Thread: scedule check disk not responding

    Default scedule check disk not responding

    I lost my wireless and my security program somehow. Attempted to use system
    restore and received a message that there us a "system curruption on ..C" and
    to check disk for errors. When attempted a message stated WIndows cannot
    check disk when running, do I want to check when starting computer. I
    clicked "Schedule disk check" and nothing happens. After shutting down and
    restarting the problem remains the same.

    How do I proceed to remedy this and get my computer back and restore my
    wireless and lost security program?

    Go to Orb, ALL PROGRAMS, ACCESSORIES and then right click on COMMAND
    PROMPT. Select run as administrator. Say OK to the UAC Prompt.

    At the cursor spot type exactly (note space after the K)

    CHKDSK /R/F

    Say Yes (Y) to run at next start up

    Close that box down and do a reboot

    It will fix any problems.

    You may then need to go back to a restore point from just before the
    problem started.

    Report back, as you may have corrupted some system files and need to do
    a repair as well

    Hi Cottonwoodian,

    See if you can get chkdsk to run with one of these methods.

    Hope this helps,

    Pardon my ignorance as I do not know what is a UAC prompt. However I did the
    command and it stated that the computer would check disk at the next startup.
    I don't know if it did as after shutting down and starting up the situation
    appears unresolved. When I attempted system restore the message appeared
    again stating there is a file system corruption.

    What is the next step to repair the computer?

    UAC = User Account Control. This is the Popup you get when you go to
    run many programs or system programs. It's the one you click YES to.
    Don't tell me you have UAC turned off??

    Note Brink has given you a full tutorial on CHKDSK as well, so run
    through that.

    You may have corrupt system restore points. How many have you tried
    going backwards in time?

    No I don't have UAC turned off. I am so used to it I forgot I had clicked
    it. I have tried 10 restore points from the last two weeks with the same
    result. I have also tried all of the suggestions from Brink's tutorial
    except the installation DVD because the one that came with the machine states
    it will delete all files on the machine!

    I do not know where to go from here.

    Wish I was there to help! I think you need to try some repair work and
    if that fails, back up your data and reformat and start again. While
    that may sound draconian, it is only a days work to get all your
    programs back and running.

    Will your oldest restore point work?

    I assume you have scanned for Viruses?

    when the apparent corruption occurred I lost my wireless internet ability and
    my Norton Security Center. I used Windows defender to scan and it came up
    with no problems also with no history. No restore points work. I bought the
    machine just over a month ago. What are repair options prior to having
    someone backup the drive and reinstall the os?

    Try putting your replies at the BOTTOM of the thread, so they come under
    mine! That is the polite way in User Groups and makes it easier for all
    to read logically.

    Go here and follow the instructions (with pictures) to do a Repair.
    http://vistaultimate.windowsreinstal...airstartup.htm

    If that doesn't work, and as your machine is only a month old, I suggest
    you take it back to the place you bought it from, it is still under
    warranty. BUT back your data up, as most will just reformat and install
    as the quick option
    I am suspicious you got hit by a Virus/Worm/Trojan, as the first thing
    they do is block Norton's! Go to one of the Online AV Groups and do an
    Online Scan.

    Here is one

    There are others, use GOOGLE.
