Recently I have been exiting from my CSGO game sessions and due to VAC issues and when I click ok it takes me to a steam support page (Disconnected by VAC: You cannot play on secure servers - Steam Support) where it shows various options to fix the issue.
And among the instructions provided there, I found the following cmd command sfc /scannow to scan and repair Windows system files.
I typed in that code, then it scanned and said

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them.
For online repairs, details are included in the CBS log file located at
windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For offline
repairs, details are included in the log file provided by the /OFFLOGFILE flag.

So what is this? I have installed my windows a few weeks ago and should I be worried?
