check disc

On windows XP chk disk comes up when the computer is turned on. This occurs randomly or I have not figured the pattern out yet. It takes 45 minutes to run. It never seems to accomplish anything. What is it and how can I control it? your's truly, wjmx

Possible reasons:
After you upgrade to Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP Professional, the Chkdsk utility program runs each time that you start your computer.
This issue can occur if the System registry hive or the Software registry hive is damaged, or if both of the following conditions are true:
You use a Hewlett Packard (HP) ScanJet 5100c scanner with the HP driver.
You have not updated the scanner driver to the Windows XP version that is available from Hewlett Packard.

You can try this:Configure your computer to start from the CD-ROM drive. For more information about how to do this, refer to your computer's documentation or contact your computer manufacturer. Then insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.
When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.
Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.
Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.
In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.
Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.
Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

Or this:Use the System File Checker tool to scan all of the protected files on your computer:
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type sfc /scannow, and then click OK.

It could also be the way it gets shut down. As long as you use the start button/turn off the computer option, it should be fine
