That means one of your drives has a "dirty bit" (Windows puts this into a drive to have it scanned the next boot) and either that scan/repair does not complete, Windows is being stubborn, or the drive is damaged badly.

Let's try to make sure that the scan goes off nicely first.

Run (x for drive letter, such as C, and do it for all connected drives)
chkdsk x:
and
chkdsk /f /r x:
(in drive C you will have to set it to next restart, accept and restart it)

and see if it goes well. Note the results.
