Don't type it in the Start|Run box; start a command window (I thinkAs for sfc/Scannow, I am the only user and have all the
administrative rights. I type sfc/scannow in the popup that opens
with "Start" and "Run". Nothing happens but a very quick vision of a
black window with white lines scrolling (by quick I mean less than a second).
typing cmd in the Start|Run box will do that, though I'm not sure if
you get enough privileges that way). This will open up a (yes, it is
black [by default - I think you can change it]) command window, and
you type sfc/Scannow into _that_. It _won't_ then close when it's
finished, and you will then be able to see what it says. You can also
start a command window from somewhere in the Start|Programs area -
not sure about 7, under XP I think it's under Accessories - and
that's how you get more privileges if you need them (you find it,
then _right_ click and choose run as administrator).
I was able to run sfc/scannow and it fixed the problem.
Now I have created a restore point.
busking it from when I briefly had a 7 PC a year or two ago (and what
I've read here) - I'm still wedded to my XP!
