Hello. My Windows 7 Check Disk program isn't working at all. I schedule the disk check, but it doesnt occur when I restart. Any reason why?

Run sfc /scannow from elevated CMD: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Then try running chkdsk /r
Disk Check

If either of these fail, boot the Win7 DVD or Repair CD, open a Command Line to try them.
