The chkdsk runs EVERY time I boot up WinXP. I have 2 hard drives one is 10GB and used for backing up stuff. My other drive is 80GB and partioned into 10GB for WinXP, 40GB for Games, and 30GB for pics, vids, music etc. The chkdsk states it's checking my Games partition. If I let it run it says everything is okay and boots up into Windows as always.
No problems are evident in my WinXP partition. I just reinstalled WinXP, but this problem was happeneing before that. My PC is up and running, i have no malware, spyware, viruses etc. I know because of this previous topic of virus. I am as clean as a whistle.

Should I even mess with this? Or should I let sleeping dogs lie, as this might open up a whole other mess?

if you run Msconfig (start > run > Msconfig) and go to the Startup tab, ther should be something with Chkdsk there, simply uncheck it and reboot. when XP reboots click the checkbox "do not show this again.." and it should no longer do scans

What drive is it chkdsking?

Lets try something:

Download the attached batch file and save it to your desktop. When finished downloading, double-click on dirty.bat and post the output of the resulting notepad as a reply to this topic.

When done you can delete the dirty.bat.

hate to make an admin look kinda dumb, but it was stated:

The chkdsk states it's checking my Games partition.



on a side note: it's nice to see the admins actually active here.

Try this.

Start> Run> type: cmd then hit OK.
At the command prompt, type: chkntfs /d then hit Enter.
Restart your computer.
