Chkdsk

Chkdsk is running at every boot. I've tried all the suggestions I can find but still it runs.

On the suspicion that the hard drive was failing, I downloaded and ran the extended test via Western Digital's diagnostics tool - both my hard disks passed.

Any ideas, please?

I experienced a similar thing very recently on a laptop - I just kept pressing any key to stop chkdsk each time, after a while it just stopped reappearing, has not come back again.

Have you tried letting chkdsk run its full course?

I have had similar, kept wanting to run on one of my partitions, worked out to be a corrupt file.
Formatted partition put back files from backup,
NO MORE CHKDSK...

Start - run - regedit

navigate to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager]
"BootExecute"=hex(7):00,00

and set the above value.

exit regedit.

Thanks very much for all the suggestions but the problem remains - looks like I'm going to have to format.

...did you let chkdsk finish as Dark Mantis advised? The program won't start for no reason and should be allowed to finish - even if it takes some hours to complete.

Every chkdsk was allowed to run its full course, martjc.

...I'd back everything up, then replace the HDD. Are you running the disk in S.M.A.R.T. mode?
