    Received pop up from Spybot:

    Category: Session manager
    Change: Value changed

    Entry: BootExecute

    Old data: autocheck autochk/p\??\C:autocheck aut

    New data: autocheck autochk *\

    What does this mean? Shall I allow the change?

    Puter had hard time booting yesterday one time. Defragged it after. Thank you ST

    It looks like a chkdsk scan was scheduled to run and now the value is being returned back to the default. I would allow the change. :)
