What happens when you click on it above? Do you have flash stick or external plugged in?

It may be a virtual drive which is AVG bloatware. I would not run AVG at all.

If I click on it, I get en error message:
Quote:
J:\ is not accessible.
Access is denied.
I do not have flash stick or external plugged in.
The J: is also shown in Disk Management without file system though.
I am waiting for AVG to finish (it takes forever).

That's why I run AVG:

After AVG has finished, I clicked on J: in Windows Explorer and it shown the empty folder:
This folder is empty.
See also Disk Management capture.
Now, I know that it is a new 1 GB disk (HDD).

Greg, why did you said: "I would not run AVG at all." ? Is there a problem with AVG PC TuneUp 2015 ?

Windows 7 doesn't need any tweaking suites to maintain it. They only get in the way and cause problems. I would uninstall AVG completely and avoid those kinds of programs.

J appears to be a 1tb data drive which is already formatted Logical. Go ahead and run a full Disk Check
on it.

Everything that works best for installing and maintaining Win7 is here. You will get and keep a perfect install to the exact extent you stick with only the tools and methods in Clean Reinstall Windows 7 just like 1.5 million others have without a single complaint.

Every time I reboot or restart my PC, during the boot process the check disk is activated and starts checking the drive C:
How I can stop this?
