every boot chkdsk run for only one partition.

Specs: Windows XP, pentium iii 512 mb ram
my hard disk 160 gb, has 4 partition 40 gb each. the F drive is almost full 39 gb.The system seems to think that there is a sheduled chkdsk for F drive on the next reboot. When I went to do a defrag the F drive, it told me that there was a scheduled chkdsk /f that needed to be done before I could do a defrag. During every reboot, it tries to do a chkdsk. Is there a way to deactivate this .

Stop CHKDSK from running at boot time
1.Edit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
2.Change the BootExecute entry from:

autocheck autochk * /.........


autocheck autochk *

If you have scheduled CHKDSK for multiple volumes, there will be an autocheck entry for each volume. Delete the string from the BootExecute registry value for each volume you do not want checked. If you have NT 4.0, SP2, a new command line utility, CHKNTFS, will assist in preventing repeated CHKDSKs during reboots if the "dirty" bit is set. Type CHKNTFS /? and see KB article Q160963.
