When I had 98se, I used sfc on a regular basis. I have now intalled xp pro and when I type sfc nothing happens. Is that because it is not a part of xp or have I not installed something?

for older os commands (like sfc, ipconfig, etc...) you have to go to run, and type command. then you type the name (like sfc, ipconfig, etc.)

i tried it out and it worked for me. i don't know what sfc is, but i think i found out. is it like a disk checker thing?

check the pic. if it is the right program, i solved a problem!:D

sfc is short for system file checker. It gives you the ability to check files to see if they are corrupted. Your picture made me realize that with xp you have to be more specific. Not just sfc, but sfc /scannow.
Thanks.

scf

I have WindowsXP Home edition.. I can use the System File Checker as follows: RUN> sfc /scannow > OK
Note the space after sfc.

I have not read all the posts here, so if this has already been suggested, I apologize.
