Checking System Files

  Abel 09:21 16 Jul 2009

The memory's flagging this-morning. Please remind me of the command to use in 'Run' that checks that none of the system files have been corrupted. Many thanks in advance.

sfc /scannow

As per rawprawn, whilst pointing out that you need to note the space after sfc.

You may also need your installation disk.

Thanks all. Funny how it all comes back when you're reminded.

I've also learned something too Pamy. I never realised that chkdsk, in the form you express it, would do the same thing at startup.

Most people tend to use the hard drive's Properties>Tools>Error checking route for ChkDsk.
