window 7 checking c now almost daily?

I have a Toshiba laptop A500 series running Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit. the computer was purchased in May. I am using MSE and Panda as my anti Virus--and Malwarebytes also. I scanned with all of them yesterday and they say my computer is free form anything malicious. However 2 times this week including this morning at startup the computer is checking C.

Is it running chdsk at startup? If so, run the maker's full HD diag/repair CD scan: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.URL

I would also uninstall your AV using Revo uninstaller in Advance mode, then install lean mean free MS Security Essentials in 30 seconds, let it update, then run a Full Scan. it then becomes invisible unless there is a threat.
