    System File Checker checks that all Windows files are where they should be and that they're uncorrupted. Try SFC first before booting to your dvd for repair vista or reinstall.



    1. Open a Command Window in Administrator mode:



    * click Start

    * click All Programs, then Accessories

    * right click on the Command Prompt option,

    * on the drop down menu which appears, click on the Run as Administrator option.





    2. Start the System File Checker



    * In the Command Prompt window, type: sfc /scannow,

    * press Enter.

    * You’ll see “the system scan will begin”.



    The scan may take some time and windows will repair/replace any corrupt or missing files. You will be asked to insert your Vista DVD if it’s needed.



    Close the Command Prompt Window when the job is finished.



    The catch: you need a Windows CD or DVD to enable SFC to make repairs.
