To disable Scandisk on startup:
Go to Start > Run.Type msconfig and hit enter.
Click Advanced, and select the "Disable Scandisk after bad shutdown" option.
Click OK,OK and then Yes to restart your machine.

Check your Startup folders in all accounts and remove the shortcut to it if
one is found. I think you mean chkdisk; type that in Search and see if
shortcuts are listed anywhere, especially the Startup folders. If this
fails, try other responses and suggestions.

"Go to Start > Run.Type msconfig and hit enter.
Click Advanced, and select the "Disable Scandisk after bad shutdown" option"

I Tried the above but i have no Advanced option in there.

I also tried this:
"Check your Startup folders in all accounts and remove the shortcut to it if
one is found. I think you mean chkdisk; type that in Search and see if
shortcuts are listed anywhere, especially the Startup folders."

I did a search for chkdisk but found no files or shortcuts.

Any more suggestions would be appreciated.

There are two typical reasons for this. One is that a command to run chkdsk
on startup is set in the scheduler or elsewhere. The other is that there is
a hard disk problem that scandisk is not able to fix. See
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=831426

Note - If you do not find a task set to run chkdsk and it does appear to be
a disk problem, look in event viewer for an Application Winlogon event where
you may find info about the specific errors. Run chkdsk /f /r in a command
prompt which will run a scan for bad sectors. On rare occasions, disk
errors may occur (especially on NTFS drives) that chkdsk cannot fix. If you
find that to be the case, post back with details.

Thanks for the help guy's i appreciate it.
I have nothing running or set to run in the scheduler.

This is what happens when i boot:
1) power on
2)chkdsk , scandisk starts i press delete to skip.
3)sometimes it boots ok from here and other times it will completely restart
the boot sequence like it's lost power then finds it again.

I've let chkdsk , scandisk run its course but it makes no deferent's because
when the computer trips back to boot sequence it tries to do it all over
again.

My system is:
AMD 2.16Ghz
Windows XP Home, SP2
1GB ram
BT Broadband internet connection
Graphics: ATI Radeon 9200 series




I have Norton firewall and AVG Anti Virus Enabled.

What hard drive and how is the BIOS set?

How are you shutting down? And, is the hard drive FAT32 or
NTFS?
