When you restart, does chkdsk still run?

It still checked D: and the DVD ROM, but it looked like it missed the C drive.

Should I run chkntfs D: /x ? and see if this stops it from checking the D drive as well?  I can always disconnect the DVD rom.

Unfortunately, it is still checking the disks - both C and D.  I tried again last night, this time running both of the chkdsk on C and D and then shutting down - when I restarted today, it is checking both disks again.  The DVD rom  has been unplugged for the last few days.

It's a worry that chkdsk has returned again. 

 

Working on the W7 Drive.

Click start > click run, copy/paste into the box taskschd.msc > click OK.

Is chkdsk scheduled to run?

 

We will need to see System Logs to see if errors have been logged. 

To access the System log select Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Event Viewer, from the list in the left side of the window expand Windows Logs and select System. Place the cursor on System, select Action from the Menu and Save All Events as (the default evtx file type) and give the file a name. save to the Desktop, Do the same for the Applications log.

​Attach both files in your reply.

It crashed for some reason.  Here are the two errors and now I cannot get Scheduler Manager to close properly, even through Task Manager.

This might be an anomaly though, I will have to reboot and try again.

If it happens again, click the radio button to send to Microsoft then click OK.

Yep did it again and I did what you said. It crashes everytime.

I have never scheduled an event, so I am not sure why it wants to do that.

Lets see if System Logs help. 

To access the System log select Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Event Viewer, from the list in the left side of the window expand Windows Logs and select System.

They are big files and it won't permit me to upload these type of files.

Not dealt with that problem before, so try this on the forst log, 

 

1. Open the Application log,
2. Select all of them, right-click on one, and click on Send To> New Compressed (zipped) Folder.
3. Upload the zip folder using the Attach button, bottom left of the dialogue input box

I have uninstalled the Freemake video converter.  I found the original files - installed it again and uninstalled it using Revo

Cannot find any CD or DVD player in the device manager (see attached).  Not sure how to find the CD rom to disable it.

I uninstalled Malwarebytes using using Revo, and didn't bother reinstalling it for now.

 

The system never crashes (knock on wood)

I do not get any warnings.  The only issue is the check disk when booting.
