chkdsk problem

I'm trying to run Diskkeeper on my system to keep things all straight and all and it keeps telling me that chkdsk is set to run on the next boot etc.  I think it may be doing that each time in the background or whatever.  Is there a way for me to stop this? I just don't know where to stop it.

Thanks for any help.

To stop check disk from running at boot up

start->run
regedit

expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
Edit and Change the BootExecute entry
to read only
autocheck autochk *

delete any other occurence of autocheck in the BooteExcecute value

if it is an NTFS volume:
goto cmd
type
Chkntfs /D
and then run diskeeper
that will solve it. I have the same problem, this just reverts chkdsk to its default behavior (aka resets it)
