Yeah, I would try the hotfix to see if it may help. If not, then you may need to manually extract the file from your installation DVD to use to replace the one in your installation.

my Toshiba laptop came pre-installed with Win 7, I will try the hotfix but looking on the forum it appears to be a fairly common problem.
Fortunately everything is running fine at the moment despite the message.

I appreciate your help.

Hopefully the hotfix will work for you.

You can also use STEP FOUR in the tutorial below as a guide as well to help show you how to replace this file. It's for Vista, but you would just subsititute your extracted Windows 7 file instead of the Vista one in the tutorial.

after reading this about the hotfix, I think I should wait for the next service pack, do you agree ?

Well, it's up to you, but if you already have the SP1 installed for Windows 7, then it's going to be about a year before you see SP2. You might as well give the hotfix a try if it's the same for the issue you having.

Well I am not absolutely certain this hotfix does address the problem I am having. Unlike some others, I have no problem using CHKDSK, and all my programs are working fine. I do not know how important the autochk.exe file is, because although corrupt, it has not produced any problems so far. I discovered I had a corrupt file after doing my monthly sfc/scan, and with your help, which was an education in itself, found it was the autocheck.exe file.

PS I can run CHKDSK but not CHKDSK/F

So far so good.

That should be chkdsk /f instead with a space inbetween.
