Every time I switch on my computer or reboot after making changes Scandisk is running saying improper shutdown. I did have an improper shutdown when I got a screenfreeze. Has the harddrive been damaged?
our disk may very well be developing bad sectores and they should be marked as to aviod losing data written to them. You may even consider backing up your good data and purchasing a new hard drive. However, if your a fly by the seat of your pants kinda person and throw caution to the wind, there is another way to disable scandisk running altogether. At the run promt type msconfig and choose the advanced option in the lower right hand corner. You'll be presented with a number of dirrefent troubleshooting options in checkbox style. Half way down you will see "disable scandisk after bad shutdown"...put a check in that box and goodbye blue skies...err screens. Remember though...scandisk is actually there for your protection.
