Re: Cannot unschedule chkdsk

To unschedule chkdsk follow this step : Go to the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager Look for the REG_MULTI_SZ value with the following name: BootExecute. The command "autocheck autochk /p \??\C:" is what we want to change. Change replace the "/p \??\C:" with an asterisk (*). If you don't want any checks to be performed, delete all autocheck entries. Press OK to dismiss the edit dialog.Close Registry Editor.

Re: Cannot unschedule chkdsk

To unschedule checkdsk open up RegEdit, go to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Session Manager, and look for the REG_MULTI_SZ named BootExecute. Edit that key and remove all the lines except autocheck autochk *.
