Can't run sfc /scannow

This is odd. Suddenly I can't run sfc /scannow. I right click, choose run as admin. The window opens "UAC" click Yes and window flashes but does not open.
Any ideas please?

Running it from the command line off the windows disc is the only thing I can think of. I can't imagine what would be blocking the command window short of a virus.

oh I see you were running sfc from the box and not the cmd from the box
No big deal we all have our moments of doh.

Recently had a friend freaking out because of the same behavior with ipconfig command, turned out he was doing the same thing.
