    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?

    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.
