How can I stop CHKDSK from running on startup?

CHKDSK turned on somehow and now every time I start my Pc it runs this program.  It is on my hard drive and takes a long time to startup!  How can I stop the program from running at startup?

The next time your system starts and installs, you should check the bit of impurity of the volume as follows:

Click Start, run and enter in the box:

cmd

Click OK to open the command prompt window.

To query the bit of impurity on drive C, type:

fsutil dirty query C:

The sample output:
Volume c is dirty
Volume C: is dirty

Type "exit" to close the command prompt window.

Is your disc dirty or it is not dirty?    If you have more than one volume, check all out them.

A volume is marked usually dirty of a power outage or something like using the power button to restart the system.  One of this kind of thing has happened before this problem?

The command chkntfs /d to clear a chkdsk waiting you plan yourself, but it does not clear the dirty bit.

The command chkntfs /X C: never say XP check the reader for inconsistencies again and perhaps not a good idea since the reader may really need that chkdsk to run on it.  If the dirty bit is just NOT clear, no matter what you do, your HARD disk may be failing / failed.

The only way to clear the dirty bit is a success of chkdsk /r and if she will not clear at the start of your system, I would run it from the XP Recovery Console so you can watch it run and if you like, run it again until it runs its own.  You cannot check the good bit of impurity of the XP Recovery Console, but you can see what chkdsk/r.

Since we don't know anything about your system, here are some instructions for making a CD of bootable XP Recovery Console and from there, you can run chkdsk/r until it comes clean.

Boot into the Recovery Console Windows using an XP bootable installation CD.

If you have no XP bootable media (or aren't sure you have) create a bootable XP Recovery CD of Console and do not forget.

This is not the same as recovery disks that might have come with the acquisition of the system store.

You can make a bootable Recovery Console CD by downloading an ISO file and burn it to a CD.

The ISO bootable image file you need to download is called:

xp_rec_con. ISO

Download the ISO from here:

http://www.mediafire.com/?ueyyzfymmig

Use a new CD and this simple and free program to burn your ISO file and create your bootable CD:

http://www.ImgBurn.com/

When you install ImgBurn, DO NOT install the Ask toolbar.

Here are some instructions for ImgBurn:

It would be a good idea to test your bootable CD on a computer running.

You may need to adjust the computer BIOS settings to use the CD-ROM drive as the first device to boot instead of the hard drive.  These adjustments are made before Windows tries to load.  If you miss it, you will need to restart the system again.

When you start on the CD, follow the instructions:

Press any key to boot from CD...

Installing Windows... going to pronounce.

Press 'R' to enter the Recovery Console.

Select the installation that you want to access (usually 1: C:\WINDOWS)

You may be asked to enter the password (usually empty).

You should be in the folder C:\WINDOWS.  It's the same as the

C:\Windows folder that you see in Solution Explorer.

The Recovery Console allows base as file commands: copy, rename, replace, delete, chkdsk, fixboot, fixmbr, cd, etc.

For a list of the commands in the Recovery Console, type help at the prompt of commands or read on here XP Recovery Console:

http://www.Microsoft.com/resources/documentation/Windows/XP/all/proddocs/en-us/recovery_console_cmds.mspx?mfr=true

A good idea before you start things must first verify the integrity of your file system by using the chkdsk command.

In the command prompt window, run the chkdsk command on the drive where Windows is installed to try to fix any problems on the afflicted player.

Running chkdsk is fine, even if he finds no problem.  It won't hurt anything to run it.

Assuming your boot drive is C, run the following command:

CHKDSK C: /r

Let chkdsk finish to correct the problems, he could find.

It may take a long time for chkdsk complete or they seem to be "stuck".  Be patient.  If the HARD drive led blinks always, chkdsk is something.  Keep an eye on the amount of the percentage to be sure that it is still making progress.  It may even seem to go back sometime.

You must run chkdsk/r again until it finds no error to correct.

Remove the CD, and then type "exit" to exit the RC and restart the computer.

You have not to set the BIOS to boot the disk HARD since the CD won't be.

    I'm sorry it explained not completely. I will try. Default apps cannot be uninstalled or removed. You can go into management applications in the settings and force closes, but it can start up if the operating system decides that she needs. There is an application that will allow you to hide the icons, but I don't remember the name. I don't know of a setting in the calendar application to prevent it from running. You might want to make sure that it is not set to automatically synchronize. This could be the reason why he is running. So the only way I know to keep them from running in the background is using a task killer, so the answer is always the same. I hope that I have cleared it up a little bit.

  • How can I stop MSN Messenger running at startup in Windows 7?

    The options listed for XP or Vista don't work or are not available in Windows 7. I prefer not to uninstall it completely, but if it's the only option, I'll have to. Any suggestions?

    Hello richy1995,

    Thanks for posting on the Microsoft answers Forum.

    You can try the Windows Installer Cleanup tool. It helps with programs that are installed by using an .msi package.
    It does not uninstall the program and will not remove the actual program from your computer. However, it will remove the installation files so that you can start the installation, upgrade, or uninstall on. Click here to download the utility.

    Then, use the instructions below to uninstall MSN Messenger.

    • Go to the Control Panel
    • Click on Add/Remove Programs
    • Scroll down to find and then click MSN Messenger
    • Click Remove

    Follow the prompts that results, and MSN Messenger are uninstalled.

    If you talk about Live Messenger,
    Go to add/remove programs
    Click Windows Live Essentials
    Click Change/Remove
    You will get an option to uninstall part of windows live essentials, which includes messenger 2009.

    Hope these instructions for your question.

    Sincerely,

    Hello
    I bought a used desktop computer. After setting it up again to what I had before I find the computer comes on every Saturday night at the same time. How can I stop this from happening?
    If anyone has an answer for me please give him in singles and not "computer language".
    Thank you
    Gunter

    Your best course of action would be to do a complete new installation of Windows.  Not sure how this computer has been maintained or used.  She could have anything whatsoever thereon against malware of illegal material.

    Although the automatic turn on every Saturday night is probably trivial (for example, some application checking to see if there are updates), it could be malware "phone home" with your personal information (bank accounts, passwords, etc.).

    This TechNet article provided by 'Support' engineer is not likely to be useful for you.  For Windows XP (you posted your question in a Windows XP forum), open scheduled as follows:

    Click Start > click on all programs > point to Accessories > tap System Tools > and then click scheduled tasks.

    Review each of the tasks listed to determine what they are doing.  You can then decide if you want to remove one of them.  You should consider, however, that there may be other mechanisms that cause your computer turn on as you describe.

    It is a good number with a boot drive (C:\ drive) that is cruelly of free space.

    A healthy walk NEEDS 20% free space at least to work properly and prevent your suspension system.

    Several causes are possible, but check your free space. Upgrade your hard drive if necessary.

    I used him copy / paste to add several checkboxes on my form, but now in preview mode when I check the first box it automatically checks all the boxes.  How can I stop this from happening?

    For later use, it happened because your fields have the same field name, and fields with the same name automatically have the same value.

    So all you had to do was so each had a unique name and it would have worked, but using the command create several fields is preferable because it renames the fields for rename you them.
