    What you want to do is go to Start - Run and type:
    chkdsk /c
    Then reboot and checkdisk will run. Alternatively you can schedule it from within My Computer, but the command line option is easier (for me, anyway).

    But are you sure it's the /c switch you want to run?

    if you want to set up any program to start at the start up then use RegCleaner.It has this feature.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ControlSession Manager
    Dword Value: AutoChkTimeOut
    Set the value for a number between 1 & 10 (that's seconds to countdown).

    Again, do you really want the chkdsk /c switch? Why would you run the /c switch?

    BTW - the above will not run with the /c switch, it will just run autocheck.

    To repair, you may still have to run chkdsk /r

    The purpose of the /c switch is to tell checkdisk NOT to check cycles withing the folder structure. You really don't need checkdisk running at every start. All you need to do if you think you have a problem is go to start - run and type:

    chkdsk c: /r

    ENTER

    Then reboot and let checkdisk run and repair any errors it finds (it will do that automatically - that's what the /r switch tells it to do). That's all - once should be enough.
