I thought I could figure out how to run chkdsk /f . How do I run chkdsk

I ran chkdsk /f in administrator account. Clicked "start" then opened a
window. Typed CD\ to get to root directory. Then typed in chkdsk /f.
Below is the message I got:
"Access Denied as you do not have sufficient privileges.
You have to invoke this utility running in elevated mode."

I am on a 32-bit Vista Home Premium (SP1) box.

Thanks for the help
