Let the scan run and see what it reports. Sounds like the drive has bad sectors. What brand of hard drive? You will probably need to run the manufacturers utility to test the drive. If it detects many bad sectors it will be time for a new hard drive.

If it checks your drive each time it starts up then remove it from Scheduled Tasks. :thumbsup:
