scan disk on every boot

#1
Hey everyone. Seem to have a problem. I shut down correctly each night. Every boot up scan disk runs (or tries to ). I am making sure I shut extra programs down such as my messengers and virus protections. What could be causing this? Little nerve racking. I am running W7 build 7100

Have you ever just let it run through i can't find any setting on my system to set it to run everytime i boot but i think if you tell it to scan C: and continually cancel it it will try on every reboot until successful.

Did you just install Windows 7 or has it been up and running for a while?

I have tried to both let it run through and canceled it. When it does can it never finds anything.

If this just occurred and you have not installed any new software or made any other major changes to the PC, I would perform a System Restore.

Before doing that, go to Start > Run, and type msconfig. Uncheck all entries except for your anti-virus, spyware detector, and personal fire wall if you have one.

Also go to Start > All Programs, locate the Startup folder and make sure it's empty.
