Chkdsk requires exclusive access to a volume while it is running. Chkdsk might display a prompt asking if you want to check the disk the next time you restart your computer.
Chkdsk might take a long time to run, depending on the number of files and folders, the size of the volume, disk performance, and available system resources (such as processor and memory).
Chkdsk might not accurately report information in read-only mode.

if check disk is popping up so often it maybe thet you have a drive problem or a file problem that checkdisk is not able to fix.

personally i would allow it to run and put my system into standby mode more often. if the issue remains for a long time you might consider doing fresh install or factory restore, if you do this you will fix any file issues, if its a disk problem you may need to run disk check and check auto repair damaged sectors.

a factory restore sets your system to the same day you bought it, so you will need to backup all your files and settings, before running it and also will have to reinstall any extra programs that you installed.

depending on the make of machine, you tap different f keys to get to factory restore..or if you installed win 7 yourself you can just format the drive and start a new installation.

to just change settings for checkdisk open my computer, right click on the drive in question and choose properties/tools, there you can change settings.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....
