The check disc ran through the night, and is only at 11%. However, I have seen that it has made progress, because by the time I woke up, it had replaced about 50 bad clusters. It is still moving, but really slowly. Is it normal for this process to take this long. I know you said a few hours, but it's been a whole night. Should I let it finish at this slow rate?

Upload the CBS log please, Navigate to C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder. You'll see CBS.log file.
The log will be large so upload it to http://www.mediafire.com/ and then post download the link here.

Sorry, I forgot to paste it in the last message. Also, the update error was fixed. Windows updates normally again.

SFC found and repaired a lot of errors and significantly regarding Windows updates.

Have all important Windows been installed.
How is the computer behaving.

Final test, run the HDDs diagnostics tool;
Make sure you select the tool that is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287
Depending on the program it'll create a bootable floppy or a bootable DVD/CD.
If the downloaded file is the .iso type use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn the .iso file to a DVD/CD disk depending on your OS (select "Write image file to disc" option) and make the disk bootable.

RE ImgBurn: please use the custom install and uncheck the attached foistware such as "Install Entrusted Toolbar etc

The program is safe just keep in mind the above as that is most likely what caused the warning.

All important windows updates were installed and the computer is considerably faster :) However, when I tried to run dft from the bootable disc I created, it could not recognize my drive.

Strange but as the computer is fully updated and running faster I would be inclined to leave well alone and just back up important data regularly, do look out for any unusual behaviour or noises from the HDD as well though.
