    You should run the "SFC scan" after logging in as "Administrator". You would not be able to log in normally so try logging in through Safe Mode.For that,restart your computer and keep rpessing "F8" button until you see some option. In those option,choose "Advanced Boot Options". Use the UP/Down arrow keys to highlight the selected options. Choose "Safe Mode with Networking" and press enter button on your keyboard. It will show some driver loading screen so don't worry and let it complete all the steps. After the completion of all steps,it will show you the Welcome Screen.Now logon as Administrator and open command prompt as Admin. After than type "sfc /scannow" without quotes and press enter. It will fix your issue. Once done,restart your computer and enjoy. If this method fails then you will have to rename the "Pending.xml" file in your windows.
