Alochai,
-----------------------------------------------------------
Hard Disk Repair
IF Chkdsk has found any errors having to do with bad sectors in your file system, or if it reports that it cannot continue in Read-Only Mode, it needs to run a different sequence on reboot to do repairs. It can't repair the file system while Windows is running.
DO NOT START THIS SEQUENCE UNLESS YOU CAN DO WITHOUT THE MACHINE FOR AN HOUR OR TWO. It may not take very long , but could, depending on the number of files and folders.
It will not relinquish control until it is done. You cannot stop it, and it would be a BIG mistake to pull the plug.

If it's present on your Desktop, please delete your original file Checkhd.txt
Go To Start, Run and type cmd
hit <Enter>
Type this black text into the command window at the prompt:
chkdsk c: /F <==notice the /F, with one space between c: and /F
hit <Enter>
You will get a message that the volume is locked, with a request to do the repair on Reboot.
Answer Y
Then type exit to close the Command window.
Go to Start, Turn Off Computer and choose Reboot
It will scan again when it boots up and make the repairs as the first part of the reboot process.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Check Hard Disk For Errors
Press Start->Run, then type or copy/paste the following command into the box and press OK:
Code: Select all
cmd  /c  chkdsk  c:  |find  /v  "percent"  >> "%userprofile%\desktop\checkhd.txt"
A blank command window will open on your desktop, then close in a few minutes. This is normal.
A file and icon named checkhd.txt should appear on your Desktop. Please post the contents of this file.
If it's very long just post the last 30-50 lines.

Go ahead and perform the "Hard Disk Repair" and "Check Hard Disk For Errors" sequence again, and post the result.

I repeated the repair/check Hard Disk sequence for a third time. Log below, it came out exactly the same as the last iteration.

Alochai,
Unfortunately, you are in immediate need of a replacement hard drive.
You should copy any critical files off your machine, and get a hard drive replacement immediately.
Any delay may result in an inability to retrieve anything from it, and may result in a boot failure.

I'll back up any important files asap then. Unfortunately I do not have the means to purchase either a new HDD or a certified copy of a microsoft OS so i'll have to keep using this drive until it dies.

As any remaining issues do not involve malware and therefore fall outside the scope of this forum, this topic is now closed.
