    is there a way out if scandisk as result of improper shutdown or reset is bypassed once by hitting any key , next time it disappers like win98 ?

    Please help with a suggestion.

    It doesn't matter at all when you are using Win XP?
    Are your partitions on NTFS?

    Hey uer question is quite confusing... u want the scan disk to run in the next boot or not???

    If yes, the type scandisk/f from the command prompt in uer windows drive...

    and if u dont want it to run the next time... u shud'nt have a problem... cause the scandisk in windows XP is made to run for the NEXT boot bole to due to improper shutdown at lower levels of damage... he he he

    Try this >>

    Windows XP

    Start > Run > chkntfs /x <drive> [drive] [drive]
    For example, if you want to disable Chkdsk from running on drive C: chkntfs /x c:

    Chkntfs works by modifying the BootExcecute value in the Registry.
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\
    CONTROL\Session Manager
    The default value is BootExecute:REG_MULTI_SZ:autocheck autochk *

    Chkdsk /f /r is unaffected by chkntfs and can be run to check volumes manually on the next system reboot.

    To restore the automatic execution of Chkdsk, you can download and run this registry file (168 bytes).

    Windows 98/ME
    Start > Run > Msconfig > Advanced > Disable Scandisk after bad shutdown
    Win98: If you prefer to play with the Msdos.sys file:


    Add AutoScan=0 to the [Options] section.
    WinME: If you prefer to play with the Registry:
    Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem]
    Value Name: DisableScandiskOnBoot
    Data Type: REG_BINARY
    Value Data: 01
