At my age I get paranoid. Can I do this safely?

The registry entries used by Autochk to determine which volumes get checked
at boot time are:
Hkey_local_machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\
BootExecute:REG_MULTI_SZ: autocheck autochk *
NOTE: This is the default setting for Autochk and also the result of using
Chkntfs /d to have all volumes checked at boot time.

If I delete the following line in order to stop chkdsk running every time
will I do any damage?

BootExecute:REG_MULTI_SZ: autocheck autochk *

I tried Kelly's line 82 disable reg fix and on reboot SFC started and could
not find the required files so I had to use System Restore in Safe Mode to
get back but still had the chkdsk running of course.

If this is too much of a pain then please ignore.

TIA

Open regedit and navigate to >>>
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
Value Name: BootExecute
Double click: BootExecute in the right hand pane
Set the Value Data to: None, nada, zip, nothing, Blank, white space, air
Click: OK

Key should look like:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
Value Name: BootExecute
Value Type: REG_MULTI_SZ
Value Data: Wil Be Blank
===

Tip...
Instead of typing reg keys by hand.
In regedit | Right click the key in the left hand pane |
Copy Key Name | Paste into Notepad

Thank you Wesley, your input is very helpful. All I need now is the courage
to do it.

I have had rather too many disasters requiring re-installs and I really
don't want to do any more.

No doubt System Restore will recover the status quo if there is a problem.

I'll remember your edit tip for future use but the content of this message
was lifted from a page found by a Google search.

Thanks Wesley

Big help and I'm OK to get it sorted. It's what I needed to boost my
confidence.

Uuse CHKNTFS (yes even for FAT32)

CHKNTFS /d - to reset default
CHKNTFS /x C: E: F: - exclude your disk drives C E F
CHKNTFS /c C: - adds the C: drive to autochk (optional)

enter first 2 commands to turn off
enter 3rd to turn on for C: only

Rinse, repeat as needed
