Hello again!

Yes, you need to schedule it to run next time you restart the computer. Repeat the procedure for all hard disk drive (C:, D:, etc).

Next time you restart the computer, do not press any key, but just wait until the disk check has been finished. It may take about 15-20 minutes to finish.
