Chkdsk running at nearly every bootup

    On my Vista HPsp1, HP laptop, chkdsk is running a majority of the times it
    boot ups. It appears to find no problems.

    Is this indicative of something bad about to happen? Or does this indicate
    something else?


    Worried,

    Thank you for the help. I checked the link you sent, and wound up having to
    open 3 more links. So it may take me awhile to wade through it all. I will
    let you know the results, however.

    Problem solved. Long story, short. I had just been letting chkdsk run at
    system startup with no options. Doing something else, it asked if I wanted
    to run chkdsk with all the options. I did. It found and repaired a sector!
    Not only has chkdsk stopped running at boot up, but the 'puter is actually
    running better.


    Thanks for the help, at least I learned something,
    Danno
