    sfc /cannow does not work (WindowsXP Home SP2)

    When I try to run sfc /scannow, the process begins, with the blue bar moving very slowly, then a box entitled "Windows File Protection" pops up. The message is:

    Files that are required for Windows to run properly must be copied to the DLL cache.
    Insert your WindowsXP Home Edition CD rom now.
    Retry -- More Information -- Cancel

    The first time I click on Retry, the following message appears:

    If you cancel, Windows might require you to insert a CD later. Are you sure you want skip this file? I then click yes. If I click no, the question just reappears.

    After that, the "Insert your WindowsXP CD" message appears every two or three minutes and I have to click on Retry twice. However, when it finally finishes, it has done nothing.

    I am able to open and search through the WindowsXP CD when I try, so I donít know what is happening. I just want to run this. I have run it before, with no problem. I am trying to run the sfc /scannow now because I am receiving the following message whenever I click on a hyperlink in any program other than on the web:

    This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.

    I never received this until about two weeks ago.

    Thanks!

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Was that link of any help? Also, see You receive an error message when you click a hyperlink in Outlook. Even though it mentions IE6 the same should apply for IE7.

    I wanted you to know that I followed the directions on this site (Mark Liron Site), but I could not get sfc/ scannow to work. I took a chance and emailed Mark. I received an email from one of his consultants, and he was able to help me add a line to the registry, which I did not have. Thanks for the great recommendation. It isn't often I get such personal attention.
