Windows 7: I am not allowed to run CHKDSK from DOS box - Win 7 HP 64 bit.

I am not allowed to run CHKDSK from DOS box - Win 7 HP 64 bit.

Gentlemen:

I refer to Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

I open the "prompt" to enter the DOS Box.

I key "CHKDSK C:" and tap return.

A message appears that says that I do not have high enough privileges or rank
to run "CHKDSK" from the DOS prompt.

Any suggestions anyone?

Thank you for your help in advance.

Use an Elevated Command Prompt then run chkdsk from there. When prompted, respond wiht a y then reboot.

This fixed my computer when I had problems:

Go to Explorer, right click your C drive, click properties, tools, click check now, click start, click schedule……

When you restart your computer the chkdsk will run and, hopefully, fix your problem (s).
