Do you just cancel out? Scandisk must be ran on a reboot (mine did it too). It needs to access the system files to check 'em and it wants to have the entire disk to itself so nothing flies apart while it's checking everything. Run it when you're done with the computer for the day and you go to shut down (let it reboot).

I'm asking if you hit Cancel when you're asked to restart. To use Scandisk, you hit OK and let it boot (but only at the end of the day.

That's the way it's designed. They do it so that there isn't a core file messed with wrong (though previous versions of Scandisk never needed that, those big sissies!).
