Windows 7: Check Disc

Check Disc

Starting approx 3 wks ago each time I booted my PC I got "check disc" prompt from Windows. I ran it a few times and then would skip (only took 4-5 mins) I then Ran HP Hardware Diagnostic Tools Advanced a few times. Every thing OK. Ran defrag on hard drive. Re-booted and no "ck disc". Next re-boot, "ck disc" back. Can't defrag or restore due to "file system corruption" on hard drive. HP phone support was a waste of two hours. Had two "critical events" about the time this started. Power loss shutdown and an IE8 problem. IExplore,exe,version 8.0.7600.16385. I would like to find a solution other than sys restore.

I don't think that repair applies here. I rebooted and the "check disc' is for "C" drive. In the past I've done both short and long checks that include the "free clusters". During one of the many diagnostic checks done I was shown the corrupt files. Camera battery dead, so no pic. Corrupt files appeared to be in my photo albums. I don't recall what I was doing when I had power outage shutdown. Is there a repair for Windows Live Photo Gallery or do I need to delete all and re-install?

Just located the backup files notepad listing 19 different files that could not be backed up due to being on corrupted "C" drive. Am I correct in assuming that the drive rather than the files is corrupted? If so, would a system recovery be the best solution? My info loss would be very little.

The "drive" IS the files. The files may be corrupt and, therefore, unreadable, or the disk may be defective, e.g., bad sectors, and therefore unreadable. Whatever the reason, not being able to properly read files creates issues.

Have you read the ckdsk log in EV?
Did you try to clear the dirty bit as PoorMan suggested?
Does the backup log specifiy the corrupt files. Obviously, if they are JPEGs of your dog, the SFC will not correct those.

Power on Disc check
How do I stop the 'Check Disc' on startup. It does it every time I switch on and takes an age. It never finds anything wrong so it seems a waste of my time.

Repeated Disc Check
Recently, when I boot up my computer, one out of two times, it will pull up a disc check before "Starting Windows," letting me log in, etc. I was just curious as to why it's so frequent, and if there's a way to stop it.
