My computer runs XP Home NFTS. It has suddenly started to want to run Check disk in an endless cycle on start up. When I start up if I allow check disk to run it does so and then starts again. If I stop it running the computer starts up OK and apparently runs perfectly normally. No system restore points work. If I try to defrag whether using Windows defrag or Diskeeper 7, I get a message to the effect that check disk has been set and defragging cannot take place until check disk has been run.
The first click here didn't do anything, nothing appeared to happen after I typed as suggested and pressed enter. Regarding the second click here, it appears to apply to Windows 2000. I have in the past, when using windows 98SE, run the system disc and told it to INSTALL, this has solved several problems. Is it possible that this may correct the problem in XP Home?
The 2K issue is the exact same as XP and what did you type? "chkntfs /x e:" only applies if the scan is occurring on drive "E" the link supplied by Bryan does the exact same....it just does it for you....
