Which disk checker tool/program to use?

As can be seen by my numerous posts, I seem to have a lot of problems so I've been reading about things to try. I'm a n00b with a big yellow streak down my back so need some advice. I'm thinking about either chkdsk or SFC or both.

Do they perform different tasks?

Does it matter which one is run before the other?

I'm sure they're both safe to use but should a 'restore point' be made first?

Also I believe they both offer scan only or scan & fix. Which is best for a n00b?

Thank you.
