Lenovo ThinkPad R60. I'm pawing through the manual, but nothing's really striking me, especially considering I don't even know how to describe the problem. It seems like a bunch of random unrelated issues, but since they all started in the course of a couple of hours I assume they're all stemming from the same thing.
As far as the point about the system software installed by the manufacturer goes; very possible. My laptop was purchased from my college after graduation (they have a "free laptop for every student" policy, and after graduation you have the option of purchasing it on the cheap), so it came bundled with a lot of features and software that you wouldn't see on a standard commercial laptop.

Something to remember is that you have at least 15% of your hard drive free for defrag to be operational. To grab some extra space before backing up, gain some extra space by reducing your Recycle Bin to 2 or 3% of the hard drive space - by default it is always set to 10%.

Why are you exiting out of Rescue and Recovery? I'm not familiar with that system, but after looking at the following website and description of the problem, it appears to work much like system restore (which would have been the first thing I try on my system):
I said yes and then rebooted (by the way, it seems that whenever I reboot it automatically wants to launch the rescue and recovery software on my laptop. I have to exit out of that program and essentially restart again.
This part is normal for everyone when you run Checkdisk. The other process is Windows Explorer, the shell. You have to reboot to shut that down so the disk check can be run from the command line.
Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts?
