I have been having an issue with my Windows 7 home premium machine at home with the disk scans taking forever to complete at boot up for no apparent reason. In my search for answers I came across these issues via http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-performance/windows-7-support-and-chkdsk-issues/a8ab415b-4559-45c6-99a4-a54e27e5a836 then thought rather than waste time searching for the a solution to the underlying cause of the problem (I usually re-image my machines every 6-12 months anyway) I’ll just work around it.
I then found Eagle081183’s blog post ‘how to disable the CHKDSK…on startup for Windows 7’ and simply disabled it.
Good thinking 99! Thanks for the idea Eagle081183.
