Some users become empty, blank and do not have text dialog boxes on a Windows 10 computer. Generally, a dialog box is designed to facilitate decision-making on your computer system. It appears as a pop-up window, either to request your approval/rejection of a task, or simply to present you with options for performing a task (or tasks).
Sometimes, a dialog box appears empty, without options or information, simply empty.
To resolve the empty Windows 10 dialog boxes, do the following:
Perform an SFC scan on your computer.
To do this, follow these steps:
- Open a highlighted prompt. To do this, proceed as follows:
- If you are using Windows 10, Windows 8.1 or Windows 8, run the DISM (Inbox Deployment Image Servicing and Management) tool before running System File Checker. (If you are using Windows 7 or Windows Vista, proceed to step 3.)
Type the following command, then press Enter. It may take several minutes for the command operation to end.
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup – Image /Health restoration
Important : When you execute this command, DISM uses Windows Update to provide the necessary files to troubleshoot errors. However, if your Windows Update client is already broken, use a running Windows installation as a repair source or a Windows folder side by side from a network share or removable media, such as the Windows DVD, as the source for the files. To do this, execute the following command instead:
DISM.exe /Online /Clean the image /Restoring health /Source:C:\RepairSource\Windows /LimitAccess
Note: Replace the C:\RepairSource\Windows wildcard character with the location of your repair source. For more information on using the DISM tool to repair Windows, see Repairing a Windows Image.
At the command prompt, type the following command, then press ENTER :
