Hey,

 

So here are my results from Speccy:

 

http://speccy.piriform.com/results/JcxwHDGp2mCUi4aQdVTwRt4

 

My computer's been super slow after fighting off a malware attack, and I shut my computer on and off my force many times because it was shutting down and turning on reallly slowly.  Then I got this error from the Event Viewer:

 

Error: (04/09/2014 05:20:57 AM) (Source: volsnap) (User: )
Description: The shadow copies of volume C: were aborted because of an IO failure on volume C:.
 
Error: (04/09/2014 05:20:20 AM) (Source: atapi) (User: )
Description: The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort0.
 
 
 
Now I have to find a way to combat this problem....how do I do this?  A guy in the original thread for my issue, in which HDD corruption was the conclusion for, said this is a result of corruption.  Is this true?  Original thread is here
 
 
Anyways, my dad said to transfer all of my data onto the external hard drive we have and then restore this computer to factory default, then load all of the data back on.  Should I do this?  Is there a less extreme method, or do I need to do something else?
 
Thanks.
 
EDIT:
I've done a lot of things to troubleshoot, such as a defragmentation, error checking, registry cleaning with Ccleaner, and more.

Try a disk check
Open the Command Prompt, admin if Vista or newer

Type in chkdsk /r
press enter, type in y, press enter
restart the computer

You Dad may be is right, lets see what happens with Chkdsk.  I also think you should run file checker, I do not think you are having a hardware issue.  Link to System File Checker instructions: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833

Oh, right.  Thanks for your diligence in assisting me, but I've completed that, too, earlier on.  It said nothing was wrong...but yet that error appeared in Event Viewer.

Try to avoid using a registry cleaner.
