Restore your computer or server

If you have experienced issues with your Windows server or computer running Windows 10 and the file system has damaged files. Run the DISM command which most of the time fixes a number of serious errors on your computer or server.

First of all, depending on style or age…load up either your Command Prompt or PowerShell and type in the following commands below.

Command Prompt – old school, pre-2019

PowerShell – what you should be using as a command line in 2019
