    If you are having any difficulty finding the Admin Powershell Command, right click the Start Button.

    This is what you should see if using Powershell.

    Then you press the big Enter key on your keyboard to start it.

    It takes some time. Patience.
    @dalchina, your picture is wrong. You need a space after the "SFC"

    It is
    sfc /scannow or SFC /SCANNOW
    not
    SFC/SCANNOW

    Uppercase or Lowercase doesn't matter.

    Actually, you don't. Try it with any command, it will work the same with or without a space before the first switch.

    eg. dir/? is the same as dir /?

    No in PowerShell it isn't - only in the old legacy CMD prompt which was not the picture shown.
