Ok have two computers one has xp other vista. Used the sdfix on the xp with no problems at all worked great.

However on the vista the command prompt just flashes up and goes away.

Read how to use and printed directions did both things listed to fix this problem, but neither worked.

To things shown to fix this that i did.

If the Command Prompt window flashes on then off again on XP or Windows 2000

How to fix:


Click on the Start menu, then Run, and then copy and paste the following line into the Run field:

%systemroot%\system32\cmd.exe /K %systemdrive%\SDFix\apps\FixPath.exe

Then click OK, then type Y and press Enter when prompted, Reboot and start SDFix again


Problem:


If SDFix still doesn't run check the %comspec% variable

How to fix:


Click on the Start button then right-click on My Computer and select properties. Then click on the Advanced tab and then click on the Environment Variables. Under System Variables, make sure that the ComSpec variable points to %SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe

SDFix won't work on Vista as it's only for 2000 and XP.

And it's a powerful tool, so it should really be used at your own discretion and not on a routine basis is all I can say. Maybe someone can give you a more detailed explanation?

What does SDfix do.. is it the same as sfc /scannow?

What do you type in RUN to do the SDfix?

SDFix is a powerful malware removal tool. Think of it as something in between MBAM/SAS and HJT/Combofix.....I think.....

Of course, I suck at descriptions...
