is up-t0-date. I ran another VEW scan, and the log showed no CD-ROM events this time. Neither were there any Malwarebytes events.

Still no Event Viewer snap-in.

Once I hear from you how to check .NET 3.5, I will do this. Then, I guess I can try the Windows All In One Repair Tool?

Thanx,

Just searched the registry for NET Framework, and, yes, >NET 3.5 is installed. Is it working correctly? I don't know how to tell.
Thanx,

Okay, good to hear the logs are cleaned. To check for .Net 3.5

Go into Control panel and under Programs and Features.
Select Turn Windows fratures on and off
Check .Net 3.5. Is selected or not
If already checked, then uncheck restart and then perform steps again and Check .Net 3.5 to reinstall

If those steps don’t get us anywhere then go ahead and run the All in one repair tool and let me know if it helps or not.

The next step would be a repair install as I mentioned in post 2 with link for steps.

My .NET 3.5 is listed in the registry, and it is ticked in Control Panel. I have a .NET 3.5 update

pending in Windows Updates, but I have NOT installed it because it was one of the several updates done

on 1/9/18, one or more of which caused the problem I am having with my PC now: No Event Viewer and unrepairable component store corruption.




Running DISM late last night, here is what was reported:

DISM RestoreHealth command:

The restore operation failed. Either the repair source was not found or the component store cannot be

repaired.

Error: 0x800f081f

DISM failed. No operation was performed.
For more information, review the log file.

The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log

In checking DISM log, here is what I found to be irreparable according to the log:

*******************************

Finally, last night, I ran this Admin command after the DISM RestoreHealth did not work:

Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /AnalyzeComponentStore

Here's what was reported. I have no idea what this means:

Component Stre (WinSxS) information:

Windows Explorer Reported Size of Component Store : 11.44 GB

Actual Size of Component Store : 11.04 GB

Shared with Windows : 5.04 GM

The operation completed successfully.
*******************************
Here's the latest VEW.exe log just done. Why it's showing MBAM problems after removal and

reinstallation with no problems following reinstallation, I have no clue:

So where are we at after all your repair attempts?

Did you try uninstalling and reinstalling .Net 3.5. Either the repair install or All in one repair fixed the event viewer or .Net?

Okay so have you ran Dism command after running the Analyze and fix?

The Malwarebytes errors look like old corrupted registry entries and it said they were fixed.

Yes, it said Malwarebytes errors were fixed. Now, apparently not.
No, I didn't uninstall .NET 3.5 and reinstall. Why? Because I read online that when some people who were having problems like mine did this, they were not able to reinstall .NET 3.5 and this made problems worse. Is this not a possibility?
I ran DISM command that said component store corruptions could not be fixed. I rant the Analyze in hopes of getting some more information to bring back here. I don't understand what the Analyze log reported, so I brought it here for you, hoping it would help. ;)

I did not run any fix. Are you referring to the Repair file you linked in another post? Is this what you suggest at this point? I want to be sure because I am afraid of losing my installed applications that have to be repurchased if lost. Sorry for being Ms. Paranoid, but could the component store items that cannot be fixed be causing all these problems? Did you see the four component store errors I posted????

Thanx

First, I would recommend creating a disk image backup so if any issues then you can easily restore your system to the way it was.

https://www.macrium.com/reflectfree

We aren,t sure if Malwarebytes was fixed or not since you havenkt provide nee logs.

Yes, i would recommend uninstalling and reinstalling .Net3.5

It looked like you performed the store component repair from the message below. Please confirm weather you selected yes or not.

Number of Reclaimable Packages : 19
Component Store Cleanup Recommended : Yes
