Preferred Solution: Auto Check Program not found - Skipping auto check

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

"autochck.exe not found- SKIPPING AUTO CHECK", my computer keeps saying this when it starts up. It boots up properly but before it gets to the login in screen it shows the message then starts all over again. It is a windows xp, and i do not know what caused it to do that.

Does anyone know what seems to be the problem?

Answer:Problem starting up-Auto Check program

Hello and Welcome to TSF

Can you boot into Safe Mode?

Try this:
Place your windows cd in the cd rom and boot to it. You may need to change the boot sequence in the BIOS.

1. Boot off of a Windows XP CD. Press R to get to the recovery console.

2. Press 1 to log onto Windows then press Enter. You will need the administrative password to get into to command prompt. If the administrator password was blank press enter.

3. Type: chkdsk /r

4. When the disk check is done type: Exit

5. Take the Windows XP CD out. Boot the system.

I want to setup Outlook to automatically dial online every hour to check for new email messages. I have found how to setup Outlook, but I cannot get Dial-up Networking to automatically dial without prompting me for my password. I know there is a way to store the password and have it auto connect. How can I do this?

Answer:Auto check for messages

If you are bypassing the windows password when you login (in other words, just hitting "cancel" instead of using a password) your password list will not load with Windows. Therefore, your dial up networking password will not be available, and you will need to enter it manually.

To stop this, either use a Windows password, OR, better & easier yet, leave the box blank and hit OK instead of cancel. This will result in you not having to have a windows password, and allow your password list to load up. Once you have done that, you should be able to save your password in dial up networking and automatically connect however you have it set up in Outlook.

Hope this helps!

My question is we have a table of trucking companies. In that table there is also a check box to mark whether they are 3rd party or not. We are using this table as a validation for another table so only the trucking companies we put in can be used in a drop down list (auto complete or whatever). So they also want the 3rd party checkbox in the other table to auto check based on the trucking company name. Is this possible?

I am pretty good with access but this is something i've never done and trying to come up with a phrase to ask google to help me is not giving me the results i am looking for.

Here is the quick and dirty.

User A goes into enter a new work order. He chooses a trucking company from the drop down list which validates off the trucking table. Also in the trucking table there is a checkbox marking that it is a 3rd party company. There is a checkbox on his table that we need to auto check since he picked a 3rd party trucking company.

Can anyone enlighten me as to how this can be done?

Hello, all, and thank you in advance for the assistance. I am currently working on a customer's Toshiba Satellite C55 running Windows 8. Upon initial review, it was obvious that the machine was badly infected with numerous junkware and adware. Per our standard operating procedures, I backed up relevant data and restarted the machine in safe mode. Junk programs were uninstalled via CCleaner, scanned using MBytes, made copies of registry and repaired using CCleaner, cleaned up HDD using CCleaner, and restarted to Windows 8 (regular). Up to this point, all programs are installed from a flash drive. Typically, upon restart from safe, we run ESET Online Scanner. However, I noticed immediately that Chrome was giving me the "Could not connect to proxy server" error. I checked setting in Chrome to find that the "Proxy" tab was grayed out. I opened Internet Options from control panel -> Advanced -> LAN settings to find, as I had assumed it would be, the Proxy button selected. I deselected the Proxy settings, re-selected Automatically Detect Settings, and clicked OK. Same error from Chrome. Checked LAN settings again to find Proxy checked. Following this, I ran ComboFix, to no avail. Basically, every time I deselect Proxy settings (and even when I delete all Advanced Proxy Settings fields), something is automatically selecting it again. I have a few days to complete this, so no big rush. I really appreciate the help.

I have Word 2002, SP3, for Windows Office XP Pro.

My problem is I want to permanently turn OFF the autocorrect options (all of them: correct initial capitals, correct first letters of days, etc etc, autoformat, as well as auto text and auto type).

Yes, I have unchecked all the boxes in Tools > Autocorrect Options, the problem is I have to painstakingly go though all the boxes every time I open Word and uncheck them. My setups are not remembered.

I can't figure out how to make these options stay set this way.

I've tried installing the Office Resource Kit and setting a system policy (though I am the only user on this PC), but no success.

I had to rebuild my system a month ago -- before that, I never had any problems, Word seemed to remember exactly my preferred set up and saved autocorrect options etc to the normal template.

I checked the normal template and it is in Doc Settings folder where it should be.

I searched the forums and Word help but can't seem to find any advice, mainly because most people usually run these options and they only wish to modify the instances where they apply, rather than permanently disable them.

Please help! Much appreciated! Thanks!

So I recently installed Windows 7 Home Premium on an Acer Aspire 5349. I've been having a bunch of issues with it since the install.

Firstly, When I boot, it takes me to the "Disk Check" screen and tells me that one of my disks needs to be checked for consistency. However, the disk in question isn't something like "C:" or "D:" it's "\\?\volume{c4afec15-cb60-11e4-9583-806e6f6e6963}". The disk check also automatically cancels. It doesn't prompt me with the usual " Press any button to stop the disk check" option, just straight to " Disk check has been cancelled"

When I eventually get to the desktop, I get the screen " Windows detected a hard disk problem ". I look at the details and I'm told that my C:\ drive has been reporting failures. When I check the status of the disk via the Disk Management tool I'm told that all my partitions are healthy.

When I actually use the laptop, it's very slow and frequently freezes. It takes a while to catch back up and sometimes these freezes lead to a BSOD. The BSOD message was KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR. I checked the event viewer and it also seemed that before certain crashes I would have driver controller error on an IDE Port. I've attached a picture of the disk check screen, event viewer, and memory dump. I apologize about the quality of the pictures, I couldn't screenshot the images on the actual laptop as it was freezing and crashing too often.

x]o program not found skipping autocheck
c]o program not found skipping autocheck

ive googled the messages and have been informed that the problem is a result of a corruption in the BootExecute , in the registry. i have to delete the multi-string, which , at present, consists of the word autocheck twice and a number of symbols and replace it with the default :-
autocheck autochk *.

i double click BootExecute, which opens a Edit Multi-String box containing ."value name" ie. BootExecute, and "value data" as below
autocheck x}0?U!?&
autocheck ?}0pD!D????M
autocheck lsdelete

my question is, do i simply delete the present "value data" and type the default autocheck autochk * into the box and click ok.
am i correct that there is a space between the two words and another before the asterisk.

OS::: XP w/ SP2

I am having a problem.

I installed a trial version of Diskeeper (DK) two months ago… used the program with good results, let it expire, & eventually uninstalled it.

Yesterday, downloaded DK again (two months later & after trying other defrag programs (which also worked great))… the second download of Diskeeper wouldn’t work after installed, indicated by a prompt to purchase the software.

I uninstalled DK and went about my normal computing routine & shut down with no drama.

This morning, I start up my p/c and get a quick prompt noting: "OODBS program not found -skipping auto check".

P/C boots up & functions fine otherwise.

It's advised in the guide to make a more thorough virus/spyware scan by doing it in safe mode so I pressed F8 during boot up, but it proceeded to boot normally instead of giving me the option for safe mode and right before the login screen, a blue error screen showed up with the message: "sprecovr program not found. skipping autocheck". After I logged in everything seemed normal (maybe a little bit slower, but I could be just projecting) and I restarted to see if the error would show up again and it did. It shows up every time now right before the login screen.

I tried searching for this type of problem involving sprecovr file, but I couldn't find anything substantial, so I'd really appreciate some help.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:sprecovr program not found. skipping autocheck

I would add to that guide to download and run a full scan in Safe Mode with Networking. If F8 won't work try F5. You must start hitting it right after the POST beep but before the Windows XP Splash Screen.

Running Win XP Pro..

Okay, I'm removing Norton from my coputer, I go their site and download 3 programs to do this.
After running the second it tells me to reboot.
It starts up, finds the drives etc, then goed to the NORTON GO BACK screen, more dos stuff, then flashes "Autochk program not found, skipping auto check"

Then it goes back, sees the drives etc, the GOBACK screen, it's stuck in a loop.

I tried using GOBACK, wouldn't do anything, tried going to "last known good", no luck there either, next I'll ry safe mode but unsure what to do from there.

MAybe I should boot from my CD, ty to do a reapir or what?
How can running a Norton program to get rid of Norton cause so many problems?

Please excuse in advance the long verbage....

Background: this is a WIn XP SP2 system, I built it, with a DP35DPM mother board, 2 physical SATA drives, and a DVD drive. hdd0 is partitioned as C: --(60GB) and D: --(240GB). hdd1 is E: --(320GB). D: and E: only contain data. C: has win xp and programs.

About 6 months ago, on rebooting my computer, it failed to get an IP address. My laptop and son's computer were able, however, to connect via the same ethernet jack. A friend suggested I run CleanUp! I did, rebooted and wala! Problem solved.... until the next reboot. This time CleanUp! made no difference. Same friend suggest Malware. Ran it, found a few things, quaranteened and deleted, reboot. Wala. Internet connection..... until next reboot. Of course, Malware made no difference this time. Friend ran out of ideas. I installed "RegistryDefense", ran it, made the suggested fixes (about 60 of them!), reboot, wala.

By now, I am getting the idea and trying to run my PC 24/7 to avoid reboots. This is about 1 months after the 1st occurrence of the problem. At this point, all my clicks on google searches are redirected to spam sites. This problem seemed to evolve as well.

Answer:autochk program not found - skipping AUTOCHECK

I have read this three times.
It must be Sunday night syndrome but the thread title suggests that on boot this is the message
autochk program not found - skipping AUTOCHECKClick to expand...

That indicates that a chkdsk has been scheduled, and cannot run as the necessary entries to run it are missing.

There is little doubt that this is the result of the "RegistryDefense" program.
Have a look at this
I do not think I need to say anymore about that ACTUAL program.
In relation to registry cleaners in general see the link on my signature and be advised - please keep away from them.

Any opinions out there from the gurus? SHould I try to go back to the old install with all my nice programs? Or should I just stick with my new installation and work to keep it clean?
Click to expand...

If this is now your ONLY real question. If you go back to the old - why do you not think you will have all the problems you did have, even apart from those created by the registry cleaner.

My advice is to edit your boot.ini, so that you boot from ONLY the new installation.
Uninstall that unwanted and clearly dangerous so called registry defense.
CREATE a restore point.
DELETE all previous restore points.

When you have what you need uninstall/delete all from the old installation.

See this link. Are you running anything like a Diskeeper defrag program? Always be careful editing the registry. The problem is I can't say what will happen when the registry key is edited in Windows 8. What is the contents of the registry key shown in the link. You can export the key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
and then copy and paste the contents in your next post.

I am doing a lot of from-scratch vanilla Windows 7 installs and am wondering if there is a way to get the whole bit about Windows Updates and reboots done automatically? It would be nice that if after installation + NIC drivers loaded + OS activated I could run some program that would work on triggering WU to download and install (except optionals) + reboot + repeat when needed until there are no more Windows Updates available.

It would allow me to spend only 15 minutes with a computer rather than babysit it for several hours constantly checking to see if it wants a reboot + start Windows Updates again after machine has rebooted, etc.

Answer:Doing lots of vanilla Win7 installs - a way to auto-reboot and auto-start updates?

Is this for identical systems or for different hardware each time?
You could use a pre-made image (that contains the drivers) with all the updates that would be pushed out to the machine. You could also try something like WUInstall and the reboot cycle option.

A SPAMmer does not need access to your Gmail account in order to use your email address.
They can use whatever SPAM-sending program they like to send out email using *-your-* email address in the Sender's field.
Then, if any of the email addresses they sent the email to happen to be invalid, the unsuccesful delivery messages would be returned to you simply because your email address was in the Sender's field.
In order to stop this, you would have to find the person using your email address and hang them by the neck until dead. ;)

Have had Y410p for years without this issue. Now when I move the mouse cursor across the screen, it auto clicks/auto selects (without me tapping or clicking) and then release automatically as well. It will do this continuously as I keep moving the mouse cursor with the Touchpad. This is super annoying and causes multiple issues with my ability do most things on my Lenovo laptop. The two biggest problems are: click buttons which I do not intend and selecting/moving icons & screens which I do not intend. And it makes it nearly impossible to use the laptop for gaming. I have downloaded and reinstalled the Touchpad ELAN driver (version for my O/S Windows 8). I have gone through Mouse Properities setting and ELAN Smart-Pad settings. I have disabled Tapping, but does not make a difference. I have set Sensitivity to max Low and then max High, but does not make a difference. Any ideas on how to solve this particularly annoying Touchpad issue? Help please! Thanks.

:wave Welcome to Major Geeks! :major

Yeah, that is kind of confusing if you're not familiar with the whole process. Click this link for a MUCH clearer step-by-step complete with screen shots. Howver, this process is only if you have Windows XP with Service Pack 3 installed and you need to install KB888111 which is the Microsoft high-definition audio update. You cannot install this update with SP3 (it's built-in and therefore won't let you install it to repair or replace it). If you have Service Pack 2 or earlier, you don't need to follow the steps in the link I just provided. If you could please read this thread and then post again describing exactly what the problem is, we'll be happy to help.

To set a restore point: click Start, click Run, type %windir%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe and press Enter -OR- Click Start, go to All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. This will open the System Restore interface. From here, it's very simple to set the restore point by simply following the on-screen prompts.

Is there some reason you suspect a virus? If you spilt coffee on it then that's likely to be the reason you have keyboard issues. For now, remove the main battery then clean the keyboard with kitchen roll as best you can (especially between the keys). Afterwards support the laptop somehow and turn it so that the laptop keyboard is upside down. Keep it like that in a warm place and don't rush to use it for a few days. It might well need a proper repair.Keep watching for other ideas on this. Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

I have a nice little database that I set up to track donations of items to our organization. The primary table tracks the donor information: name, address, etc. (main form) and I have created a related table that tracks the date of donation and items donated utilizing a sub-form. Thanks to the fine help I received here I was able to relate these tables using a “Link_ID” field and it has worked nicely. (One donor could have multiple donations.)

Now, I’d like to enhance things a little bit. When I enter donor information into the main form and then go to the sub-form for the donation information, I’d like the business_name field to autofill as I start to type. Now, I know this can be done because most commercial databases have this function. Quicken is one that comes to mind. I know it has to pull this information from somewhere, I just need to know how to get it to work!

I have been unsuccessful finding any pertinent information on an “autofill” field in some sources. (I really don’t want a drop-down list box because this could potentially get too large.)


Answer:Auto complete or Auto Fill field in Access?

Yes, well, unfortunately, in Access, the drop-down list is the only type of control that uses auto-fill, unless you want to use a text box and code (there's an example of that in the developer's handbook, but it's complicated).

No matter how big your list is, if you sort the underlying query alphabetically on company name, it will still autofill, and you can even build a not-in-list response to add new customers...

Make sure the auto-expand property of the drop-down (or combo) control is set to Yes, and you'll see that you never even have to drop down the list...

I have Windows XP on my computer, but still am using Outlook 2000.
Messages come in automatically at regular intervals, but when I send an email, I must click on the "SEND/RECEIVE" button, or it will sit there until I do! It doesn't send even when a new message is coming in.

What can I do to fix this?

Answer:Outlook 2000 auto-receives, but does not auto-send

Hi Indy and welcome to the forums,

I have no experience with Outlook 2000 unfortunately but I would assume you have a setting turned off - something along the lines of 'Send e-mails automatically'.

I think it would be in Tools > Options? I suggest just hunting around in there and checking various settings

Hope this helps,

Does anyone know how to completely turn off auto capitalizing and auto correct in WPS Office?
I need the text to stay the way I type it, I don't want it to be "corrected".

p.s. I saw the options "Change Case", but when I choose "Sentence Case", the program returns to "Toggle Case" by default for some reason; also, tools>options>edit>auto correct doesn't contain/list all the changes that this program actually makes to the document, so I cannot uncheck them there...

Yesterday I downloaded a file that I believe infected my desktop computer (Bad Dobby! Dobby will have to punish himself most grievously).Avast did say it was scanning the download for viruses and then allowed me to save it to my desktop. Avast did not catch it until it had finshed downloading then it warned me of a worm. I imediately allowed Avast to deal with it (quarientine it) but almost instantly I lost internet connectivity and windows firewall was shut down. I use a router and my laptop can still connect to the web but I cannot get the desktop to connect through the same connection. I am using the laptop to download/post etc.Avast was up to date.I cannot run Kaspersky scan on the desktop as free version is online scan only.I have done a full Avast scan and it found the autorun.inf on both the C: and F: internal drives on my desktop. Avast quarientined both and I asked it to delete them. On reboot there is not change in the problem. Windows starts with the firewall disabled and I have no internet connectivity. I can manually restart Windows Firewall and have before any scans as instructed on the guide pages.I reviewed FAQ/guides on the site and noted 1.

Answer:Avast Found BV:Auto Run-T(WRM) C:\autorun.inf

I apologize but I had to move forward on my problem as my family was without a functioning computer that they rely on for schooling. I realize it would have been preferred for me to wait for the input.I will provide a summary to help others (in particular the techs) and hope someone can direct me to the best place to fix a few of the odd remaining ?quirks? from this infection.I searched further on the ?Gaopdx? worm and found discussion of using MBAM and then ComboFix. I downloaded both to my laptop through the same router my desktop is connected to (as the desk top connection was still dead to the same router). I used a thumb drive to move the files to the desktop and tried to install MBAM. MBAM ?installed? but I could not load it. I followed each recommendation systematically that I found here (see Feb 20 2009, 08:49 PM post)None of the suggestions to run MBAM (changing extensions and not using the mouse) worked.I then installed ComboFix. It asked me to install Windows Recovery Console but as a result of the infection the connection was down and this was not possible. I went ahead and ran ComboFix. ComboFix found and removed quite a few types of Gaopdx and after a couple of restarts during the running of ComboFix the computer is running fine now.I then ran MBAM short scan and long scan and the computer came up clean in both cases.The only scars left from the Gaopdx worm is Windows Firewall is always off when the co...

I'm troubleshooting sound driver issues and have come across something peculiar. I tried shutting off the auto driver update for windows because I do not want the specific drivers that they are going to use. In the screenshot you can see that an installation occurs even with the setting turned off. My question is, are these some default generic type audio drivers such that they will not interfere with the soundcard drivers? Is this some background type driver that will be installed regardless?

You can click on the picture to enlarge it up to enlarge it up to 1680x1050.

Thanks for help.

EDIT: Updated with screenshot

Answer:No Auto Update is Auto Updating? Screenshot

Updated with screenshot. Sorry about that.

Good day to everyone,

I've bought some parts of my system (processor, motherboard, memory, graphics card) this January 2007. Here are the specs:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz
Asus P5B-Deluxe
2GB DDR2 paired Corsair XMS2 series (placed in interleaved mode)
Nvidia 7600GT 256MB 128-bit
4 Storage devices:
-1 Seagate 80GB SATA
-1 Seagate 250GB SATA
-1 Seagate 40GB PATA (master)
-1 Sony DVD-Writer (slave)
535 Watts Enermax EG565P-VE 24P
Samsung 19" 940BW (connected using DVI)
Leadtek Winfast TV2000 Tuner (PCI)
Standard A4Tech PS2Keyboard
Brandless USB optical mouse
Windows XP Service Pack 2

The problem started two days:
-the system randomly resets itself at random stages of boot/use: before POST could begin (before the first beep when the basic info on the graphics card is displayed); during POST; in the BIOS setup; after POST; during OS startup; OS running, idle or in use.
-at random, either after an auto-reset or manual power-on, the system will immediately (before the basic info on the graphics card is displayed) auto-off for 3 seconds then auto-on.
-at random, after an auto-reset, the screen will just be blank and the power button won't work, even after pressing it for more than 4 seconds.
-at random, though seldom but only after an auto-reset, BIOS would report that I have misconfigured my overclock settings (sorry, I can't recall the exact statement) even though i have never overclocked my system or tampered w/ the timings and voltage settings.... Read more

Assume I boot Win10 from an USB flash drive on various computers.

The max possible resolution differs from computer to computer.

I could always manually fiddle through the menus and set the current max.possible resolution manually.
But this is uncomfortable.

Is there a utility or cmdline command which searches automatically for the max possible resolution and set it up accordingly?


Answer:How to auto-detect and auto-adjust max.resolution?

theres a thing called EDID that should do it for you without any extra tools or command lines. its basic stuff for all the analog or digital video signals between pc and monitor.

things like bad / wrong cable can do the issues easily.

My mouse keeps auto scrolling or auto zooming. For example: I visit Google Maps in Chrome/Edge and the mouse instantly zooms in. Or I open Explorer and the mouse auto scrolls down to the bottom of the window.

Does anyone know how to fix this? There is no indication of a virus. I am running WIN 10 (64 bit) on a desktop PC (no touchpad). All device drivers are up-to-date. I also swapped the mouse with a different one and the same thing happens (so that leads me to believe it's a configuration setting).

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I just ran across a problem with 10240. When I used my touchpad to move around the desktop, icons are automatically selected and started. The problem went away after a restart but now I am very careful using my touchpad. I think I may have to look and see if a new driver is available.

I want to have a program (B) close automatically when I quit another program (A).

I have created a .bat file, and it looks like this:

start "" steam://run/220260
start /min "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Orekaria\Gamers Window Relocator\GamersWindowRelocator" GamersWindowRelocator.exe

What I would like to do it have the "GamersWindowRelocator.exe" (B) quit automatically when I exit/quit the first program (steam://run/220260) (A), witch is a game.

Is this possible in CMD?
