Hi, someone I know has a problem with their computer, everytime they start it up, scandisk checks their disk, which is very annoying. Is there any way of stopping this from happening?

Thanks,
Sparq

Scandisk usually only runs on startup if there are other issues with the computer. Have any other problems/errors been noted lately?
