Running Sfc /scannow now and it's just doing nothing. The cursor is still blinking but nothing has happened in 2 hours. Not sure what to do now. Help!

Hello roscoep54

Which OS are you running?

Are you seeing this in command prompt?:

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

It doesn't say anything about scan beginning or anything - thus my concern.

First of all, make sure that you run this command in an elevated Command Prompt (Press Windows + X > Command Prompt (Admin))

Try doing it again. There is a space between sfc and /scannow:
sfc /scannow
