Windows 7: autochk program not found - skipping AUTOCHECK

Windows 7 x64 Unlimate

Recently I delete my ubuntu and try to boot my windows 7, and this error show up. I've try the startup repair by using the windows 7 CD, and I am sure autochk.exe is in my system32 folder. Any ideas of this?

Hmm....I've try to fix the MBR, perform a chkdsk check in cmd but still get this error show up.

Run the Startup Repair up to 3 times. That's what has been posted here and seems to work. Not sure why but I won't argue with success.

Maybe gregrocker or Brink or one of the other folks is around and can add some info on why this works.

Thanks for your reply, Ztruker.
I've run the Startup Repair two times and I deceided to do a clean install again, so I am unable to test it "3 times", probably hire mythbusters to figure it out.
