Default CHKDSK: Dirty Volume problem..(XP SP2)

I've tried the reg edits here:

Troubleshooting Windows XP, Tweaks and Fixes for Windows XP

and here:

How to permanently disable Disk Check / Remove dirty bit that runs chkdsk upon reboot - Overclockers Forums

and here also:

C Page - Windows XP from A to Z

also this:

Disable Autochk on Reboot in Windows XP

But nothing has been able to help me.

I can get it to stop doing the check during boot, even if I let it run, it finds NO errors at all. Yet with the CMD console, it does say The Volume is dirty.

The problem is, I want to defrag, but I can't because CHKDSK / AUTODSK always runs and you can't defrag when it's set. None of the options I've tried has worked!! Ugh, what a pain. Thanks for any help.
