Ok so I had the windows 7 anti virus 2012 on my computer. I used these fourms on BC to try and help and get rid of it and I thought I had. So I downloaded microsoft security essentials to see if I had any remaining viruses and left for work. When I got home from work It said there where errors/threats and that I needed to restart my computer so I did so. But when I tried to restart it I got the Start Computer Normally or Do a system Repair screen. I tried to start my computer normally but whenever I do I get the Hard Disk error message it reads like this

Hard Disk Error
Please run the Hard Disk Test in System Diagnostics
Hard Disk 1 (3f1)
F2 System Diagnostics
for more information, please visit www.hp.com/go/techcenter/startup

So I restarted my computer again and that same menu popped up with the Start computer normally or Do a system repair. So I attempted a System Repair it took hours but nothing happened. Am I just being Impatient or is my computer wrecked?
Here are my specs:

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
Processor Speed: 2.13 GHz
Intel Core i3 330M
Graphics Card Intel GMA HD
Storage Capacity 320 GB

Did you run the Hard Disk Test?
