System keeps checking disk

Hi, I'm not really sure if this section is the most appropriate as I'm not exactly sure what the problem is.

Anyway, every time I start up my laptop, I get a screen telling me that a file on system C: needs checking, and that the type of file is NTFS. It says the disk needs to be checked for consistency and I get a 10-second countdown to cancel it.

Even if I let it run, then this will still come up the next time I start up my laptop.

I'm not really sure what the nature of this problem is or how to solve it. Can anyone help?

Thanks for your reply.

I'm afraid I can't find an error-checking section in the tools tab. I'm not sure if this is because I'm using vista or not... is there a way I can do the same thing another way?

The reason every time you start your laptop and windows starts checking disk is probably because you have some sort of virus or threat on you pc.

I had this happen to me many times, and all it takes is to scan with your virus scanner or spyware scanner and see if that solves the problem.

If you don't have any scanners, then just look on google and research it first so that the scanner is good and safe.

I have The Shield Deluxe 2008. Thanks for your reply - I'll run a scan in the morning and see what happens.

Okay, I ran The Shield this morning. It's detected no viruses anywhere, so I restarted my computer and I got the same file-checking message again.

Argh! How frustrating.

if not getting such tabs try this @ command prompt..

start > run > type 'cmd'

a window wil open
type following command to remove dik checking
CHKNTFS /X volume [...]

other keys and command helps givem below. :

volume Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon),
mount point, or volume name.

/D Restores the machine to the default behavior; all drives are checked at boot time and chkdsk is run on those that are dirty.

/T:time Changes the AUTOCHK initiation countdown time to the specified amount of time in seconds. If time is not
specified, displays the current setting.

/X Excludes a drive from the default boot-time check. Excluded drives are not accumulated between command invocations.

/C Schedules a drive to be checked at boot time; chkdsk will run if the drive is dirty.

If no switches are specified, CHKNTFS will display if the specified drive is
dirty or scheduled to be checked on next reboot.
