Repair Installation

Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by Powerchordpunk, Jun 20, 2002.

  1. I have been having problems with connecting to the Windows Update site. Tech support says my WUPDMGR.EXE file is corrupt and needs to be replaced by system file checker. The tech went on to say that I needed to do a repair installation because when I typed in sfc in the run window, (not sfc /scannow) a black screen appears for a split second then disappears. So what happens when you type in "sfc" without the quotes in the run box? Do I need to do a repair installation?

    Lonman Bleh!

    well, when i type sfc in the run box i get the black screen flash too. I don't have a problem logging into and getting updates. In the run box, type in cmd or command and then type in sfc... it should list the available switch commands for sfc for you. I couldn't tell you whether or not you need to do a repair installation.

    I think I forgot the command prompt when I was doin tech support. Thanks Lonman.
