    Method 1
    The Code 10 error pertains mainly to hardware and device driver issues or to compatibility issues between hardware drivers and additional software that is installed in Windows. Therefore, we recommend that you troubleshoot these issues by focusing on device drivers, on device configuration issues, and on hardware compatibility issues.

    Method 2
    I would suggest you to run SFC scan in elevated command prompt. SFC scan will scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

    hello friend,
    this error is nothing but stating that particular file is missing
    so you need to download that particular file from net
    and place that file is required location
    so that that message will not show again to you
    if you failed to download that then your system slowly faces problems like
    system becomes slow
    it will not respond accurately
    it will take long time to shutdown or to process any operation
    and then finally it may lead you to format your os
