sfc /scannowClick OK (Enter in Vista).
If System File Checker (sfc) finds any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD.
If sfc does not find any errors in Windows XP, it will simply quit without leaving a message.
In Vista you will receive the following message: "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations".
For Vista users ONLY: Navigate to C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder. You'll see a file called CBS.log.
Usually, it's pretty big file, so upload it to Flyupload, and post the download link.
If you don't have Windows CD:
This applies mostly to Windows XP, since Vista rarely requires use of its DVD while running System File Checker.
Note: This method will not necessarily work as well, as when using Windows CD, because not always ALL system files are backed up on your hard drive. Also, backed up files may be corrupted as well.
Go to Start > Run ("Start Search" in Vista). Type:
regeditClick OK (Enter in Vista).
Navigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup
You will see various entry values on the right hand side.
The one we want is called SourcePath.
It probably has an entry pointing to your CD-ROM drive, usually D:. That is why it is asking for the XP CD.
All we need to do is change it to C:.
Double-click the SourcePatch setting and a new box will pop up.
Change the drive letter from your CD drive to your root drive, usually C:.
Close the Registry Editor.
Now restart your computer and try sfc /scannow again!
