Insert your operating system CD

Go to



and type

sfc /scannow

and hit ok. That might sort out some problems for you.

i have done that and nothing it just says cannot find file

Have you left a space between sfc and the slash /scannow?

Do you get the option to 'Retry'? If so keep clicking it until it's finished.

Are you getting an error message when trying to do one? If so what is it?

Possible ?????

You may have a lot of files that could be cleaned up. Maybe leaving it for a while might let it finish. How long, typically, do you leave it?
