Does this help? click here I had a problem where sfc /scannow was giving me problems and I found the location details in the registry were wrong. If you follow this to the letter it should work.

As you appear to have a CD and a DVD optical drive on your system, you should make sure you are using the D drive (if one is a rewriter it will be D).

It's easy to forget that a ROM drive will be the E drive...:-)
