Ive tried everything I am able to. Ive cleaned with every "okay" program 5 times. Tried driver updates and will not get past window screen with blue flashing line. '

cant even install the driver updates.

safemode with networking works. 

started a few months ago with having to do multiple attempts at boot up. for blackscreen and arrow to turn into signin screen.

I have used 

HitmanPro, SUPERAntiSpyware, Emsisoft, AdwCleaner, Malwarebytes, tdsskiller, spybot, ccleaner, auto-runs. to no avail

Can you do this boot up in safe mode with networking, and then open up a command prompt and type in chkdsk /f and answer the question with a Y and then reboot.

well, whew,

it verified files 1-3, verified indexes 1-3, but when verifying security descriptors it made it to 3 of 3 five percent and it froze. I left it alone for a couple hours and no activity. So, I rebooted. It did not start up in normal. I tried safe with networking and it would just make a lot of processing noise and then reboot itself. I did that twice. So, then I tried safe without networking and it booted up. So then I tried safe with the networking once again and success.

Nope that would be the processor. Under Device Manager under Disk Drives there should be a listing of your disk drives.

It will look something like that in Device Manager in the right hand side of the picture. If you expand Disk Drives.

Please download and burn to a CD the following: http://www.seagate.com/files/www-content/support-content/downloads/seatools/_shared/downloads/SeaToolsDOS223ALL.ISO and perform the long / extended test to see the health and status of your hard drive. I am suspecting that it is in the process of failing.

I havent done anything yet. I had spent 5 days continuously trying to fix my computer problems. I've had my respite.

I am in normal mode now. Though I have no idea if it will next time.

Anyways, I need a few instructions on the ISO file. I found SeaGate web site. S.M.A.R.T. is this the same diagnostic file? If it isnt can I use it? If not can I use the burning instructions for CD creation because I really dont know how.
