Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.
 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.

Please download and run the HGST Windows Drive Fitness Test (WinDFT) from this site.

 

The Speccy log shows that there has been a warning regarding the S.M.A.R.T. status.  This means that the hdd may be failing.

 

I would suggest backing up all of your important data to a removable media, such as CDs, DVDs, another hdd, flash dirve, etc.
