Scan Disk

by Danny / February 23, 2004 7:22 AM PST

For some reason my pc started to run scan disk after
a normal shut down.Every time i start the computer
after a normal shutdown it runs,and it's not the
short scan it's the complete scan.The first time
it did it i let it run all the way thru but after that
i just cancel.I have disabled it but i would like to
fix the problem. Any ideas? Im running a 750 athlon
with win/me. Thanks

While rarely caused by hardware, here's the most common Knowledge Base article for Windows 98 that does that -> http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;152404 Read the link to article "273017 ScanDisk Runs Even Though Windows Shut Down Correctly" if need be.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
