Hello Jeremy N Jacqulin McMurray

 

It is possible that your hard drive has issues such as bad sectors on it, this can not only cause the HDD to eventually fail mechanically etc it can also result in the OS being damaged which itself can and will lead to an unbootable computer.

 

Having read your malware topic I am aware of the slowing down of the computer but can I ask if the HDD is or has been making any unusual noises.

 

As a priority, if you have not done so already back up all important data from the HDD, this because a flaky HDD can fail at any time + HDD diagnostic tools include a stress test which can bring HDD failure to the forefront.

 

Once all data is secured run chkdsk /r c: from  command prompt (note the space between k and /) Open the Start Menu, type cmd in the search box, right click on cmd.exe (at top), and click on Run as administrator

 

Post back with an update, can you also tell us what brand of hard drive you have so we can find the appropriate diagnostic tools.
