Windows Resource Protection is a feature that protects registry keys and folders as well as critical system files, System File Checker is integrated with WRP.

You can read more about it here

You could do a repair install which will do a repair of the operating system. You will need to have the DVD installation disc. And if you did this i would back up all of your data you want to save just incase something went wrong!

Hello.


You can try an sfc /scan using the method outlined in this tutorial at the link below, it may have better success as it runs from WinRE and the system files won't be 'in use' during the scan, be sure to run the scan several times as it can take several runs to complete successfully and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

Are you having issues or you just experimenting?

If it ain't broke don't fix it.

Run sfc /scannow in XP?
My mom's computer is acting up again, and I have been selected as the designated Repair Guy. Yay me! :p She is running XP sp3. I'd like to do an sfc/ scannow on the thing, but I've never done it in XP. Has anybody done this? What should I know going in? Any pointers or advice for me? Thanks!

SFC /scannow
Just left the above running while I took a break, got back and it must have finished. Which event log will I find the result in? Also, I went into command prompt as admin, but it said it didn't recognise the SFC command. I ran it from Run OK though. Is that right?
