If this is the Full message....
"Windows detected a hard disk problem." Back up your files immediately to prevent information loss, and then contact the computer manufacturer to determine if you need to repair or replace the disk... If the disk fails before the next warning, you could lose all of the programs and documents on the disk."

Backup all your data to external storage immediately in case the hard drive fails.
Probably not malware but a possible failing drive. Tell me your Operating System and I'll move this so hey can help you test it.
