    Re: CHKDSK is not responding

    I have just done the formatting and performed the clean installation of Windows XP Professional, I have completed the downloading of entire critical Windows updates, scanned for any viruses and the spyware, but I did not found anything . My issue is that whenever I issue the command as chkdsk /f from the command line or by alternate-clicking on the C: drive, tools, error-checking, Windows will require if I need to specify the disk checking tool at another restart. I always choose yes and whenever I reboot, chkdsk never performs . I am just absolutely clueless.

    There is some other method through which you can get the same result but you have to run this in different way . Just go for trying this from the recovery console.. you will require to booting of your operating system disk to perform the same .

    I am running with a sneaky feeling which systemworks is where your issue is... that program has caused me some disk associated issues within the past when it didn't started up properly.

    Re: CHKDSK is not responding

    So many thanks for prompt reply here. I am not sure that the Norton contains such type of bug, I am using this for a long time , without any issues . This is the initially time that I am suffering with such type of issues .By the way, I have done the installation of only the antivirus and windoctor . I think , the next step is to perform the uninstallation and find out if the chkdsk executes at booting. If not, I will perform the complete reformatting procedure and perform the installation without systemworks.
