Hi Friends, im using winxpsp2(autoupdated) with norton2005 all updated. Since past few days i am noticing a strange problem in my PC. Sometimes when i shut down the computer the normal way, it Restarts instead of Shutting down and then after that Scandisk begins to run while booting. I didnt set/schedule Scandisk to run. And normally the results of scandisk are ok....Also this doesnt happen all the time. Its happens sometimes on its own and sometimes the computer just shuts down properly. I couldnt figure out why this was happening. So i used MSCONFIG to look at Startup items. I have noticed that there is an entry which was not there before. Its details are as follows : Startup item: dumprep 0 -k Command: %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k Location: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run Can anyone tell me what it is? and is it because of this entry that scandisk begins to run on its own sometimes?...OR is it that my Hard disk is about to crash?...i hope not!!!... Can I disable this entry or remove it or just keep it as it is? help pls. Thanks.
