For some reason my Windows XP Pro insists on running scan disk every time I boot up as if I pressed the reset button at an inappropriate time. It does this every single time I restart the computer whether I do it normally or not. It started doing it after I had to press the restart button while the system was locked up, but I figured that it would run the scan disk once, like normal and be done with it. I didn't think it would have to run the damned thing on every boot. I guess something got screwed up so that the computer thinks that it isn't being shut down properly every time, but I don't know anything about that stuff.

Your computer may be senseing a problem with your hard drive. Make sure your data is backed up in case of failure.

Download and run Everest Home v 1.51 (the last full function freeware version) from oldversion.com and see if it detects your hdd as "healthy".

Something is causing Windows to detect an improper shutdown and therefore the checkdisk at bootup.

You could run the Hitachi Drive Fitness Test found at:


You must create either a bootable diskette or a bootable CD to run it.
This test will usually give you a good indication of the state of your drive.
