Windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation:

When some Windows functions do not work or Windows crashes, use System File Checker (SFC) to scan and restore damaged Windows system files. However, as many users report, when they run the “sfc / scannow” command, the “Windows Resource Protection requested function could not perform” error appears. Don’t worry, you can fix it using the methods here.
