    The message appears shortly after signing in at the 1st screen. BTW, I installed a program from Seagate that checks the hard drive. I ran a test nd it appears my HDD is OK.

    Go to this link: Each bootup and restart says . - Windows 10 Forums

    Scroll down to post #7.

    "I had the BIOS set up to boot in Legacy Mode, and that's when it was saying "Scanning and reparing drive at %100". But since I changed it back to UEFI in the BIOS, it has stopped saying that."

    Try doing that.

    Dalchina, I used a program from Seagate to check the HDD. The results indicated it was good. I'm just gonna forget about the whole thing and just hope for the best. My stuff is pretty well backed up in case the HDD takes a dive.Thank you and also thanks to all who responded.

    I would try the two suggestions that I stated after you posted the picture! Try them out before giving up on it! One of those methods could most likely work!!!

    Thanks, Pepanee. I don't think I want to delve any deeper. The computer is running fine otherwise and I don't want to chance messing anything up. i'm not yet an expert like you guys, but I enjoy learning. Maybe in the future I'll feel braver, or when I purchase a new machine, I can fool around with this one. Thanks again to all.

    BTW Pepanee, I did try one suggestion that directed me to make a change in the registry. I proceeded with caution and made the change, but the message on the screen is still there. I'm fearful of going any further, especilly if it means delving into the registry.

    Cool! Let's hope it stays that way! =)

    And yes, I understand that editing the Registry may make you feel a bit uncomfortable, and that is completely okay! I just hope that this thing doesn't appear anymore for you. I don't want you stressing out about how to get rid of it, hoping that it got rid of itself =)

    SUCCESS! Got it working I made a simple registry change at "boot exe" I changed the original key (autochk autochk*) to (autochk autochk /kC*). I thought I had done that before, but evidently it wasn't done correctly. Anyhow, glad to get rid of that message and the boot time is quicker. I'm also happy that my HDD is OK. Thanks to all who helped on this thread.
