    Command sfc/scannow


    Why is that my command (as an administrator) "sfc/scannow" is not working as it should?

    When run, it opens and closes immediately a black DOS window, and nothing happens. My OS is Win8.1 PRO (64bits)

    I welcome any help that can be given to me.

    The command is scf /scannow You need a space between the scf and the forward slash.

    Is your admin cmd opening to C:\Windows\system32 ?

    The space not being there shouldn't give that result, in fact it worked just fine for me,
