I have stopped chkdsk running at startup but the pop up warning keeps happening with increasing regularity

Did you do what the Diskeeper FAQs said about the problem - seems like a good place to start to me !

In a Command window you can run

fsutil dirty query C:

to check whether the dirty bit is set. If it is, Diskeeper will not run. It also tells you about the dirty bit.

If you want to disable (even if only temporarily) write caching - which should mean the dirty bit is less likely to be set - Go to Device Manager - right click on the drive in question - go to Properties and click - go to Policies and open the tab - take the tick out of wrtite caching.

See if this helps.

HOWEVER - If the problem is due to the dirty bit getting set frequently, this indicates either a serious disk problem - software corruption of some kind, somewhere - other software interfering with the process (have you loaded anything which could be a culprit?). The Diskeeper FAQ says the only cure in those circumstances is some kind of Windows reƱoad/repair!

Start / Run / Type chkdsk /f.
It will offer to run disk on next bootup. Re-boot and let chkdsk run. Problem gone (for me atleast)
