yes it is
sfc /scannow

make sure there is a space between c and /

System File Checker
this checks all system files and makes sure they are intact and working. If it finds a missing or corrupt file it attempts to fix it or replace it.

The command is not being recognized is what i see.

D:\>sfc /scannow (Yes there ia a space between c & /)

Do you think this command should be invoked from a different folder or something?

[hidy comments for the above:
Yes i am definitely at the recovery console D:\ prompt. I tried at the D:\prompt as well as D:\i386 prompt and the same result. Command not recognized.
At the same location i ran the successful CHKDSK /r command. Are the CHKDSK results OK? ]


try this
C:\ click enter
now type in
sfc /scannow
click enter and let me know what happens

[hidy comments for the above:
This time i chose the option 1 which is C:\windows. I entered 1 and hit the Enter key.
It is asking me for Administrators password and I typed the only password that i know and it does not let me in. ]

If no password is in the box then just leave it empty and press enter. It should go thru then

Thanks. I did not even think about the no password option.
Anyways I was able to get to the C:\windows> prompt.

The sad part is i typed the command c:\>sfc /scannow without success.
I also tried at the c:\windows>sfc /scannow

For both there is a space between c & / and I get the same result as "The command is not recognized Type HELP for a list of supported commands".

FYI:
I went to C:\Windows\System32> prompt
I type dir s* and i was able to see the following:
04/13/08 05:12P -a------ sfc.dll
08/09/04 09:00p -------- sfc.exe
04/13/08 05:12p -------- sfcfiles.dll
04/13/08 05:12p -a------ sfc_os.dll

Do you think the execute permissions is not given for the sfc.exe?

It seems like i am not able go beyond this point.
I tried all variations of sfc.exe without success..
I tried it at c:, C:\windows and also c:\windows\system32 without success.
I get the same result "Command not recognized. Type HELP for the list of commands"

c:\windows\system32>sfc.exe
c:\windows\system32>sfc.exe /scannow

c:\windows\>sfc.exe
c:\windows\>sfc.exe /scannow

c:\>sfc.exe
c:\>sfc.exe /scannow

Ok lets try something else then. At the C:\ prompt type in
expand D:\i386\explorer.ex_ c:\windows

This expands the original compressed file explorer.ex_ to system folder . Then enter 'exit' and press Enter. PC reboots and starts the system.

It will restore the original, unpatched explorer.exe that is not up to date. I am not sure what effect that would have on a system.

It should allow you to now enter windows again

OK i tried as suggested and it went through fine.
At the c:\prompt

c:\>expand D:\i386\explorer.ex_ c:\windows
Overwrite explorer.exe(Yes/All/No/Quit): Y
explorer.exe
1 file(s) expanded

At the c:\prompt i input exit and hit the enter key.

The system rebooted but I was not successful logging in. The same as before, login and then it logs me off.

Ok this is really being a problem child. Let me ask for help from a Tech Staff. They may see something I missed or overlooked. Please be patient as they may be busy.

This is suggestion from Loophole the staff member who looked over this thread for me. After each line click enter. let me know if this works. the only side affect is you may have to Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up windows explorer but I will research and see if we can get around that. This hopefully will get you back into windows.

From RC log into the windows version (1)


copy C:\windows\explorer.exe C:\
ren C:\explorer.exe userinit.exe
del C:\windows\system32\userinit.exe
copy C:\userinit.exe C:\windows\system32
