You shouldn't disable it. If he is getting it repeatedly turning up on boot then there is either a problem with drivers/hardware or he is not shutting it down correctly.

Get him to run a full chkdsk on each drive when windows is loaded and this should sort his problem. I think it asks if you want to run it or not each time you skip it on boot so you could just leave it to run the next time he boots.

I was just checking (with my previous question) that it was on boot because I have used XP for months on multiple machines in anger - overclocking, fiddling etc - and have never managed to get a chkdsk on boot.

Ritchie, Thanks for the advice, i will find out it he is just goofing off and not caring how he shuts down or there is some other problem! ALEC, Thank you very much for those instructions, i will print them out and keep them for future reference for myself, TOM

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
