Hi - I am running XP with SP2 on a Sony vaio laptop when I run sfc the cmd prompt flashes and I get this message

sfc /scannow
Windows File Protection could not initiate a scan of protected system files.
The specific error code is 0x000004dd The operation being requested was not performed because the user has not logged on to the network.
The specified service does not exist.
I am the administrator and I only have a local network two computers wireless

any advice gratefully received:pray:

Re: Scannow

It sounds like the system file checker is trying to run itself but is failing for some reason. Do you have an XP cd? (Not a recovery cd)

If yes, insert the CD and go to start > run and type "cmd" without quotes. Then type "sfc /scannow" without quotes. Does the system file checker run or do you get an error?
