Hi, for some reason fsck has started checking my pc everytime I boot up. Is there anyway to turn this off as it is really slowing the boot process. Thanks.

That should not happen, perhaps you still have filesystem errors. But you might want to read and try this also:

After reading your link and others it seemed to indicate that I had a problem with my harddrive. I couldn't mount an external drive that usually mounted fine so I decided to re-install. The re-install sorted a few problems for me. Thanks for your help.
