Click the Windows "Start" button.

Type 'CMD', but do not press ENTER.

You should see:

 

Programs (1)

CMD

 

Second-mouse-button (this usually is the RIGHT mouse-button) on 'CMD',

and choose 'Run As Administrator', to get an "elevated" (higher permissions) mostly-black window.

Type 'SFC /SCANNOW' and press ENTER.

Hi there @Catlover4,

 

May the Forums be with you!  I understand that you are looking for help with console commands/programs.  I am happy to give you a hand with this.

 

A console command is generally a command issue from the command line outside of the now common GUI (graphical user interface) normally with administrative rights.  The programs are generally going to operating system commands sometimes with "switches" appended. Many commands require administrative access to run and so you will generally need to open an "elevated command prompt" to use them.

 

This page has a description of how to do that for several operating systems: How To Open an Elevated Command Prompt  -pcsupport.about.com

 

Please let me know whether that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.
