Usually when you run a chkdsk /r from an elevated command prompt you will get an output saying the drive needs to be locked and checkdisk will start at the next reboot. Do you get this message?

Yes, you need to do a restart before chkdsk starts. You will not see anything after the notice saying to do a reboot.
If the computer is running slow the first thing I would do is check the hard drive using Seatools for Windows. The slowdown could be do to a failing drive. It's best to rule that out at the start.

Yeah, at start up I could see check disk doing its thing. Curious, but that link doesn't seem to be working for me. Maybe it's my mozilla settings. I turned off no scripts temporarily.

I just noticed it doesn't work for me either. It worked earlier today. Try this one. There is a link for Seatools for Windows along with the guide.
