Windows – error in the cmd window regarding sfc/ scan now

cmd.exewindows 7

When I try to run SFC /SCAN NOW in the command line window, it states "windows resource protection could not run/start the repair service". How can I fix this?

I tried running the system restore, with no success.

Is it possible that a keylogger is installed in my computer? How do I get rid of this?

  • Open the Services MMC Snapin (services.msc) and look for a service called Windows Modules Installer and make sure the service is started.

    If you use a 64Bit Windows, make sure you run the 64Bit cmd.exe and not the 32Bit one.
