Checkdisk runs everytime you reboot in Win XP. How can you disable this?


Windows XP runs this Autocheck always. If it detects that there is a bit problem on a partition (indicating an abnormal shutdown of the system OR that the file system has detected an inconsistency during normal operation and automatically scheduled chkdsk to run) then and only then will it actually run CHKDSK on the indicated partitions.

1st solution:

1. Go to: Start – Run – and type: Regedit (enter)

2. Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager

3. On the right side look for (or create the dword value): AutoChkTimeOut
Double Click and set to 0 (zero) to disable.

2nd solution:

To run chkdsk on d:

1. Go to start > run and type “cmd”. At the command prompt type “chkdsk d: /r” (without quotes)

2. If it prompts to dismount the volume say “Yes”

[You should run “chkdsk /r” on each drive – and we suggest doing so from the Recovery Console]

Hope this solves your problem….

So, it might just stopped doing it… If problem persists check with your maintenance staff.
