Hey, marc, why dont you head over to the Introduction Area and give us all a holler?

"The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere."--Thomas Jefferson

In the Houston computer repair company that I work, I found today that a laptop was not working at all. The problem is that I cannot access Install or Unistall Programs, Msconfig, or sfc /scannow. Every time that I try to run those programs it just go to Open With....window, or C:\Windows\System32\rundll.exe Application not found. I tried on the by going to run section and by the task manager. But everything is the same. My question is that somebody knows where is the sfc.exe program located in Windows or Windows CD. Because that is the only way I can run it, just directly.
