go to start - run - msconfig - startup

Is chkdsk on this list? If it is, untick it.

that is very odd - it may sound daft but did you enter it correctly?

I just tried this on my machine (vista) and it opened. But this isnt specific to vista, its on xp as well.

I think you have quite a big problem here.

/f is a valid switch for chkdsk - it simply tells chkdsk to fix any errors it finds. When did this start?

its the d drive right thats giving you this problem?

If so, try chkdsk /x D: - this will unmount the disk and then tried to fix the problem.

Actually, check the registry first here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE> SYSTEM> CurrentControlSet> Control> Session Manager>

under BootExecute what do you see?
