Can't find autochk.exe on startup


A

Alberto

I am running Win XP Sp2 and I am getting a message that autochk.exe cannot be
found so startup is skipping autocheck. I have used Windows Explorer and the
Command line to find that it exists. I have checked my Registry and there
isn't a key named "Bootexecute" that is mentioned in several documents and
discussions. Should I create the key and enter "Autocheck autochk *" ?

Yes, you could do this. You should, of course, ask yourself how this
key could have disappeared. You might also use System Restore if
this is a recent issue.

My System Restore was not able to use any of the dates I was choosing. I had
to turn it off and turn it back on to start over.
I am not experienced enough to know why BootExecute disappeared; I may have
un-checked a box in the Startup section of the System Restore but I am not
sure. I know I can create the key - Should I?

Thanks
