a few months back i decided to open the spreech recognition to use for a paper, but found it to be a waste of time. now everytime i start up the computer, the speech recognition always starts and it takes foever for it to load. then it tells me it can't start and i get a message telling me it is a corupt file and to do run: chkdsk. which i do, and nothing happens. \n\nsince opening the sr, my computer has either randomly shut down (then telling me it failed and it thought it was due to my kaspersky, but it couldn't find anything wrong with it) or would give me the blue screen of death upon starting while loading sr.\n\nis there any way i can tell for sure it is this stupid feature? if not, is there atleast a way i can turn the dumb thing off so it never loads? \n\nthanks!\n\nUPDATE: I checked the events log, and it told me that i needed to run the chkdsk for volume \Device\HarddiskVolume2. However, when i do chkdsk, the black box never comes up.
