Hello, Bleeping Computer. I have the same problem as DCguy, the chkdsk utility will not work in my Windows 7 operating system. I have tried all of the fixes suggested, to no avail. Restore points are no good due to corruption.
I tried to edit the registry, following dc3's instructions. The value was not correct, but I found 3 lines of text to modify under BootExecute. I made varous edits, and the data value changed to autocheck autochk * Isdelete, which I now see is wrong- I used a capital "eye" after the asterisk instead of lower case "el". So the data value didn't actually change, but when I ran chkdsk after the edits, I got an error message for the first time, saying autocheck could not be found, and is cancelled. Does anyone have more detailed information on the exact registry editing?
Just for fun, I ran chkdsk again just now, and noticed a text message on my desktop:
WARNING! F parameter not specified.
Running CHKDSK in read-only mode.
There followed incomplete results. Can anyone help me with this problem? Thank you.
