Were you able to test your hard drive because if your hard drive is defective it does not matter what you try it will fail.

It would either confirm or eliminate your HD as the problem.

Usually you can start Explorer.exe manually by the cntrl-alt-del sequence and then clicking "New task".
Then type explorer.exe in the run dialogue box and click Run.
If you have to ultimately get a new drive then buy a docking station first and get a new drive too, then remove your old drive without formatting it and replace it with the new drive and set up your new OS.
Once you've done this plug in your docking station and dock your old drive into it and you'll have instant access to all the files you thought you lost.
