    Stuck on CHKDSK? How to Use & Fix It the Right Way

    Exactly how long does it take Windows to load up? That question is almost as futile as, “How many licks to the center of a Tootsie Pop?” It just seems to take forever. There are several things you can do to make Windows start faster, but maybe part of the problem is that your Windows computer is performing the CHKDSK function on every startup.

    Have you seen that roll up on your screen while you’re waiting? Does it happen to you a lot? Ever wonder what it is, what it does, and if Windows really needs to do that? Read on, my friend, and we’ll answer those questions together.

    What is CHKDSK?

    Windows command line to run a program, or utility, known as Check Disk. You can see where the command comes from. The Check Disk program is there to make sure that the computer’s files and file system are in order.
