    First of all, I use the term geek affectionately.

    Secondly, this piece of shit has been at 26 percent complete (25946 of 113968 files processed) for over 2 hours now.

    What do I do now? Manually shut it down and start over?

    i find it best to tap f8 at startup and go that way. if you have a virus or something funky it could be causing the chkdsk to hang.

    i do like spazz's suggestion of posting what is running on startup via msconfig and if you can get to the taskmgr because i would love to know what is running on that machine. something ain't kosher.

    Same here, but that wouldn't affect the chkdsk.
    Ridic, try this first. Go to Panda and do their online scan. It's free. Bookmark it for future reference.
