    Hi, I'm new on these forums and this is my first post. Nice to meet you all.

    Anyway, I have windows Vista Business and it's my first time switching from Windows XP. I explored most of the OS already and tried out the new features. Here's my problem:

    I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool 5 days ago, for the first time. I hit "run diagnostic check on the next reboot" and it scheduled a diagnostic memory check for me.

    I know i don't have memory problems but i ran the test anyway. It came back with no errors in my memory. Now I log back into windows after it self-restarts and it tells me that no errors were found. Now all is good, except now every time i reboot, the memory diagnostic tool runs, checking my memory.... it takes 8 minutes if I don't cancel the test myself and it's getting annoying.

    Is there anyway to stop this thing from running every time i boot up? The diagnostic test runs after the P.O.S.T. and before Vista begins to load.

    here are my machine specs:
    Lenovo T61 laptop
    Intel Core2Duo 2.4ghz T7700
    Nvidia 140m
    2gb RAM and 1gb turbocache
