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?
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!!!
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.
I understand you cannot run system. right? In this case boot Win 7 recovery disk
choose language>>repair computer>>command prompt
//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
