window 7 checking c now almost daily?

I have a Toshiba laptop A500 series running Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit. the computer was purchased in May. I am using MSE and Panda as my anti Virus--and Malwarebytes also. I scanned with all of them yesterday and they say my computer is free form anything malicious. However 2 times this week including this morning at startup the computer is checking C. I am worried that something is wrong.

Couple of thoughts. First, you shouldn't run two antivirus tools at the same time. They can cause conflicts on your machine. Second, it sounds like you might be experiencing a dirty NTFS volume or what Microsoft calls a dirty bit. This previous Forum thread might help:

Is it running chdsk at startup? If so, run the maker's full HD diag/repair CD scan: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.URL

I would also uninstall your AV using Revo uninstaller in Advance mode, then install lean mean free MS Security Essentials in 30 seconds, let it update, then run a Full Scan. it then becomes invisible unless there is a threat.
