avg may have been compromised, either d/load stinger to a floppy (free one from the top of a google search results) disconnect and disable system restore and run stinger, you may also like to run an on line scan at click here

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I'm using XP and have NEVER been able to run sfc /scannow.

All I ever get is a quick flash (!) for a fraction of a second of a black DOS-type screen and that's it.

I'm up-to-date with and regularly run my AV, Spybot, AdAware, SpywareBlaster, a2, CW Shredder and Stinger. I'm 100% confident that I have a clean machine.

Can anybody help? What exactly is supposed to happen when I run sfc /scannow?

If sfc /scannow runs and then dissapears that's it,it has restored any damaged system files,
