No, just go to Start/Run and type in cmd, from here you will get the required window. Type in sfc and you will get a list of options, example scannow. To run one of these commands type it as follows noting the space befor ethe slash: sfc /scannow then press enter on your keyboard.
hi, sorry. recap, the sfc was fine, i ran the dos prompt and it scanned ok, but came up with nothing, meaning no apparent probs. what i meant was the blank window, however, VoG, that link you gave me seems to have solved the problem for me, but i'll have to wait and see if it's solved completely. is it just me or is microsoft web site hard to navigate. i've tried countless times to find info but seem to go round in circles. anyway, thnx for the help guys, all seems to be ok, for now :)
