disk verification launched after each shutdown/restart

1st, it's not my PC but it's a friend's one.
2nd, if it happens every boot itself, the solution would be to disable it
without searching for real causes ?
(fs problems/possible hard disk faults, inability to kill some proc. etc)

Could you boot on Ubuntu CD, choose "Try without install", and then System->Administration->Disk Utilities and fsck the disk to see if they are errors.
Check also SMART data with same software.
Did the disk some noise (clicks) ?
At shutdown, press <esc> key to remove graphic screen and check if shutdown process normally.
Since when did it happen ?

Can you help with this problem?
