I've considered the possibility it is actually failing, but I'm not convinced, first of all too many things seem to be going wrong at the same time for it to be a disk failure.
The problem started yesterday, when I was playing some pro evolution soccer, and it seemed like my save got corrupted and kept getting that error message. I downloaded some stuff off of some shady website in the past few days, so I'm sure it's a virus. I did not have an antivirus.
Add/remove programs didn't seem to work at first but now it does. Nothing I can remove from there that looks related to the virus.
I did src/ scannow from cmd.exe as adminstrator, but it didn't work, said something like it failed so I tried another running dism and selecting the disk in question and using the commands clean and clean up, which it did succesfully. Src/scannow still fails though.
Windows defender detected something so I told it to erase it and it did, but I still keep getting the message about my hard disk. After that I downloaded avast and did a scan, but didn't find anything wrong.
I tried turning on my camera, it told me an application is trying to access it without proper permission so I turned it off.
I tried running TDSS Killer, but it didn't find anything wrong.
This laptop has had a history of issues, the latest being the fan getting clogged and having the wrong version of windows (32 bit) installed on it.
Will update with more detailed info also looking for solutions until someone has a suggestion!
