Disk Check not performing.

Basically when I try to initiate a disk check, you know it tells you it'll do it once you restart your computer right? Well, after numerous times, it never EVER performed a disk check. I ran a /scannnow and I have a log file for someone, I believe its a cbs log or some sort, I'm not sure what its called, I'm kind of in a rush to go out right now so if someone has the time to view it, it would be MUCH APPRECIATED..

According to the log, its failing to repair the autochk.exe

Which, I believe this part of the Disk Check..

Are you trying to run the diskcheck from the Command Window?

I have done that. After a restart, I selected the advance boot selection and highlighted "repair your computer"
It said it was fixing errors and may take up to an hour, luckily it only took like 10 minutes, unfortunately it did NOT solve my problem.
Check disk still wont work..

I was told to get the autochk.exe file from my boot disk, but when I bought this PC it was discounted 20% off cause it was used for testing at "Fry's" and didnt come with a boot disk.
I can get one for $20 off toshibas site, but I dont really want to spend 20$ just to check my disk, there has to be another way around...

I was wondering if anyone has windows 7 and can put an autochk.exe on a zip file? I dont even know if its possible. Maybe you have to have the exact laptop as I do...
I run a Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q860 if that helps...

Thanks

uhh... not to be mean but maybe you should make your own post instead of jacking mines...
It is similar, except my disk check "WONT RUN AT ALL"
by the way your problem isnt really a big deal, at least it runs. ,All you have to do is CANCEL the disk checker. When the disk check starts up every time, just press "ANY KEY" and it will CANCEL the disk check... I mean it says it on your screen right before it starts to verify the files.. problem solved.

It still wont, so id appreciate it if someone helped me on my own post, you should make your own. It's just that my disk check has been broke for a while now, and my scannow says theres problems but it CANT fix the disk checker...

So if anyone can try to give me more solutions id appreciate it.
