    Method 1: Install All Pending Updates. To fix the error 0xc0000020, the first way you can try is to install every pending update on your Windows 10.

    Method 2: run DISM and SFC scans to maximize your chances of fixing the error 0xc0000020. Get into command run as administrator and type in this command: sfc /scannow then you will get “There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart windows and run sfc again.

    Method 3: Perform a Repair Install. If none of the above approaches can resolve this error, you may be dealing with an underlying system file corruption that can’t be normally solved. Or if you want the fastest process and don't care about data loss, you can perform a clean install.

    Thank you Steven. Tried DISM and SFC scans but scan was only partially completed with errors message. Will try again and if all else fails, will try your recommended re installation process🙏
