I'm still puzzled about the Command Prompt though. If I go to All Programs\Accessories\Command Prompt (r click Run as Admin) I get C:\Users\Mike, not C:\Windows\system32. Why is that? I can only run SFC by using Start\Run which does take me to C:\Windows\system32.
In any event, it seems my system is OK, just puzzled really!
In regards to the command prompt; the difference is simply the default location for each method used to display it. You can easily change the location yourself by using DOS commands; ie, c:\users\mike (change it to the Windows system 32 directory, as follows)
(the above assumes you have used the accessories menu to access the DOS prompt) and from there you add "cd c:\Windows\system32" (without the quotes)
Just cut and paste the following; cd c:\windows\system32
