    Really Tough Question!


    My wife and I are Americans happily retired in Mexico. We upgraded three single language (Spanish) laptops to Windows 10 from 8.1 with no problems. I got into PowerShell but it rejects sfc /scannow. I need the Spanish equivalent, and I can't find it on the web.

    Any brilliant suggestions?

    I don't think you can run SFC from powershell. You should run it from Command Prompt (Admin) that you find by right clicking on the start icon.

    or here:
    Start a Command Prompt as an Administrator

    Go to Task Manager--File--Run New Task and type powershell into the box. Also check the box giving you Administrator Privileges and hit Enter. When PowerShell opens, type sfc /scannow into the command line. It takes about an hour and a half, but it fixed my Start Button.

    So, then what is the issue?

    That may be what makes this a really tough question.

    The issue is that I can get into PowerShell on a Spanish computer. But it rejects sfc /scannow. I need the Spanish equivalent, which I cannot find on the web.

    Hi, as said above, if you open a command prompt window sfc is recognised. That's the most common way I guess.
    To run it, it must be an elevated (admin) command prompt.

    So (e..g.)
    Press windows key + W, click 'command prompt (admin)' and in that window type at the prompt

    sfc /scannow <Return>

    Also an admin powershell window works:

    If you don't see the equivalent on your PC, could you perhaps post a screenshot to show what's going on? Thanks!

    I think "big guess" the issue is, he needs the Spanish spelling for sfc/scannow? But, does it actually work that way?

    Got it! For reasons I don't understand, when you get to the box where you type powershell (in an English version), you have to type sfc /scannow.

    It is running now.

    Thank you for all your help.
