Start with the hard drive tests, but complete ALL of them - and please let us know the results.
I suspect the hard drive because of the disk check results.
The disk check actually doesn't check the disk - it checks the file system on the disk.
So, unreadable files may (but also may not) be due to a failing hard drive.
Additionally, a system that's taking a long time to do things and that also has the hard drive chugging along (as evidenced by the green cylinder light being on constantly) are symptoms of a failing hard drive. What it's doing is re-reading/checking/writing the sectors that it's having a problem with.
