A few weeks ago, I would get a Blue Screen pop up threatening to dump everything. I ran MBAM and Super Anti-Spyware, and Ad-Aware...just adware cookies and I deleted them.
Now, I keep getting a Hard disk error pop up. I've been "x"ing it out...I ran everything again, full scan- shows nothing.

I'm not sure what is going on, and if it's a true problem or a virus. Any help is most appreciated!

Can you post the error message...exactly as it appears onscreen?

Some hard disk error messages require near-immediate attention...and none are solved by running malware programs.

A BSOD is the system's way of...asking for help.

Hi! Sure, the box reads

Windows has detected a hard disk problem

Back up your files immediately to prevent information loss, and then contact the computer manufacturer to determine if you need to repair or replace the disk.

-> Start the backup process
-> Ask me again later
->Don't ask me about this problem again

Show Details:
Which disk is failing?
Disk Name TOSHIBA MK2555GSX ATA Device
Volume C:\;D:\


Just FYI my computer is a HP & I am running Windows 7

Thanks in Advance!

Did you backup?

I would assume that the drive is failing...move all data files to another drive, etc...then run the long hard drive test used by Hitachi.
