Re: Chkdsk

I tore my hair out over this problem today, and finally found a solution
that worked for me.

This time when I scheduled the chkdsk (I used the command prompt but I
don't think that would have mattered), I then ran msconfig from an
elevated prompt, selected "boot" and selected safe mode.

Then I clicked OK and rebooted. Chkdsk worked correctly in safe mode.
