chkdsk runs every time I reboot my computer

I have fixed this problem two different ways, by running a chkdsk /r from the Recovery Console, and by doing a system restore back to before the problem started.
Let me know if you need help with either of these.

If you don't have a CD, run c:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons from the Start > Run dialog box, and if that doesn't work, try c:\WINDOWS\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons. Follow the prompts to install the Recovery Console. Now, the next time you reboot, the Windows Recovery Console will be an option for booting into. Follow the above instructions to get into the actual prompt.
Once you get to C:\WINDOWS>_, just type in chkdsk /r and press Enter. This will run the chkdsk and clear the dirty bit.
EDIT: ((the instructions for installing from the hard drive will only work if you have the i386 folder present on your hard drive.))
