Re: Console session
Thanks Rick. I had trouble finding the "run as Administrator" until you told
me to click the link. My problem was that I had two accounts in Vista so I
could sign on as administator, but I did not password protect the
administator account.. I don't know what adding a password did but it all
started working, allowing me to run SFC and dskchk, which I could not do
before. Maybe the information about adding a password is something new, I
don't know, but I hope it may also help someone else.
