Default NTFS File Checking

Whenever I use my dad's PC, something weird happens. Every time I turn it on, it goes thru NTFS file checking, like it does when you forcefully shut the machine down. I did it once, and since then, it has kept doing it. Nothing seems to stop it. Any ideas?

It does this when i boot into XP Pro SP2.

Thanks everyone.

CHKDSK recommends to run a check with the /F switch

If that dont work

To determine if more serious problems exist before scheduling or running chkdsk.exe with the /f switch, run chkntfs <drive letter>:. If this command reports that dirty bit is set, there may be real damage that needs to be fixed.
