    System File Checker (sfc)Scans and verifies the versions of all protected system files after you restart your computer.

    /scannow
    Scans all protected system files immediately.
    /scanonce
    Scans all protected system files once.
    /scanboot
    Scans all protected system files every time the computer is restarted.
    /revert
    Returns the scan to its default operation.

    /cachesize=x

    Hi Ironcurtain,

    Click Start > Run > type or copy&paste sfc /scannow >OK

    Have your Windows CD handy as you will be prompted for it, if any system files are found missing/corrupt/outdated.

    Regards,

    Pieter
