    Unhappy Disk check at every boot

    Hello all I have windows vista home premium 32-bit and my problem is that when ever I need to boot my system it wants to do a disk check every time so I have already looked in regedit and saw hkey local machine is not set up to do a disk check every time with these steps

    Run regedit
    Edit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ CurrentControlSet\ Control\ Session Manager
    Change the BootExecute entry from:
    autocheck autochk * /.
    autocheck autochk *

    any other ideas of how to troubleshoot this most appreciated

    Hello...Do you have any programs (Imaging or Defrag ) that have this (boot time chkdsk run ) as a selectable option at boot time? Regards Fred

    PS: you can also try to run Administrator "Command Prompt" and enter "chkntfs /x c:" no quotes

    Check for the presence of a dirty bit.
    1. click on your start menu and open the run dialog.
    2. type "cmd" and ctrl shift return (note: dont enter quotes)
    3. Next type "fsutil dirty query c:"
    4. If the return message indicates that the volume is dirty go to step 5
    5. Next type "chkdsk e: /f /x"
    6. After that finshes repeat step 3.
    7. If it is no longer dirty then reboot and you should notice no more ckdisk
