Look at your schedualed tasks. That's settings - controle panel - scheduled tasks. And see if it has been schedualed to run on start up.

Or just remove this command from the register, remember to back your registry up before you do this:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\BootExecute:

'autocheck autochk *'

Your HD might be damaged or might think its damaged.

If all else fails do a low level format aka Zero Fill.

If it still happens your disk my infact be damaged

try to download utilities and diagnostic floppy image on the site of your harddrive manufacturer ... though, i warn you : two days ago i've had one of our harddisk serviced. Running several tests proved nothing, but after a week it started it all again. In case, run several continuous test and keep your system online for some time.

I agree with drew on this one, get yourself a low level format, then try to reinstall. If it still happens, you got yourself a dud HDD from what I can tell.
