    WinXP has a very annoying and repeating feature: in case of any improper shutdown it launches it's disk-check utility on the after coming boot of the computer. In any previous windows OS this feature could be cancelled, but in spite of all my efforts I didn't find the solution to this problem.
    Does anyone know how to check this off?

    just convert to ntfs, it won't need to do the checks then. Turning them off can be nice, but your disk will eventually get corrupted, or loose alot of space.

    Open regedit and navigate to HKey_Local_Machine\System\Current Control Set\Control\Session Manager and locate the Boot Execute Multi-String value. Right click and select Modify. Enter the value "autocheck autochk*" without the quotes. If the string doesn't exist just add it. ;)
