I'm sorry, I should have been more clear. Reboot while holding down the 
Command and S keys. You
will get a black screen with a bunch of white text. Wait until it 
finishes scrolling. Type in fsck -y
at the prompt, an hit enter. Wait for it to stop. If it says " volume 
OK " type in "reboot" and enter. If it "volume has been modified" type 
in fsck -y again and repeat until is says "volume OK". Then type in 
reboot. That's it, should take less than two minutes.
