    Good morning!

    This is not a very good idea. If your running 9x: juste click on exit
    when scandisk start. For XP: you just hit any key to stop.
    Ihope it will help.
    Have a nice day.

    Rename chkdsk.exe so the system can't find it.

    Found in the system32 dir

    Either press "Enter" when scandisk starts or to disable permanently Start |
    Run | type "msconfig" (without quotes) | Enter | Advanced | check Disable
