[Solved] Windows Runs Check Disk (CHKDSK) Every Startup

I just ran into this issue after most recent Windows Update. After doing some research, I found out that Microsoft again (yeah, i know) botched their update which is causing Windows 7 to run chkdsk every time it boots up. To resolve this issue, just install Windows Update KB2823324

If you do not know how to unistall updates (works for any Windows Updates), follow the steps below:

1. Go to Control Panel > Windows Update

2. At the bottom left column, you will see Installed Updates link, click on it.


3. Search for KB2823324, you can put the term in search bar at the top


4. Click on the update and click Uninstall. You are done!


As usual, if you have any questions or comments, please post it below.

  1. I just ran into this today. I was able to remove the update (I also read it has something to do with Kaspersky AV so we removed their latest update as well) but when I restarted it still ran Check Disk. It was taking a very long time so I had to leave the office. Should the removal of the updae fix the ntfs errors that show up in the Event Viewer?

    • If your hard drive is showing NTFS errors then it might have few bad sectors or nearing its end of life. After removing the Windows Update, it might do check disk one last time after restart as the flag had already been set but will not repeat it after that.
