Windows 7: Scheduled Check Disk not working

09 Feb 2010   #1

Windows 7 64-bit
Scheduled Check Disk not working

For some reason when it counts down it stops at 1 and freezes; ironically what prompted me to try a scheduled check disk is the fact that it had found bad sectors upon booting up one day.

Check Disk has run successfully on my other harddrives, but I keep running into the latter problem every time I boot up and try it on the main drive where the OS is installed.

Any help would be appreciated.
