hi am trying to fix display problem on a computer running windows 7, was advised to run the command sfc/scannow but when I try it tells me that I need to be the administrator, can someone point me in the right direction plz

maybe right-click the command prompt (All Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt) and select 'run as administrator'?
