Hello,

When my PC boots, I will see a blue screen that says autochk program not found - skipping autochk. Then the PC restarts. Now, I have a recovery console for Windows XP installed on a different partition. I went in there and tried to copy autochk back to the Windows partition. I was able to copy it from the recovery console with the following command: copy /autochk.exe c:\windows\autochk.exe and I also tried it with copying it to c:\windows\system32\autochk.exe.
Yet, the issue persists. Then I did what they suggest at the Microsoft help page: c:\i386\autochk.exe %WINDIR%\system32 and then I got the answer: access denied. I tried to copy the following: c:\i386\autochk.exe and again got: access denied.

I do not have a Windows XP CD and I only have a floppy disk drive on the desktop that is affected with this problem.

Does anyone have a solution or ideas? Why did I get the access denied message?

Thanks,
damien

Since you have access to the Recovery Console...might as well try running the command chkdsk /r.
