Stop Annoying "Do you want to scan and fix" Dialog

I recently purchased a Windows 7 license and did a clean installation. Everything was perfectly fine except one thing:  whenever i plugged my iPod or any USB storage devices, win7 keeps asking me “Do you want to scan and fix” …..

I found a solution for this. It’s simple.

– Plug your device. “Do you want ..” windows message appears. Just leave it there for now.

– Press the combination “Windows + R” to open the run dialog box. Type in cmd to open command line. Issue the command “chkdsk e: /f“. As for me, the usb storage device is mounted on E:, change it as where it’s mounted in your windows.

– You should perform this action once for each of your usb storage device, iPod and you won’t have to see that annoying windows dialog “scan and fix” again.

P.S: This supposed to work for Vista as well.

Bing 2.0 Coming This Fall?

As the tweets of many Microsoft’s employees, we will see a major update of Bing as early as next week.

“BING 2.0 terrific,” enthused another.

“Watch out guys ! bing + silverlight in maps = amazing !! goodbye google.”

Here’s all the spokesperson would say:

“We’re very excited about some of the new Bing features set to roll out over the next few months, but have nothing to announce today.”

On the other hand, Microsoft has swiftly declined the rumor saying Bing paid to the keyword “pornography” to be appear on Google Search results. (via CNET)
