Hello!

First of all, I want to reference some grammar issues. Just read the board rules, by clicking the link in my signature below. Read the seventh bulleted item, please. Thank you!

The link listed above can be your friend. This utility will help disable automatic running of CHKDSK. However, follow this article from time to time so that you can do CHKDSK manually. This is one of the best workarounds.

If you have any questions, or the above option did not work, then post back here!

edit: typo

Are you running an HP scanner? Sometimes not having the correct driver for that can cause check disk to run at startup.

You can also try this, go into the My Computer folder, right click on the disk, then click properties and click on tools. Then under Error Checking, click check now. In the box that opens check both boxes (probably only need to click the bottom but might as well click both). When it says something about having to reboot to do it, reboot and let it run all the way through.

That MIGHT take care of the problem, it has for others. The only reason I am thinking it might not take care of it is that when you have let it run on its own at startup, it has not found any errors, but it cannot hurt to try it and it might work

The article did not get updated. The article should be useful.

I can use CHKNTFS.exe in Windows Vista.

Try it, it should work with you, too.

Microsoft articles are like that. Sometimes a little testing can prove the article wrong. That is why that little feedback is at the bottom of the support pages so you can tell them if it works on a system not listed. Stay cool, friend!
