I'm running Windows 7 Home Basic on an Asus K55N laptop. I need to run chkdsk with /F option, which is available only after scheduling and rebooting, but it simply doesn't run - windows starts up normally instead.
I've tried scheduling the chkdsk through command menu, through the drive property context menu on explorer and also by manually changing the registry key value.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\BootExecute is set to:
autocheck autochk /p \??\C:
autocheck autochk * lsdelete
I've also tried removing the first line from the value and rebooting. no success at all.
the autochk.exe file does not seem to be corrupted, as it has 760kb, same size as in a friend's machine.
EDIT: well, after running the command sfc /scanfile=c:\windows\system32\autochk.exe, I got a response stating that Windows found corrupted files, but couldn't correct them. What should I do in order to fix it?
