error : The configuration registry database is corrupt (0x800703F1)

Windows 8.1 has a registry hive called components, this is what windows updates and I know windows backup uses, the error is telling you that it is corrupt. My windows repair doesnt target that hive, but I am all for finding fixes for it that i can add.

First, have you done a chkdsk on the drive yet? It is possible it is just a simple file system error and a chkdsk could correct it.
