Can't run CHKDSK.

HP Recommended
slim desktop 290

I can't run CHKDSK.  It shows that I am the Administrator, but I get a message that I don't have permissions.  I had extra RAM added yesterday and it was suggested that I run CHKDSK as they PC is slow shutting down.  I got this PC last week on 02/23/20 and when setup things were copied from OneDrive.

The HP 290 series has been out at least since early 2018. 

Noted it was over $600 base unit, not less than $300.

You should do:

1) previous Restore Point (minimum).

2) perform a Recovery. There are 2 options, ie OS (data intact)  or Full (remove all, like new).
