I've just done this. It ran the scan but finished with nothing in the command prompt. Here's a copy and paste in any case:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>sfc /scannow

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>

I forgot to close Chrome whilst the test ran. I didn't use it, but it was open. Would that make any kind of difference?
