Try this:

  • Click the Start orb, type cmd and press [Enter].

     

     

     

  • Type fsutil dirty query x: (where x: is your boot drive) and press [Enter]. This queries your boot drive, and more than likely it will tell you that it is dirty.

     

     

     

  • Type chkntfs /x x: (where x: is your boot drive) and press [Enter]. The /x tells Windows NOT to check that particular drive on the next reboot.

     

     

     

  • Manually reboot your computer, it should not do a chkdsk and should take you directly to normal Windows login.

     

     

     

  • Once Windows has fully loaded, click the Start orb, type cmd and press [Enter]. Reply with a Y when asked if you want this to happen on the next boot. This should take you through 5 stages of the chkdsk scan and will unset that dirty bit. This can take an hour or more depending on the size of your hard drive, but be patient and let it complete.

     

     

     

  • Once booted back to Windows, click the Start orb, type cmd and press [Enter] again.

     

     

     

  • Query the dirty bit again by typing fsutil dirty query x: (where x: is your boot drive) and Windows will confirm that the dirty bit is now not set on that drive.

Rather than canceling it...you probably ought to run the chkdsk /r command on your Windows partition.  When the auto 3-step chkdsk runs at boot...that's normally a sign that the user needs to run the chkdsk /r command on the Windows partition.  Once that is done, the auto chkdsk should cease.

SpywareDoc has it right, this is known as a stuck dirty bit and the result is that the machine wants to run check disk on every boot.  My guess is that kingshillhoo probably let the check disk run quite a few times and has been wondering why it happens on every boot.
