Windows 7: Why did chkdsk run?

Why did chkdsk run?

1 Minute Ago I installed Windows 7. I went to windows update and installed all the important updates and one optional update related to the intel chipset in my computer. I rebooted after the updates were installed, successfully according to Windows. What happens when I reboot? Chkdsk runs. Why? The only other things I had installed were Microsoft Secrity Essentials and Malwarebyte's Anti Malware. Something is not right.

Its really anything to be worried about, I've had chkdsk run on me when I never told it to (mainly if I install something like Linux with a Wubi like application).

I agree with the two prior posters. You may just want to go to task scheduler and see if there is any schedule for chkdsk. There are none on my scheduler.

I hope you are right. This is the third time I have tried installing Windows 7. the last time I was constantly getting messages about corrupt files and to run chkdsk /r. I would do this but the problems kept happening. It would even wipe out my settings in my email program. So I decided to do another install and when chkdsk ran when the only thing I had done was update Windows it made me nervous.

Hi and welcome

If you are getting chkdsk on several iinstalls I suspect your HD is going bad. Go to the mfr's site and download their diagnostic tool to be sure

It is a brand new hard drive. I don't have any problems when I run XP on a different partition.

Just to point out, even a new hard drive, can be defective or going bad.

I suggest doing what Ken suggested.

I downloaded the diagnostic tool from Intel and ran a full scan on both partitions and they both came back without errors.
