I have having the same thing happening to me right now. Startup repair fails and also system restore. I have tried system restore from varous points. I went ahead and tried sfc/scannow in the command prompt and it tells me repair is still in process and needs to restart.

I found a similar thread on this site from a year ago and sounds similar to details I listed.
After read through that thread I recall that I got the same pop up over a week ago stating "Windows cannot read removable disk"
Also I had problems with a trojan virus 3 months ago and had the issues resolved after posting on this site. I don't know if this is related to that or not.
