A critical data structure corruption error means that Windows has detected that one of its files has changed or that the data that has one of its files in memory has changed. In this case, it was the Windows 32 kernel. This file is often attacked by malware, rootkits and viruses.
This may be due to poorly written device drivers or faulty hardware, such as faulty memory, power problems, component overheating or hardware that exceeds its specification limits.
How to correct errors STORE_DATA_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION:
Correct Registry Errors with Sfc /Scannow patch
There is a way to solve the registry problem using the Windows command prompt. Most of the time, this problem is solved by placing a single order in the PDC and you don’t even need to buy anything.
- So, Open CMD, as administrator.
- Then enter the command “Sfc /Scannow” and press Enter. Be sure not to close this PDC window until the verification is 100% complete.
- Restart your computer and test it, if the blue screen has disappeared, then that’s fine.
If the SFC analysis could not solve the problem, we will try an advanced troubleshooting tool. As its name suggests, Deployment Image Service and Management (DISM) reuses the system image to solve any problems on the go.
To run DISM on Windows 10:
Open the command prompt as shown above.
Enter the following command and press Enter: DISM.exe /Online /Clean Image /Restore Health
Wait until the process is complete.
Restart your computer.
If the DISM cannot recover the files online, try your USB or DVD installation. Insert the media and enter the following command: DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup Image /RestoreHealth /Source:C:\RepairSource\Windows /LimitAccess
Make sure to replace the “C:\RepairSource\Windows” path on your DVD or USB.
Checking the system memory
The system memory is the first hardware component to be checked for the BSOD, as it is probably the first major component to fail when the critical structure corruption error occurs. Windows has a built-in application to check system memory.
Click the Start button to open the Start menu.
Search for Windows memory diagnostics.
Open it in management mode.
Select the Restart now option and check for problems. This leads to a reboot of the system. After rebooting the system, the memory test starts. If the test fails, you will need to purchase a new memory.
Event Viewer Verification
Event Viewer is a desktop application that allows administrators and users to view event logs on the local or remote PC to monitor events in your system. It records program, security and system events.
Press Win + R and enter eventvwr.msc to open the Event Viewer.
Expand the tree structure on the left page and follow this path: Windows Protocols > System.
Check all events in the system event windows before CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION takes place. If there are one or more errors, find and correct them one after the other.
