I installed AVG PC Tuneup and one of the recommendations was torun a check disk (I think AVG calls it disk doctor). I ticked the box for the process to run and let the PC restart. Indeed, it started regular chkdsk and started running through the five steps.
steps 1 to 4 did not present any problem (actual terms might be different on an English O/S, please bear with me, as I'm translating from a different language O/S):
1/5 - file check completed
2/5 - index check completed
3/5 - security descriptors completed ; and
USN log check completed
4/5 - files check completed
5/5 - checking available space . . . . . .
I let the chkdsk run overnight an am now waking up to a 73% completed. I'm not sure which disk is being checked. Chkdsk could still be "running" on my C drive, or actually have completed C and went on to the five other partitions on two physical HDs in my PC. I see no reference to what disk is being checked.
What's worse, it's been 73% for more than an hour no and none of my keyboard keys is working. Not just the escape or break commands, also pressing the numlock of capslock keys does not result in the corresponding lights to switch on. Neither is the mouse light on.
I feel like I have no other choice but to forcefully shut down, but I'm reluctant to do so.
The fact that chkdsk has not found any issues (at least insofar I can see on my screen), does that mean that I have less risk of permanent damage when I shut it down? Will chkdsk run again when I reboot and will I end up the same situation? Can anybody please advise what to do?
