Let's start with the obvious. Is there anything attached via usb? If so, what happens when you disconnect it? If not, I suggest you post in the Am I Infected forum on this site.

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

 

Did you change anything prior to this starting?

 

From the error messages it may be that your C: drive is dying.

I disagree about the error pointing to the hard drive, but let's wait for the OP to respond and we can go from there ;)

I suggest you post in the Am I Infected forum. Let's rule malware in or out.
