You know those regular updates that come, saying "Your computer will restart in X days to update"?

 

Well, after my Windows 8 techically forced me to update, it gives me a BSOD (0xC00021A). I can System Restore and fix it (already have), but it's happened before, and I'm fairly sure it'll happen again.

 

I wish to run chkdsk, but I need to know the credentials for doing so.

 

Here's my srttrail folder, if it helps.

Before getting involved with chkdsk, I would just run the update again... but this time turn off your AV.

There were some serious issues caused by some Windows updates released this August 2014.  Not everyone experienced these issues but it's advisable to uninstall the offending updates.  See http://www.zdnet.com/microsoft-pulls-updates-recommends-uninstall-7000032678/

I just did. I still want to chkdsk though.

I'm not sure how to uninstall. And I want to chkdsk too as my Hard Drive has some problems.

Did you read the article?  There's a link in the article that takes you to this Microsoft KB: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2982791

 

Admittedly, the uninstall instructions are buried under other instructions, however, you can follow this Microsoft article.  Even though it's for Windows 7 the procedure is the same.

 

I wish to run chkdsk, but I need to know the credentials for doing so.

 

Would you mind explaining what "credentials" you are talking about?
