Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Great resource Ed, thank you. In fact it might well solve a problem I experienced over the weekend :-). (FYI - I changed the link to go through my redirector.)
I have a simple problem - I type Sfc.exe in the run box and it "pops up" for a split second - then disappears!! Have tried many times. I am not a computer expert - so I'm not exactly sure EXACTLY what to type at the command prompt (the 2nd route I've tried). Microsoft website isn't much help.
As the article you just commented on specifies:
should do the trick. If you're having trouble, may be easier if you open a command prompt and do it in there, rather than the start-run box.
When I type SFC /SCANNOW or SFC /SCANONCE, it shows me the following messages
Windows File Protection could not make the requested change.
The specific error code is 0x000006ba [The RPC server is unavailable.
You might need to repair Windows by doing an upgrade/repair install: http://ask-leo.com/d-40903a is a MS KB article "How to perform an in-place upgrade (reinstallation) of Windows XP"
I AM WORKING ON WINDOWS XP AND WHEN I TRY TO OPEN SOME WEBSITES ON MSN OR EARTHLINK (EX. OLDNAVY.COM) IT OPENS IT AND THEN SOMETHING POPS UP THAT SAYS IEXPLORE-APPLICATION ERROR
THE INSTRUCTION AT "0x7c9105f8" referenced memory at "0x01b60010". THE MEMORY COULD NOT BE "READ".
CLICK ON OK TO TERMINATE THE PROGRAM.
PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME

1st - great site
2nd - I'm having trouble with this. I'm missing note pad. so i followed your advice here. I read the article on what to do if don't have a start up disk and then went about running the SFC. It found a problem and asked for the cd, it offerd the options to "Retry" "More Info" and "Cancel" I hit retry and it aked for the cd again( in a new box). I hit "Ok" and was hoping that it would ask for me to locate it, it didn't how ever. My question is, did i do something wrong, or is they some other way to do this? Your help would be awsome if you have the time. I really miss my notepad. I've tried to include as much information as possible. And will provide more if asked. I'm not all that computer savy, so take it easy on me if this is a stupid question. :)
Thank You in advance.
I wanted to run SFC to check out a problem. Went to Run, typed in sfc/scannow and window box came back saying it cannot find sfc/scannow. Make sure I've typed correctly, etc. what has happened to that file? I recently installed, then uninstalled SP2, because I had all kinds of problems. Would that have anything to do with it?
