HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. The other Experts and I are working on your answer. By the way, it would help us to know:
- Do You Recive Any Error Message ?

Thank you again for trusting us with your problem. Please reply as soon as possible so that we can finish answering your question.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.

I do not receive any error messages. It just flashes for a second and then refuses to open. Even if I right click so it says open and then click on that, it won't open. However there are no error messages at all. I hope you can figure out an answer. Thank you

I started windows XP in safe mode. I then typed in SFC/scannow in the run window. It comes up with an error message to make sure that I typed the command correctly. It doesn't understand that command. Now what? Thanks Henry

Hi ,

There Is A Space Between SFC And /scannow Did You Enter It Correctly ?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
No, I didn't realize that there was a space. I'm going to try it now. I'll write you back. Should this fix the problem by itself without me doing anything more?


Im Wating For Your Reply

It will not run in safe mode, however it will run in regular mode. I decided to run it in regular mode. It aksed for my copy of Windows XP which I gave it. It's running the the scan now. What is really interesting is that in the control panal, the internet options doesn't even appear with a name under it. It's just the icon. I'll let you know how this scan works out. thanks henry

OK..I ran it but nothing happened. It ran the entire scan and came back with no messages. I still can't open Internet Options in the control panel. What's next?
