Hi Lfitz,

 

When chkdsk runs at boot time or from the Recovery Console, it creates C:\bootex.log file.

However you will only see this file if boot-time chkdsk is interrupted or when you are using the Recovery Console chkdsk.

When Windows next boots, it copies any C:\bootex.log file to an entry in the Application Event log, titled "WINLOGON".

The bootex.log file is then deleted.

 

Event Viewer is the place to look for "WINLOGON", so look for entries with Winlogon listed as the source of the entry at time of the Start of Windows.

Click Start =>click Run => type eventvwr.msc /s => Hit Enter => Event Viewer => click Application => doublle-click Winlogon

 

You can also save result of DOS commands to text files as below:

 

chkdsk /f C: > C:\Report.txt

 

It works only if chkdsk is used without a parameter in the Command Prompt window.

Otherwise you will be in blank screen and there are no processing.

Press CTRL+C to cancel the command.

 

 

Cheers.

Hi enoskype. Hope you don't mind my 2 cents. You were very right to shut down that thread. That's all I have to say about that. This is another way to get to WINLOGON. I hope you don't mind. You know how I love my attachments LOL.
