chkdsk stops automatically

Intel / Core2duo

Specs: Windows XP PRO SP3, CORE 2 DUO E8400 @ 3.00GHz/4GB RAM
Like many people's comp's, when I boot up, Chkdsk automatically
starts to check my C: for 'inconsistencies'. However, it never runs, it always stops automatically as if I had pressed any key. I've managed to run chkdsk from recovery console (chkdsk /r), but it is still stopping by itself during the boot. I've altered boot.ini (it was like that:
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

I deleted "noexecute=optin /" but it was of no use. I also took a look at the registry "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager", but it is ok (BootExecute shows "autocheck autochk *" as value. My PC is a new one, this is the 1st time chkdsk tries to run. I'm sure I have no vireuses, trojans or whatsoever. This thing is driving me crazy, does any1 have any idea on what the heck is going on?

Never runs on mine, only if I shut down incorrectly. The fact that it is not finishing is probably why it keeps running. I would boot from the XP cd, into the recovery console and run it from there. Maybe try safemode first.

I have done it already and it doesn't work. Chkdsk does not run always on my PC, but since the very 1st time it tried to run this has been happening. And since it is always automatically canceled, always I boot up it tries unsuccesfully to run
