Registry / Windows Files Repair

  matt-few 21:04 15 Feb 10

A friend wants to repair his Windows XP install by checking XP files to those on the original disc.

I have done this before running a "scan" from the run box, but can't remember how to do it - please can anyone remind me.

Many thanks in advance.

Type into the Run box

sfc /scannow (note space before /scannow)

and then OK.

Type scf /scannow. Remember the space between 'f' and '/'. You will need the XP disc if files are to be replaced.

That's it. I just couldn't remember it.

Thanks for helping me out.
