How are you restarting?

If you're hitting the reset button, its not an official shutdown so it'll want to check the disk.

seattle2005er,
Try these steps:
(Note: I have used a variable x, which is the drive letter(s) for which chkdsk performs scan on boot)

1) Open cmd. (Start -> Run. Type: cmd .Press <enter>)
2) Type fsutil dirty query x: .Press Enter
3) If it says "Volume X: is dirty", run a manual chkdsk x: /fscan at that instant.

Reboot after u have followed the above steps for all x:
