Recently, my scan disc begins with normal startup of my PC. Whether I shut it down totally, or "restart", I get the scan disc that says improper shutdown was detected. This is not the case. It seemed to begin when Trend Micro send an email saying that one of their update patches was bad and that it caused PC's to consume resources. I have removed that patch but I'm having the problem indicated above. I'm wondering if I've quarantined something in Ad-Aware that I should not have. Recent quarantines include ISIB, Quadrogram, Peopleonpage, and cookies. Also, my boot log shows dynamicload failed "00086FAF" and failed "windows\system\msexreg.exe" and windows\system\ide21201.vxd. Does this mean anything to anyone?? I always have to cancel my scandisc because it keeps restarting. This happens even if I disable system restore and my antivirus program. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

(And scan disc is not in my list of startup programs)

Hi vin3yard and welcome to BC

What is your operating system?

I always have to cancel my scandisc because it keeps restarting

Until you allow scandisk to finish, that will reoccur. It won't stop trying until it completes.

Take a look at your scandisk.log. It can be found at C:\scandisk.log. There may be some pertinent info there.

ide21201.vxd. - This is a Windows utility that identifies hard drives. The fact that it is failing to load could be because it has recently been reported as a trojan and is posssiblly quarantined. The best way to fix that would be to extract it from your OS CD. If you can't extract it, don't worry about it. The Load command may have been placed by the malware. This is currently the second most prevalant threat being reported by Pest Patrol.

msexreg.exe - Threat category: AdwareSource: msexreg.exe,Description: The compressed file msexreg.exe within C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\netut80ex.vxd is a Adware threat.

See above. A failed load is a good thing sometimes. Viruses frequently put Run or Load commands in your Win.ini and System.ini and registry for their own purposes. If your AV programs remove those files without removing the bogus run commands then your bootlog will report the load as failed, even though there is nothing wrong with that.

00086FAF - What is the line in your bootlog above that?

A clean bootlog with no failures is a very rare thing. Something that I have never seen.

Let scandisk complete and your problem should go away.
