Trying to disable chkdsk completely.
I was unsure whether this should go here, or in crashing/debugging.
Now before I start, I'm fairly sure the reason chkdsk even comes up is when I play around on my Ubuntu partition, although if so, that's very unfortunate.
Why I don't want chkdsk:
Last time I had a chkdsk come up I let it simply do its thing, however it took nearly 10 minutes. When my computer finally started up I was missing about 75% of my data. ALL of my music, pictures, videos, downloads, documents, saved games (really anything inside the users folder). As you can imagine this was very frusterating, I had literally lost all of my personal information..
It took me an entire week to try and recover the data, back it up, and the worst part, sorting through it all, everything was scattered in randomly numbered folders. I still have lots I haven't gone through, and some of the items I did recover had already managed to get corrupted, even after not downloading/saving any data to that drive.
I firmly believe there was nothing wrong with my disk, except Ubuntu making windows THINK there was something wrong.
I just want to be able to disable chkdsk completely. When I start my computer chkdsk comes up, and because I keep skipping it, it's going to ask again and again each time.
I've already tried option 1 and 2 from here, but it still comes up:
Check Disk - Reset
but this guide seems to call it "reseting" chkdsk, so doesn't that only mean it will immediately detect and want to run it again?
EDIT: actually within 20 minutes after making this post I had walked away, when I came back my computer had managed to restart and chkdsk was at it again! it was on the 1 of 3 stage at 80% and it just shut the computer off. Turns out a live update or something made my computer restart. It doesn't appear anything is gone, but since I cut it off, it asked to do it again when I started it back up. I really need this to go away before I lose everything again.
If chkdsk is truly critical to have, maybe it's best that I back up my drive, reformat it, then copy all the information back over?

I would suggest trying option 3 on that tutorial and seeing how that works. Have you considered adding an extra hard drive to your system to run Ubuntu on? (assuming you're on a desktop) Or, running it virtually?
Also, check your event logs under Windows, particularly under System (in Start Search, type "eventvwr" and hit enter). Look for any red X's or yellow !'s. Copy and paste (youll need to use ctrl+c) any clues back here. Good luck!

I found about 20 errors with apple's Bonjour Service:
Error 6/21/2012 2:44:01 PM Bonjour Service 100 None
and a couple other repetitive results:
Error 6/25/2012 11:26:58 AM Service Control Manager 7000 None
Error 6/25/2012 11:26:57 AM WLAN-AutoConfig 10000 None
Then I found about 30-50 of these in a row:
Warning 6/19/2012 4:29:24 PM Disk 51 None
My current setup right now is a desktop that consists of a Seagate Momentus XT 750GB Hybrid drive as drive C, containing my Windows and Ubuntu Partition. Within the Windows partition I have everything except my user's folder. My users folder is on a 1.5TB Samsung drive, drive F.
I have read/wrote on drive F from my Ubuntu partition, and that is the drive chkdsk keeps wanting to scan.
Perhaps this is a question for the Ubuntuforum, but do you know if reading and writing files from Ubuntu onto a drive that Windows regularly looks at will make it think it needs a chkdsk? Something like this should yield more results though, when I search for it, so if I were to guess, I don't think Ubuntu can easily corrupt windows like that.

You might get a quicker response on the Ubuntu forums on this issue, as I'm sure there are folks here that could assist more than myself that have more knowledge on Linux partitions. I can't see that writing to the F drive from Ubuntu would trigger a disk check in Windows.
When you say you have your user folders on drive F, do you mean just your documents, or your whole Windows profile and AppData and all that?
EDIT: I would also recommend disabling the Bonjour service altogether. Although this is most likely unrelated to your issue, Bonjour has security risks--it is included with iTunes (a virus in my opinion!)
On the "Warning 6/19/2012 4:29:24 PM Disk 51 None" errors, can you expand them to see their detail?
