How to Disable Auto Scan at Startup

How to DISABLE or STOP Auto Scan CHKDSK in START UP 
[Windows]
Tried of this annoying blue screen checking disk at startup?
Yes, im sure you are! By the way, the one youve seen above is called
CHKDSK (sounds like Check Disk huh? ).

CHKDSK is one of the features that windows created and therefore it is annoying if it is automatically started! On the other hand, it is useful because it can fix by providing consistency checking to your hard disks.

How to stop it?
Theres a message there that you need to press any key to stop. Okay, thats for that session only. How about next boot? Well, you need to disable it at windows start up.


HERES A WAY:
1. Using chkntfs command at the command prompt(start->run->cmd)
/x switch (The /x switch exclude a drive from the default boot time check.)
If you have drive C:, then the command to disable chkdsk from scanning C: drive would be:
chkntfs /x c:
It will modify the BootExecute Data to autocheck autochk /k C: *


If you have two/three drives, C , D and E, you can disable it by using  chkdsk feature with the command chkntfs /x c: d: e:

2. You can manually edit it to your registry editor(regedit)
You can access registry editor (you are admin) by pressing start->cmd->regedit
Now, you can see 5 hives in it:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
HKEY_CURRENT_USER
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
HKEY_USERS
HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG


But you would access only here:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE subtree
  • \SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
  • change bootexecute to autocheck autochk *




As  for me since i got 2 controlSet: controlset001 and controlset002
