Check Geometry

Hi all,
I've got a large polygon dataset ( ~ 3.5 million polygons) and I know there's a number of geometry errors.
I've run the check geometry tool and joined the output to the original data to allow me to pan to the erroneous polygons.
The problem is that some of these polygons are very large and so it is sometimes very difficult to spot where the error (or even errors) are in the polygon and to make sure I find all of them.
Is there a way to be able to zoom straight into where the geometry error is rather than to the full extent of the erroneous polygon?
Unfortunately I can't run the repair geometry tool as I need to look at each error.

I've tried creating a topology for the dataset, but this gives me fewer errors.

I'm running ArcInfo 10.1 SP1 and have all the extensions available.

Any ideas?

Many thanks.
