Its telling me I must be an administrater running a console in order to use the sfc utility. I am the administrater and the only log on my laptop. Could my laptop be infected? I have a Microsoft Essentials scan running incase lol .

The actual path to the folder should be: users > (your user name) > My Documents. If it isn't showing up in your "Documents" Library just right click the "My Documents" folder and use the "Include in Library" option to put it back. If thats not your problem post back with more info and we'll try and sort it out.
