Hey guys. Sorry to bother you again but when I try to reset the Dirty Bit:

* chkdsk /f /r C: <--- (To manually run a full chkdsk operation on the specified drive)
* Y <--- (To accept having it run on the next boot)

This should take you through 5 stages of the scan and will unset the Dirty Bit.


my computerstops at step 3 again (even when it says 100 complete) causing me to have to manually reset my computer again.

Let's start with the correct command. Please run checkdisk as follows and see if the results are any better:


To run checkdisk, right-click on a command prompt icon and open as administrator. In the command prompt window type: chkdsk /r  (then press ENTER). You'll be told the disk is in use and asked if you want to run checkdisk on the next boot. Say yes, exit the command prompt window, and reboot.
