About a month ago my computer went through multiple inappropriate shutdowns (due to my ups battery dying) and thus ended up freezing (having a side by side configuration error)and bsod-ing(the stop code was critical process died) I had to do a clean re install of windows 10 but the computer was inappropriately shut down again and I had to install windows again

Since then my pc has had multiple issues
Sometimes it gave issues during startup such as getting an unexpected i/o error

It froze again one day, and I had to reset windows to get it to work

It had another error after updating (freezing) and I had to use system restore for it to work

After the restore it seemed to work normally for a while

Until yesterday

Now it's freezing up again,(but it doesn't freeze up immediately on startup it freezes randomly)
system restore doesn't seem to work

I have 12kb in bad sectors

And sfc/scannow found corrupted files it could not fix but they managed to be fixed with dism - restore health

But the computer still freezes up!!!

I left the computer running pretty normally and when I came back after about half an hour it was automatically on the unexpected i/o error screen (probably bsod occurred and the i/o error came up on restart)

It seems that I am restoring /resetting the system every few days

What can be done about this?

While waiting for a reply from the reports that were requested, please run these free hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

Please start with the hard drive diagnostics, but finish ALL of the tests.

If unable to boot to a disk to run the hard drive diagnostics, please run Seagate Seatools for Windows from within Windows.

Be sure to run the Long/Extended test.
