CHKDSK prompt pops up every time I boot.
So in my last post, I removed a virus from another HDD. Ever since then, I get a strange CHKDSK screen (the Windows Log-on has not loaded yet) The weird thing is, It checks my ORIGINAL drive, not the new one. So at first, I just sit through it and it finds nothing. "Ok," I thought, "This might be a security thing for just in case the virus did transfer." (It did NOT!!!) After a few times on just sitting through it and not getting anything, I was starting to get annoyed. (More than I did when I was having the PC boot in 640x480) Does anyone know what to do??

Hmmm, try this then:
Click on Start and type cmd. Right click on cmd.exe at top of area and select Run as Administrator. In the Command Prompt window, type fsutil dirty query Z: where Z: is the drive you're interested in. This queries the drive, and more than likely it will tell you that it is dirty.
Next, type chkntfs /x Z:. The Z tells Windows to NOT check that particular drive on the next reboot. Now manually reboot your computer, it should not do a chkdsk and should take you directly to normal Windows login.
Once Windows has fully loaded, bring up another Command Prompt and enter chkdsk c: /r. Reply Y when asked if you want this to happen on the next boot. This should take you through 5 stages of the chkdsk scan and will unset that dirty bit. This can take an hour or more depending on the size of your hard drive, be patient and let it complete.
Once booted back to Windows, open another Command Prompt and query the dirty bit again by entering fsutil dirty query c: and Windows will confirm that the dirty bit is not set on that drive.
