    does the frequent automatic running of chkdsk when i boot up indicate that trouble may be brewing with a hdd on my win xp system?

    Not necessarily, but you should still run a hard drive diagnostic from the manufacturer.

    If Chkdsk wants to run on every boot, check the status of a drive:

    fsutil dirty query driveletter:

    Ex. fsutil dirty query C:

    If the drives are marked as "dirty",
    run this command for each dirty drive:

    Chkdsk driveletter: /f /r

    Win7 seems to not to like to run chkdsk after *any* crashes anymore (at least on my 2 boxes). Booting took longer and longer until I ran it manually. Took a good 15 minutes to fix everything and now it's pretty much back to normal.

    To run the hard drive diagnostics, download and burn the Ultimate Boot CD to CD. It has all the HD manufacturer's diag utils, (plus much more). Simply boot your computer from this CD and select the utility you want to run.

    If you aren't sure who made the hard drive in your computer, use Seagate's Seatools as it will work with most any make of drive.

    The following instructions may prove helpful for burning the UBCD .iso file to disc:

    If Chkdsk is frequently running due to corrupted registry,
    You can take a look at the following,
