Scandisk vs. Norton Disk Doctor
Posted on 1998-12-02
It is a well-kwown fact, that in case of erroneous shut-down and/or emergency restart of Windows (say, by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del or Reboot button), during the re-loading Scandisk is initialized automatically.
Now, if we have Norton Utilities istalled on the machine, in similar cases HDs are scanned by Norton Disk Doctor, that replaces Scandisk in its role of a utility for emergency diagnostics and recovery.
The question is how is it done? Where is the reference to NDD.EXE (instead of Scandisk) entered? Is it in the Registry or somewhere else? And how can it be corrected, because I'd like to remove Norton Disk Doctor and get back my Scandisk for emergency procedures.
Please, give me some brilliant hints.
