    CHKDSK /F always stuck at 100% on C: only


    To describe the issue as short as possible:

    - 850Evo 500GB, only 2TB written, bought 1 months or so ago, working, I'd say, perfectly.
    - executing chkdsk c: /f would get stuck at 100%. I would have to reboot from the PC hard reset button, nothing else works
    - on rebooting, there would be a short flash of "Scanning disk .... 100%" and boot would continue just fine
    - there would be just one Wininit event generated. It looks from it that chkdsk finishes, but cannot reboot automatically for whatever reason
    - Win 10 RS4 VM is working normally and reboots fine, so there's something on my PC... this is where I need help detecting what is it without another OS install/reset
    - PC behavior is normal, no actual problems, but I'm annoyed by this behavior where the command can't reboot the PC after finishing

    What I tried:
    - removing Kaspersky IS, Easeus Backup/Partition Master, clean rebooting, sfc and dism (all clean and no issues), running the command from cmd instead of powershell (yeah I tried that ...), reverting BIOS to defaults so there's no UEFI-only, Secure Boot boot.

    Again, things SEEM to work, it's just that for whatever reason, something interferes with chkdsk after it completes. Any idea how do I find out what it can be?

    Another RS4 fresh reinstall later, issue is fixed. All that remains now is avoiding whatever unknown application that messed up chkdsk.
