To use sfc /scannow in windows 8 put the cursor in the right top edge of the screen & click on Search & scroll to where you find Command Prompt.

Right click it & choose Run as Administrator at the bottom of the screen.

At the blinking _ or the > type in sfc /scannow & press ENTER key.

The scan will start.

It takes a while.

If there is a problem you will probably be asked to insert your Windows 8 CD or DVD.

The link below is where I found this information:

There is some good stuff there.

They have a link to how to use a Command Prompt among other stuff.

Well, I hope this helps someone with Windows 8 & its strange new ways of doing things.:o

This isn't any different than running it in Windows 7 is it?..
Open command prompt as administrator -> type sfc /scannow
