SFC utility

By 5481 ·
SFC utility does not run on my Win ME system and never has through 2 different motherboard types and many re-installs of ME. Isn't this utility only for Win 98? I have seen several answers here refering to this utility in conjunction with ME.

I didn't understand yypur answer or your shorthand. Of course there is a system restore option in Win ME, but this is different from the SFC utility in Win 98, which can be accessed from the Ron dialog box.

I'll check my ME box in the AM as soon as I can get to it, but in the meantime try this to see if all your updates are registered properly, very important. Windows Explorer>My Computer>C: Drive\>WINDOWS....in the Windows file folder look for a fileQFECheck.exe (a yellow light bulb looking icon), double left click on the file, then when the "Update Information Tool Properties" window opens, expand all the "+" signs in the first pane, check to see if all updated files are registered (it will tell you if not), then click on the "Updated Files Found" tab and run it to check for others not yet registered.

Make sure all running programs including Windows Explorer are closed first.

1 more help in this area is the newest Belarc Advisor version (free for personal use), from www.belarc.com It now shows all the installed MS hotfixes and whether or not they verify out properly, and gives a direct link to find the indiv. page to the MS database if not for re-install without using Win Update. Not to mention the wealth of other info both installed hdwre. & sftware wise.
