OK that will make a difference because the instructions I gave is for XP.
Try this set of instructions for Win7.

Well once the pc restarted itself i logged on and i didnt notice any windows etc.. confirming errors or whatever. I selected the box to attempt to fix sectors though so i suppose it could have corrected things automatically.

Yeah that is the part I really am looking for. If the chkdsk found and marked sectors as bad because that means the hard drive is starting to have problems.
As much as it is a pain I need you to redo the chkdsk and watch for the results.
