So we need to know what/why the files are being corrupted.
Whenever I use windows explorer to look at files it'll crash. It starts to crash much quicker when I am am copying documents. It closes itself down the restarts fine. I have done a SFC /scannow which shows that only the Chinese mandarin language pack is corrupt.
Have you tried a "chkdsk /f" from an command window(cmd)? Do it as administrator, a reboot may be required.
I have also wiped the hard drive before which solved the problem, it then came back so I have just wiped the hard drive again. This time it has not fixed the problem.
A new OS will only solve the problem of the damaged OS, what's causing the damage will remain unless it's software related and you don't reinstall it.
I am thinking of upgrading to Windows 8 while it is on offer but wanted to get my laptop fixed before I upgraded it, alternately will installing Windows 8 fix the problem completely because it is a brand new OS?

chkdsk = Checkdisk
@Zen Seeker, I think the disk scan ran when i turned my laptop on today. If it ran where would it have stored the results?

@Hamluis I ran the file check because Zen Seeker asked me to

No log, just saves damaged files/folders if found. It cleans things up so to speak.
I got a black screen which went through different checks but I can't find the log file you said about.
