If you're using RDP then do the following:

Create a shortcut on your desktop to C:\Windows\System32\mstsc.exe
Hit next.
Give it a Friendly name.
Hit OK.
Right-click the new shortcut and change the Path to target to the following:  C:\Windows\System32\mstsc.exe -console
Hit OK.

Now, when you launch RDP you will connect to the console session of whatever machine you are RDPing into.

This should allow you to run SFC /scannow properly.
