    Yes, it is still in Vista. The command needs to be run from an elevated
    Command Prompt. Click Start, type cmd into the Start/Search box,
    right-click cmd.exe in the list above and select 'Run as Administrator'.

  4. Right-click on CMD.EXE and you'll find the "Run as Administrator" option.

    Quoting Jane C:

    "Click Start, type cmd into the Start/Search box, right-click cmd.exe in the list above and select 'Run as Administrator'."

    An easy way to do all this is drag a shortcut of command prompt to the start
    menu. To get to sfc, right click the shortcut and select "run as
    A-----------." Should work for you. Did for me
