I'd strongly recommend following my previous post, chkdsk is mainly for file system errors and can't see a lot of relocated and bad sectors.

Mate if it all comes back - back up the lot especially the registry.
If you have to use anymore scans then there are some here Probably the Best Free Security List in the World click on 4. and then 4.3 - RKill there are these too -

The standard for us is instantaneous response, never hangs, hesitates or bogs at all. Any less than that is compromising because Win7 will always perform that way with a perfect install on adequate tested hardware.
