If its asking that the disk has its dirty bit set you need to run chkdsk to check the drive

Windows integrity scan did not find any violations.

How do I stop the system from asked me if I want to run Recovery each time I boot?

Each time I boot a screen appears before I log in. I do not know why this screen appears. It refers to Memory Diagnostics, I have run Memory Diagnostics both Quick Check and Advanced, no errors found.
I would like to prevent the screen from appearing. What do I have to do to prevent it?

On the screen it says:

Choose an operating system to start, or chose Tab to start tools.
(Use the arrow keys to highlight your choice, then press ENTER)

Windows 7
Recovery

To specify an advanced option for this choice, press F8
Seconds until the highlighted choice will be started automatically n

It may be that if you boot to Safe Mode, you won't see that message. Then reboot into Normal Mode. Sometimes if Windows can successfully boot once, it will fix itself.

Can you tell us what happens before this issue started?
Did you modify any MSconfig settings?

The screen appears when I boot in Safe Mode.

The only change I made was I started to use a portable printer that has a Direct Mode. I don't think this is the cause of the boot screen problem, but it is a recent change. The printer has a Direct Mode. When in DM I can wirelessly connect the printer to either my notebbook or cell phone. The printer
broadcasts a WiFi signal and I can go to Network and Settings and select it.
