Start/all programs/accessories/system tools/scheduled tasks. Click on the
Scheduled Task icon, a box will come up with "Add Scheduled Task" at the
top. Click on that and it will take you through a wizard to add what you
want. Use the "browse" button to go to windows/system32/ and click on
chkdsk.exe. The rest you can see pretty easy.

Note that if you run checkdisk on your Windows system drive, usually C:,
via "chkdsk c:" then checkdisk won't run until the next reboot (because
that partition is inuse and locked while the OS is running).

Maybe selecting "At System Startup" gets around that problem but then
checkdisk would run on every Windows startup.

You should not need to keep running checkdisk all the time ... *if* you
are using NTFS instead of FAT32.
