    Autocheck program not found skipping autocheck message at bootup

    I keep getting the message "Autocheck program not found skipping autockeck" each time I boot or reboot which is very annoying. Has anyone else seen this message and if so, does anyone know how to get rid of it?

    Go into cmd prompt (as admin) and type:
    Code:
    sfc /scannow

    Re: Autocheck program not found skipping autocheck message at bootup

    I ran chkdsk /r and sfc /scannow but neither of these removed the autocheck message. I looked im msconfig and could not find a reference to autocheck.

    Does anyone know if there is supposed to be an autocheck.exe program in the windows/system32 folder because it doesn't exist in mine? But there is an autochk.exe program in the windows/system32 folder.

    I'm beginning to think I'll just have to put up with this message every time I boot or reboot my system!!!

    Re: Autocheck program not found skipping autocheck message at bootup

    autocheck and chkdsk are basically the same thing, except autocheck is run on bootup. They both look for problems on the disk.

    To disable automatic disk checking at Windows startup through registry, go to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager


    In the right hand pane, double click BootExecute.


    The default value of the key is autocheck autochk *


    * means every drive is checked for consistency. Just add /K:C at the end before *. /K switch will disable autocheck on C: drive at Windows startup. So the final value should look like this:


    autocheck autochk /k:C *

    Thank you. This information worked. Before I made the change you suggested the value in Bootexecute was as follows:

    [IMG]file:///C:/Users/Jim/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot.jpg[/IMG]autocheck "autocheck""autocheck autochk *"""
    autocheck autochk /k:C *
    autocheck smrgdf C:\Users\Jim\Appdata\Roaming\Iolo\

    I deleted the 1st and 3rd lines and rebooted. I no longer get this message. However, I don't know what the lines I deleted do but hopefully they are not important. Thanks again for your help.

    I had same annoying problem.
    It was caused by a corrupted registry.
    Run REGEDIT and then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\ControlSet001\Control\Session Manager. Click on BootExecute. Data should be "autocheck autochk*".
    If you anything else other than "autocheck autochk*", delete other data shown there.
    This should clear out the problem.
    Do the same on all Controlset002, 003 etc. if you have more in the registry.

    Hope this helps.
    It worked on my case anyway.

    I understand you cannot run system. right? In this case boot Win 7 recovery disk

    choose language>>repair computer>>command prompt

    and type

    regedit

    //it open registry but all hives what you can see are only from recovery disk level,not from your system on your hdd!//

    To have able edit registry hive from your hdd you have download proper hive manually

    in your case

    1.Click on HKEY_LOCALE_MACHINE hive
    2. Go to menu from File choose "load hive" then navigate to drive where you have system (mostly it is C:) and go to C:\Windows\System32\config and choose SYSTEM file.
    3.In key name type the name what you want i.e REM_SYSTEM -now you have loaded hive from your hdd

    4.Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\REM_SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Session Manager. Click on BootExecute. Data should be "autocheck autochk*".If you have something different you have to correct it.
    5.Repeat step 4 for all ControlSet00X (X -number) what you have

    Good luck
