Windows 7: Random Wininit CHKDSK at startup, after other issues

Random Wininit CHKDSK at startup, after other issues

This may or may not be a problem, just my paranoia: I just restarted my PC, and during startup I saw a CHKDSK check appear. I don't know why, since I didn't initiate it, but I let it run and finish.

The reason why it concerns me is not too long ago I was stupid and accidently unleashed a trojan on my PC. Luckily my antivir caught it, and for all I can tell I've wiped it out. However, I did run at least one utility program that wiped a lot of temp files, and somehow my Firefox profile ended up completely erased. (I don't know if it was that particular utility that was the culprit, but given the timing I assume it was.) That may be irrelevant, but the point is some damage was done to my PC, and I've been worried that more has happened that I still don't know about.

Here are the results from eventvwr regarding the CHKDSK:

Checking file system on C:
The type of the file system is NTFS.
Volume label is OS.

One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You
may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended
that you continue.
Windows will now check the disk.

I don't know enough to interpret what this might mean, like the unused index entries. Does any of this look suspicious to you guys? Is it something I should investigate further?
