ScanDisk Doesn't Run Automatically

Scandisk doesn't run automatically after incorrect shut down any more on my W98 PC.
It will run from 'Accessories'.
Any thoughts on this one?

Perhaps your MSDOS.SYS file has been adjusted. The line


may have been added. This would stop Scandisk automatically running after an incorrect shutdown. Take a copy of the file for safekeeping and try adjusting that line to read


in the original MSDOS.SYS file. That should cure your problem, but if anything goes wrong you still have the copy to replace the file you have altered.

Peter - thanks for that. I have tried it and the Autoscan is set at 1.

Still looking!
