problems with XP Pro, help!

  1. I have Win XP Pro, service pack 2 installed on my machine.

    in the past few days what has happened everytime i boot my machine it is running a disk check before windows loads. I am unable to do a defrag on that drive as it says that a diskcheck has been scheduled, when i have infact not scheduled anything.

    Is there anyway that I can cancel the diskcheck from running every time when starting windows, or why would it be doing this?

    i would really appreciate any suggestions to help sort out this annoying problem.
