Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot
This does not work...i type it, hit enter and a screen pops up for a split second (cant even see what it looks like)..then nothing happens...
what to do?

first time it said cannot check disk
then i ran again and it said checked disk...and that it was clean
both only took like 30 seconds
should i move on to tune up?
