"Scandisk returned 245760 files in defective areas" is not a good sign. I'd be looking at replacing my hard drive asap. Having said that, if the data on your system is not important (e.g you just use the PC for internet access and collecting your emails and you have them backed up anyway) then this need not be catastrophic. The damage could have been due to a one-off problem and scandisk will have worked around it. The trick is to run scandisk (with a surface scan) often and make a note of how many bad sectors are recorded. If the number is stable you could just carry on regardless. If the number increases order your new drive immediately!
Bricat suggested that I might need a new hard drive, is this the case? How do I know whether the drive is OK?

I got as far as Storage> ATA in Everest, but nothing shows up in the Devices properties
If you've got any advice about cleaning the nozzles on the chicken soup machine or favourite websites about Napoleon I'd be interested to hear about them

I was not obsessive about Napoleon and I'll have you know cleaning the chicken soup machine nozzles played a vital role in maintaining crew moral and wellbeing. Of course they're all dead now, but still not a role to be sneezed at, at all! I can tell you!
Rimmer was the Napoleon obsessive who cleaned the nozzles on the chicken soup machine
I was wondering about that.
245760 BYTES in bad sectors
Nope, try a couple of months.
no change over a five-day period. Would you call this stability?
Order your new hard drive.
Now the question is what do I do?
