"CHKDSK E:" runs everytime my system boots. Further when I try to defragment E, it says,

"Disk Defragmenter has detected that CHKDSK is scheduled to run on the volume E. Please run CHKDSK/F"

Although I don't see it in scheduled tasks, even after enabling "View hidden tasks" in Advanced menu. Also, I have that "ctfmon.exe" problem related to ctfloader and CoolWebSearch {Spybot S&D startup list (Paul Collin's startup list)}. Finally, taskbar freezes when I log in. Could these be related?

I had this problem earlier also. It disappeared when I formatted the volume, which now is not a viable option because of the large amount of data on that volume.

Help please. Thanks in advance.

CHECK DISK RUNS EVERY TIME BOOTUP

Click on the Start menu and open the run dialog.
2. Type "cmd" and return (without quotes)
3. Next type "fsutil dirty query <letter of drive that chkdsk keeps checking>" (for example, C:
4. If the returned message indicates that the volume is dirty, go to step 5
5. Next type "chkdsk <drive letter> /f /x"
If you get this below answer YES.
Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
checked the next time the system restarts? <Y/N>
6. After that finishes, repeat step 3.
7. If the volume is no longer dirty, reboot and chkdsk should not reappear

Just FYI - at times the "dirty" flag on a volume will get stuck in the "dirty" state. If the volume is marked as "dirty" Windows will check it at every reboot.

I recommend the command chkdsk /f /r (which some say is redundant because the /r implies the /f) and rebooting to let it work it's magic. If it's still marked dirty, then the "solution" is to backup all of your data and format the drive.

Thank you bicycle bill, usasma and quietman7 :inlove:
Thanks a lot guys :flowers:

But there is one thing. See, I actually ran CHKDSK/X/V/F/R :thumbsup: a couple of times before posting this problem here. After trying your methods (except formatting the volume), I ran CheckDisk through windows GUI (Right click volume > Properties > Tools....). Thats when the problem actually disappeared :cool:

I mean, are they not equivalent? :) I think they are. Isn't that weird? :trumpet:
