unable to start sfc

Hi all,
I am helping a mate with his comp which has been giving him strife....probably due to grand-kids meddling on the web. I installed MBAM, Ccleaner, adaware and SAS on it and cleared over a thousand errors, (adware mostly but a couple of nasties too I suspect). I then tried to scan it using system file checker but when I open command prompt and type in sfc /scannow it just closes with no action. Are there any answers out there people??

Ta Oscer, hadn't thought about whether he has admin rights set up. Will check it tomorrow when I call in to see him.
