    "frequently used chkdsik.exe..." Sure, how many average, run of the mill, novice, home users dual boot? How many novice home users ever run chkdisk.exe unless they are forced to by the OS (probably since they failed to shut down properly somehow)...and on top of that, for the "bug" in question to be a problem, chkdisk.exe must be run on a drive other than the primary boot partition (a drive other than the drive the Win7 OS is installed on) and the user must have less than 2GB of RAM. How many average PC users (who mostly use their PC for a)Internet, b)Email, and c)Office productivity apps.) will this be a problem for? Virtually none. And MS will issue a patch via Windows Update like they have always done in the past...

    Definately not catastrophic or "show stopper"... Is a simple bug in a simple little utility that most people never even use unless the OS forces them to...and then it is a rare occurrence now a days as most people are aware on how to shut down their PC (even if someone were to push the power button on a newer PC, it would just tell Windows to shut down the PC...you would have to physically hold the power button in to shut down the PC without shutting down Windows, which would then trigger chkdisk.exe to start on the next Windows start...but one would have to go out of their way to do that.). Furthermore, it does not affect everyone, as more people have reported success using chkdisk.exe than have reported problems. It just uses a lot of RAM at the moment, but that will probably be fixed before Win7 is even available retail, which is still a couple months off...

    Anyway, as already stated, MS will most likely post updates on Windows Update to fix the problem. Nothing to see here... Old news... Beating a dead horse...

    Today it's "catastrophic"

    Yesterday it was a "show stopper"

    Three weeks ago it was a "bug"

    Nothing to see here. Move along.

    Yup...more FUD from attention seeking individuals who want to try to cause a panic. I dont know if the original poster thought about what he was doing when he made this thread (the 3rd thread on this same subject), but if he succeeds in doing anything at all, it will be to cause an undue panic with novice users who do not know any better. This thread serves no other purpose as there are already multiple threads abound speaking of this "issue" that is not really an issue at all.

    EDIT: Nothing to see here... Bury this thread... :)
