Chkdsk Keeps running at startup with no errors

Hello,
I know that most will answer with use chkdsk /x and that will stop yes but it doesn't cure it after doing that you can never run defrag again. I need a cure once before I found it but I forget how now. There is a way to force chkdsk into marking the drive clean again someone must know how to do this.I do not want to put a bandage on the problem I want to cure it.

  1. There's a lot of missing information here, like which drive is it checking, did you format your drives NTFS, did you leave formatting at default block size ?

    Here you go. Method 2 is probably the culprit/fix.

    There is no missing information.I have asked the question for which I need an answer and I know someone will know it.How you figure I am missing information is beyond me I restarted my system chkdsk started running on one of my drives I can stop it with chkdsk /x but the drive is marked as dirty and it is not and there is a way to force it back to clean thats it nothing more

Some how that part of the registry can get stuck and the only thing you can do to cure it is what it says Thanks again so much I won't forget again lol.
