A while ago I scheduled a disk check on next startup and for some reason every day it does a disk check. It isn't coming up with any errors and it reports back fine every day.

Is there any way I can stop this, as adds a lot of wasted time on booting. I'm running windows 7 x64.

thanks.

Hi, as you have established the drive is showing as not dirty then I suspect the registry is corrupt open regedit and navigate to:-

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
Change the BootExecute entry from:
autocheck autochk * /.
To:
autocheck autochk *

Or else try this :
Start> Run> bring up a command prompt by typing in “CMD” (make sure it is running elevated.. ie as administrator) and type:-


Code:
CHKNTFS /X c:
Press enter. The X tells Windows to NOT check that particular drive (c) on the next reboot. At this time, manually reboot your computer, it should not do a Chkdsk and take you directly to Windows.

Once Windows has fully loaded, bring up another CMD prompt (elevated) and now you want to do a Chkdsk manually by typing

Code:
Chkdsk /r c:
This should take you through 5 stages of the scan

Note:- This assumes "C" is the drive if not change to the correct drive letter.
