Chkdsk nuisance!

Not sure why but my E: drive which 1 of 3 slaves has been auto checking the disk at the start of every Windows startup (before desktop). No I never set up System Scheduling to check E: on every startup and since I use USB keyboard I cannot skip the chkdsk so I'm forced to watch it til I get rid of it. When I try to defrag the disk I get this message:



Any easy way to get rid of my nuisance?

0008 ยป 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 * /.........

To:
autocheck autochk *

Which is what I see in my registry :) So this isn't going to fix my problem because I've made no changes- any other ideas?

You could probably change the USB keyboard setting in your BIOS from "OS" to "BIOS" or however you BIOS puts it. That way you can use it before getting into Windows.

you might want to actually run chkdsk...I'll bet you need to run chkdsk /f from the recovery console when you boot from the xp cd....or maybe it was chkdsk /p i forget...the recovery console has wierd commands..

It's the type deal where I don't even feel like figuring it out or finding exactly what it is I need to undo or disable the feature that makes this chkdsk F: everytime i restart. I'm more interested in getting rid of it period rather than avoiding it I still gotta look at it.
