ok..i am not an expert on windows 7 but this was what i was trying to say..

i also faced the same problem after trying to install daemon tools and then it asked me to restart...then the problem started...after searching a bit found i had partitioned and formatted the win 7 partition from within xp and simply installed 7 on that partition...then i got this endless chksk at startup each time and corrupt volume messages....also when u do windows update u will get a specific error code...i dont remember it now....but you can google that error code..

xp uses NTFS v5.1 and win 7 uses NTFS v6.0(not sure)..maybe win 7 is not compatible with system partitons formatted with older NTFS versions...so i did a clean install again and this time i formatted the partition from within the win 7 install....and then the problem was solved...

you are running it from desktop, I wrote in my previous post to run it thru recovery environment(Because when you are on the desktop, your C drive cannot be locked to perform the repair).

Yes, Your not entering the full command like I showed you

Enter the command exactly as its shown below in bold type...

fsutil dirty set C: then press enter.

chkdsk C: /F /V then press enter.

Once you have entered the chkdsk command you should see the following:

Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)


Press Y then Enter, from there you will see:

This volume will be checked the next time the system restarts.


That should force chkdsk into running a complete scan of your drive once you reboot, let us know the results

thanks alott to everyone for there input to try and fix the problem

but biggest thanks to dmex

my computer booted up then i thought it was gonna stay the same because the check disk came up and said cancelling again i thought NOOOOOOO
but underneath that it started the check disk and it only took a couple of minutes to complete and my computer booting much faster now to ,about 20 seconds


heres some rep for all you Mo'Fo's

also dmex when you put chkdsk C: /F /V
i thought you just meant put chkdsk then add on the end the hdd label letter ,rather than what you meant put all of it in the command prompt
