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.

it may be in administrative tools as well if you have access to that, may be called MS System Configuration Utility.

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?
