Still need help!!!WinXP-insists on doing"consistencycheck"..

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.newusers (More info?)

I'm still looking for some help with this problem!
The one reply I received previously did not suggest a solution t0o the
problem.
I've done a HD diagnostic check with WD software and no problems exist
with the HD according to it
As posted before.

I'm running WinXP home edition with SP 1, my WD 160 HD is partioned "C"
and "D", at boot-up it insists on doing a "consistency check" on D:, and
finds nothing wrong and continues the boot-up .
This all started a couple of days ago after I accepted a MS security
upgrade, I also made the mistake of geting a ATI card driver update from
MS at the same time.
Before I downloaded these two upgrades I had to "upgrade" the MS
"Upgrade software to get the MS Upgrade page.
I have since deleted the ATI driver upgrade and went back to my old
driver.
I have searched and found a couple of suggestions for the problem.
One that the system is not writing back all of the cached-hard-disk-
drive information before it turns off the computer. The solution is a
patch for this bug in Service Pack 1 for WinXP(SP1), but as I said I
already have SP1 installed, So is there part of SP1 that I can run
again?
Two it might be the "WaitToKillAppTimeout" setting in the registry, mine
is set at 20000 which I believe is pretty much standard.
So "What me do now?"(G)
Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated, this consistency
checking is driving me nuts.
