It's the best tool to have in your toolbox.

Besides, if SFC wouldn't fix your files you may need it for a repair install, or a fresh install sometime in the future.

I guess I'll just have to live with this, I can't afford to download the whole OS again. Thanks I guess...

I don't get it. If you downloaded it once and installed it did you not burn it to a disk? Which means you should already have Windows on a DVD.
