I have been trying to defragment and a window pops up saying I have a check
disk command scheduled for volume :( C) and CHKDSK will run when restarted.
It never runs!! I have gone into command and it says it is already scheduled.
have tried system restore and there is no Restore Point. I have Error
Check...nothing.Any ideas?!

Have you rebooted?

You have to reboot in order for chkdisk.exe to run.
