Last night my wallpaper went completely black on both monitors, and would not change no matter what I did even with displayfusion installed, I tried uninstalling displayfusion and my Nvidia drivers before setting up a system repair but once it scanned it had that error message.

I decided to reinstall 8.1 this morning right before finding this topic and will test this cmd when it's finished with its first install.

Apple if you've already reinstalled then the DISM command won't help you. I did almost exactly what you did the first time it occurred to me, then when it started showing up on client's PCs I started looking for a different way to resolve it.

Keep an eye on yours though, when it happened to me a 2nd time it was within 7 days of me having done the 'refresh'.

Longest I've seen the SFC take in recent memory is an hour, so you might give it another go. I do remember it being dreadfully slow back in the day.

And people say Windows 8 is better than WIndows 7....

Oh shut up. Windows 7 was just as "bad" when it first launched. 8 is phenomenal for everything except it has a few bugs. Big deal.
