Hi all,

When starting up my computer enters a black screen with a message. One of your disks needs checked for consistency...type of disk NTFS

However it can't seem to be skipped at times, it would just freeze at 1 second.
Also, sometimes it would skip only after reaching 1 second, and then it would bring me to windows. On every startup of windows, this screen appears.

By googling some informations online, I tried the Fsutil dirty query in CMD and it indicated that the C: is NOT dirty.
I have also recently installed Tuneup Utilities (http://www.tune-up.c...neup-utilities/)
So I wondered if this product could have messed up the registry as I ran it to clean up the registries as suggested by the product.

Can someone kindly provide me some solutions to this problem? I'm running on Windows 7 64-bit by the way. Thanks in advance!
