I had an issue with my hard drive a few months ago with my computer freezing, followed by a chkdsk on a forced reboot. I fixed the issue after investigating the cause in Event Viewer (I determined it was a .dll file from my anti-spyware program). I uninstalled the program and the problem went away, though I still thought it was strange.
I assume the problem I am having now is related. I decided to do a bunch of updates to my OS using Windows Updater, since I was a bit backed up (Vista 64 Bit). During the updating process, I experienced some random resolution changes, followed by a blue screen. An automatic chkdsk followed. I scheduled a full chkdsk and restarted. However, my computer cannot complete a full chkdsk. It hangs up around 24% and quits out of the chkdsk, and instead just launches Windows.
Now, I am getting about 5-10 system errors every 10-30 seconds. "The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume OS (my C drive)"
I am assuming that this is an unrepairable error, and that my hard drive will inevitably fail soon, but does anyone have any input on the situation?

your windows installation is currupt, or components or programs that are running are currupt, since your PC is failing to do the diskcheck, the only other option is to reistall windows.
try Ashampoo HDD control
it's a trial, but it should tell you the S.M.A.R.T status of your drive and if anything is failing and what could be causing it.
