Error during check!: Common hijacker

Please help. My disk drive will very often make 4 loud, quick "Access noises" in a row, over and over. This often happens when I'm online accessing a page. Recently it has been happening much more often. I've run SpyBot and receive the following message:

Congratulations!: No immediate threats were found. ()

Error during check!: Common hijacker (Datei C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\etc\hosts kann nicht geöffnet werden. Data error (cyclic redundancy check)) ()


Then, I will start AdAware running, finding 8 "New Objects", but it will not complete. It will get through 152,612 files. Then, it will stop scanning inside the System32 folder, and the "access noises" continually run 4 at a time. I must use Ctrl-Alt-Del to stop AdAware. Please note that I ran AdAware with the settings that I find you give out as advice to people who seem to have similar problems to mine.

Also, both SpyBot and AdAware have run well and clean before, but not now. I also downloaded and ran eScan antivirus Toolkit. It continually fails to complete, but before it fails, it finds a number of "errors" in a number of files. However, online TrojanScan (?), which your site suggested, ran and found nothing. (Although it did get stuck for a while inside System32 with the spinning noises.) Similarly, Norton almost fails to complete, because inside System32 and my digital pictures at a specific picture that eScan noted an error in, the disk drives spins for minutes. Most of the scan time, however, the drive spins and sounds fine.

Could this simply be my disk drive going bad? It really seems unlikely since much of the time I have no problem, and why do all of these programs have such problems and errors, and actually find what they think are "bad bugs" but then fail? I think I really need some help here! <_<

Thanks!

Unfortunately, I just downloaded and ran CWS but it failed to complete on numerous occasions. I also downloaded Hijack This and am posting its log below. Please note that just before I got back on your website, my IE opened a second screen and for a moment I saw "about : blank" in the name bar. Any thoughts?

I don't see any threats in your log. The "access noises" you describe do sound like signs of a failing hard drive.
