Yep, the command is correct. Be sure that you are doing it from within Windows in an elevated command prompt.

I am accessing cmd exe via start/Accessories/cmd prompt/then i right click and run as administrator.
I also tried creating a cmd exe shortcut from system32 but it still doesn't work.
But the sfc /scannow still runs.

No. You shouldn't have any issues using that as well.

Did you move your user profile folder by chance?

Double check to verify if the "C:\Windows\Logs\CBS" folder and your "C:\Users\(user-name)\Desktop" folder exists.

"C:\Windows\Logs\CBS" is correct but there's no desktop folder in "C:\Users\(user-name)\Desktop"
Also i've no recollection of moving my user profile folder.

Ok. The "C:\Users\(user-name)\Desktop" user folder not being there is what is causing the error in the command prompt.

You can do OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to restore the default location of your "C:\Users\(user-name)\Desktop" folder. Afterwards, you should be to run the command.
