I'm gonna have to go to work, but I installed the NCE drivers before we started this. Would you like me to do it again after the Video drivers? I'll let you know how the video driver installation went.

Have you emptied your Temporary Internet Folder lately? You might also Delete all the cookies on your machine and empty the prefetch folder, as well.
Then defragment the drive again...whether it says it needs it or not.
Does this bring and improvment in speed?

The driver has detected that device \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 has predicted that it will fail. Immediately back up your data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure may be imminent.
Could this be causing the slowdowns as well as the error messages I was getting?

In a word...Yes. A failing hard drive can sertainly cause all kinds of problems. Back up all your importand files now, while you still can, and plan on replacing the drive in the near future. The last time I got that error, the hard drive failed less than 24 hours later....
