When I try and Disk defrag a message comes up..."Disk degramenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume C:/f. (C . Please run Chkdsk /f. " What is this and where and how do I run this? I have trying everything. But I am pretty Computer dumb.
1.Click the Windows "Start" menu on the desktop and click "Run" (Windows XP) or "Start Search" (Windows Vista or 7).
2.Type "regedit" in the search box and press "Enter" to launch the registry.
3.Click "+" under the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" folder to expand it. Click the "SYSTEM" folder and click the "CurrentControlSet" folder. Click the "Control" folder, then click the "Session Manager" folder.
4.Double-click "BootExecute" on the right pane. You should see the default value of the key set as autocheck autochk * (With asterisk). The asterisk (*) means Windows checks every drive for consistency. Add "/K:C" to the end of the autocheck autochk * After the addition, the final value should look like this : autocheck autochk /k:C *
5.Click "File" and click "Exit" to close the registry. Restart your computer. The disk check no longer launches at computer start up.
