Still stuck now? If it doesn't finish, I'd have to suggest a diagnostic from the manufacturer of your hard drive.
The file system (NTFS) is sorta like a layer between the hard drive and Windows - it gives the instructions on how things are stored on the hard drive in a manner which Windows can use. So (basically) the problem can be with the hard drive, with the file system, or with Windows.
The diagnostic from the hard drive manufacturer will rule out the hard drive as the source of the errors.
The chkdsk /r will rule out the file system as the source of the errors.
If both of those pass, then it's gotta be a Windows problem.
Chkdsk /r freezing for an extended period usually isn't a good sign (although there's many things that can affect it). If it doesn't complete, then (IME) it's most likely a problem with the hard drive (and the diagnostic will confirm/deny this supposition).
