Every time I bootup my computer into Windows XP, I get a message saying “One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency.”
The check is performed and reports no problems. Then the computer opens as usual.
After this, if I try to defrag the drive, I get a message saying: “Diskeeper has detected that CDKDSK is scheduled to run. this is due to a user request or because the O.S. has found errors in the file system.”
I cannot defrag the disk even though I have run chkdsk. I cannot open the computer without the chkdsk utility running. I have not scheduled this task to run. How can I cancel this scheduled task???
Please help.

To stop chkdsk from starting on reboot do the following you need to edit the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager

and change the BootExecute value from:
autocheck autochk * /r\DosDevice\<drive letter>:
autocheck autochk *

To make it easier i made a reg file. Just save this regfile to your desktop and double-click on it. When it asks if you want to merge the data say yes.

I would make a back up of your files too.

Always a good practice.
