My SSD harddrive with Windows on it is running normally but anytime I try to access my other two harddrives, whether its to play a game or even something simple like opening an image, it is extremely slow and Explorer will often freeze up for several minutes. Even though I seriously doubt both harddrives suddenly went bad, I even tried to run the Windows diskcheck and it wouldn't respond so I closed it after several minutes. I also downloaded two other disk checking programs and both of them stop responding when I try to check the two drives. I'm sure its not the drives and I think something is wrong with Windows but I'm not sure what. 

 

EDIT: Actually, I was mistaken. I just noticed a minute ago that when I clicked on a folder on my SSD drive that has Windows, it was also slow loading it. But the main drive seems to work fine most of the time. This is very weird. I did have a virus a couple of months ago so could this have messed up Windows? I mean could that be causing this kind of issue?

Well my problem became much worse. I got a blue screen last night after moving files from my SSD to an external drive to back them up. And know i can't even boot my pc. I tried running both system restore and using an image to restorr but always get an error. I also tried using the windows repair option and now its stuck in some kind of loop where it says i need to reboot but when i do it goes straight back to the windows recover screen
