Double click on BootExecute and change the Value Data to autocheck autochk *

Apply the change and reboot. If the chkdsk operation runs, let it....then reboot again and see if it tries to run yet again. If it does, follow my previous instructions to reset the dirty bit.

That's the correct prompt for an XP command session.

I did everything on post 14 and on reboot it said that check disk was cancelled
and that windows has finished checking the disk.
anf then it went right into log in without going thru the 5 steps.

Try this one last time - chkdsk c: /f /x, where c: is the drive.

I ran the chkdsk c: /f /x then rebooted. It said again, check disk is cancelled and that windows is finished checking the disk.

I checked the bootexecute again and it read on the right, autocheck autochk /k:C *

Do you have any kind of registry monitor installed? Spyware Doctor? Tea Timer (comes with Spybot S&D)? Anything that might be denying changes to the registry?

I do have spybot S and D...and have used it ...When i installed it would teatimer have been automatically installed too? If i uninstall Search destroy will tea-timer be uninstalled too?

Besides Spybot s and d how can i check what items are denying changes with the registry?

I have cyberhawk as well but i ran check dsk after uninstalling it and i have suspended its action as well and it still was unlockable to chkdsk and diskchk cancelled on reboot.
