No. I did install Windows 2000 on it initially then used an upgrade to 7 Ultimate, but no Linux. The Current build is Win 10 fresh install.

Did you ever wipe it with the clean or clean all command ?

You can get unuse to 10 faster then you got use to it
No: Diskpart, Chkdsk and fixboot etc. were the only things I have done.

So glad I never have computer problems
It's the opposite for me; I repair PC's for a living, but can never get my PC to run 100%. It always has to have some unique 'quirk'.

Well the choice is yours, you can keep scratching your head, or get busy.

Bootable Partition Manager| MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable Edition

That`s odd, I`m a Computer Technician and every PC I touch runs perfectly when I`m done with it, some of us have it, some of us don`t

Maybe you should open the window and see how far you can throw that ssd

But seriously, I would give 7 one more chance, you`ll be done in 15 minutes, and keep those Raptors unplugged for a few weeks.

Don`t install any updates either, not yet, they can wait, but do all your other usuals, turn off system restore, no page file, no hiber file.

Right... Might have found something:

Ran Defraggler, all the 6 red rows have the same file name '$BadClus:$Bad'

That's not what I was expecting to see.

Would running HDD Regen from a Hiren Boot CD likely resolve the issue or potentially cause more problems, in anyone's opinion?

If they are physically damaged clusters/sectors cells, whatever, they can not be repaired, but this is an ssd we`re talking about, but I know they can`t be repaired on a conventional hard drive, but at least you`re on to something.

Give it a try, it can`t hurt.

But you have a bad ssd not a bad hard drive.

Personally, I use Hard Disk Sentinel, It shows me the health and performance of every drive on my system, and if a drive has even 1 bad sector, or is not at 100% health and performance, it gets chucked.

TBH, I would have never thought of running HDD regen on a SSD; it's usually my go to utility for ANY HDD issue though.

I'll check out Sentinel next.

I personally would use Windows 7 built in defrag and then test the drive.
Some 3rd party defrag programs do strange things and cause strange problems.

Just my thoughts.
