Want to cancel scheduled chkdsk /r in Win XP Pro SP1

At the recommendation of another GTG moderator (on a different problem), I scheduled a chkdsk /r but I am running Win XP Pro SP1 (patched up to June 15,2006)...during reboot I get message "cannot open volume for direct access" and it aborts the chkdsk run. It now tries to do this scan every time I reboot.

In checking MS site, I find this is a known problem that was corrected in SP2 but I don't want to upgrade to SP2 just yet.

How do I cancel the CHKDSK in Win XP Pro? (I think I need to go into the Registry)...

Thanks in advance...

My apologies...I didn't explain this well...I used the Command prompt DOS command "chkdsk /r" rather than ticking any boxes in Win XP...thanks for the response though!

I still need help on canceling the scheduled chkdsk function...I was able to find that in NT, I could edit the registry (BootExecute) and delete the "chkdsk" command...but I don't know where it is in Win XP SP1...it isn't in the same place as NT...
