Windows scans hard drive on every boot

ok, here is the story. One day I was sitting there playing WoW(like any other moment I'm not sleeping) and my computer froze up and I had to reboot. Upon restarting I got an error on my G drive that trillian.exe was corrupted, so I fixed that no worries...then I scanned the hdd with windows scandisk mabobber and got no problems. Then I scanned with westerndigitals little tool and everything was ok. I cant find anything wrong with the hdd but windows keeps scanning it on EVERY boot(yes I let it finish scanning). It's nice having an OS that cares about my hard drive, but I'm getting tired of it:mad:. Any thoughts or ways to disable the scan? I am going to backup the drive and format the hdd later tonight; let’s hope that fixes it…..? Thanks in advance

Well, glad to see it worked out either way :)

I had noticed you weren't online for awhile after making that post, I figured you had gone to format. :s

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
