Exit one or more programs, and then try again." few days ago I got malware on my computer and it messed up something with permissions so i wasnt able to lauch sfc since then (it starts and goes off right away) and it fails with typing in Run "regsvr32 jscript.dll", regsvr32 vbscript.dll, "scrrun.dll". so I tried:
