I have somehow set my computer to run NTFS Check Disk everytime I start it. How can I turn it off as it take about an hour to complete before I can access anything?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I doubr you actually “set” the checkdisk to run on every start. This can happen because of a corrupted registry. Read this and see if it applies.

    In-order to turn off the check disk feature for NTFS.

    Click start/run, type cmd and click ok. From the prompt, run chkntfs utility. This should stop the check disk on every boot.

    Example:

    chkntfs /x c: This disables chkdsk from running on drive C:

    The term "X" tells windows to NOT check that particular drive on the next reboot.
