You are saying when you type cmd in the Start Menu search box and hit CTRL+Shift Enter to open an adminstative command window and typing SFC /scannow that it will not start?

titors,
Here we go step by step:
  1. WIN key (that's the one with the funny looking wavy flag on it)
  2. type CMD.EXE -- DO NOT HIT THE ENTER KEY!!
  3. CMD.EXE will appear in that blank area above the search box.
  4. RIGHT-CLICK on CMD.EXE
  5. Click on "Run as administrator" in the list which appears
  6. Now you should be at a command prompt
  7. type SFC /SCANNOW and hit enter.
