    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.

    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 *.
