    NTSF on booting up computer
    When my computer is booting up, it goes to a blue page that says Disk Check C and if I hit any key within 10 seconds it will skip this. One time it went through 5 folders for disk check on C program and I had to let it finish. How do I get rid of this when I turn on my laptop? I don't know what NTSF is.
    Thank you for any help

    You don't want to get rid of this disk check as it's a good idea to just let it do it's thing each time you boot up. I know it's annoying but they put it there for a reason. Helps to keep you apprised of any new surprises on your laptop. NTSF is a fancy computer word for internal file system. This is the kind of system you have.

    I know I am new, but I wanted to poke around here for a little bit...

    NTFS stands for New Technology File System. It is the file system that works best with windows 2000 NT and above. (really any NT operating system)

    Anyway, most of the time you have to ask the computer to run the check disk utility that you are seeing. Or if you don't ask to run check disk, it will automatically run after Windows senses a problem... like an improper shut down. If this is running every time you start the computer something is wrong. Are you shutting down the computer the correct way? And not just holding the power button in? Anything else strange you are noticing?

    Thank you for your input. I did download spybot from the internet and then I started having the problem. I just became tired enough of watching for this to show, I put in a new system restore point and deleted spybot. This is the first time I have used my laptop since I deleted spybot and changed dates, and I had no problem getting on line and no blue screen telling me it would scan C disk if I did not hit any key before the counter went to 0.
    Thank you for your input, and I accept anything else you or anyone has to explain to me about this odd behavior I encountered.
