Hi there,

I recently installed TuneUp Utilities 2010 on my new computer. I keep my computer fresh with antivirus definitions and take really good care of it. While my main letter drive [K:] is not dirty, TuneUp Utilities advised that I should run CHKDSK during the next start-up to keep it running smoothly. I knew I didn't need it but proceeded anyway.

On the next start-up, CHKDSK was taking too long and when I tried to cancel it -- I couldn't! It kept blocking my keyboard so now every time I try to reboot my computer in to normal Windows I cannot! I am writing this message using UBCD4Win. Is there anyway that I can cancel CHKDSK from running? Please keep in mind I am on UltimateBootCD4Windows! (UBCD4Win)! Please, please help.

Any help will be GREATLY appreciated. I cannot let CHKDSK run because in TuneUp Utilities I selected "thorough analysis" and I have 500GB worth of files on this main hard drive -- it would take forever!

On my systems...before chkdsk will run after a reboot...a screen comes up which states that a disk check is scheduled and gives the user the opportunity to cancel such.

You don't get such screen?

Remove TuneUP Utilities it is a useless program and causes more headaches then it is worth.
