Running SFC

I like SFC alot and it has solved a lot of problems I have had in the past with my Vistax64 machine. Latest problem is windows won't boot, can't restore, can't repair, can't safe mode, can't go to last known good... If i try to run SFC at the command prompt, i get a message that I have a pending repair, and need to reboot. However, since I cannot boot up into windows, this remains always. Is there a way to work via the command prompt to stop this pending repair, so that I can try the SFC to resolve problems I am experiencing??

Appreciate any help...

thanks,

thor

Lemur: That's ok. Searched and found that means administrator.

I am sitting at the command prompt now with:

X:\Administrator ..blahblahblah.. \cmd.exe

How do I determine the name of the service that is running the pending repair???

Sorry I'm such an idiot..
