I was told to run dbcc checkdb on a Microsoft SQL server database. Exactly where am I supposed to run this? In the SQL Server Configuration Manager? If so, where do I actually type this command?

In management studio click new query and type:

Use [Your database name]
DBCC CheckDB

No you type is into a command or query shell. You can open one using SQLCMD shell if you have the SQL server client components installed. Also you can use the SQL Server Management Studio.
