Disabling Scandisk Check

When Windows is not shut down correctly, it will perform an AutoCheck using CHKDSK on the next restart.

AutoCheck is executed after a short time delay. AutoCheck can be disabled or delayed by tweaking a few Registry settings.
1) Run ‘Regedit’ from ‘Start Menu -> Run’
2) Go to ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE|SYSTEM|CurrentControlSet|Control|SessionManager’.
3) Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value, called “AutoChkTimeOut” and set it according to the value data below.
4) Value Name: AutoChkTimeOut.
5) Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value).
6) Value Data: Time in Seconds or 0 to disable(default = 10).
7) Exit your registry, you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the change to take effect.
