When I try to run SFC.exe I get a square of black biefly, then nothing. According to Microsoft help I should have it on XP?

  JoeC 20:18 10 Feb 2003

then go Start Run and type in the box

sfc /scannow

note the space between sfc and /. : }

In XP run sfc /scannow.

JoeC no CD these days!

MAJ Windows cannot find...

  MAJ 20:30 10 Feb 2003

Run it from a command prompt, graham, see if that helps. Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.

No Command Prompt in my accessories, Help pointed me there too.

  MAJ 20:44 10 Feb 2003

Start > Run, type "cmd" (without the quotes),graham

  graham 20:53 10 Feb 2003

That did it, without a CD. What happens is the program goes straight into the taskbar without me noticing! Thanks, and thanks to MAJ, wonder why my Command prompt isn't in accessories?
