Turning off ScanDisk

Every time my PC is turned on for more than 1hr, ScanDisk loads automatically. I want to trun this feature off and run ScanDisk only when I think it's necessary. Win95 Help says that I have to go to StartUp folder, find ScanDisk's icon and then do something. The problem is that there is no ScanDisk icon in that folder, or in any other folder I looked in. Is there a workaround?

If you have MS-Plus! installed and System Agent running, it may be scheduling Scan disk to run everyday! So check that out too.

this is hardcoded into io.sys, only way to disable it is by hexediting that file.. if you are willing to do that let me know :)

Do you have System Agent. What version of 95 do you have. I've never heard of it being Hardcoded in IO.sys.
Will you tell me the vitals your system, ie; cpu make and model, Will you tell me the vitals your
system, ie; cpu make and model, How much ram , pci, type of mouse, video adapter, network, what
kind of Network Adapter, significant software and anything you can think of. There are many
variables and we could spend weeks trying to solve something while I don't know what we're
working with. :)

Oooh, sh*t, i read it as "being turned OFF for over an hour" so i automatically thought it was the "Windows didnt shut down properly" that was causing it *sorry* :)
