I am running Malwarebytes and Avira. My firewall is Comodo firewall. I was running avast, but that cause BOSD's so I removed it. I've tried running chkdsk but it freezes on me (last time I left it running for 48 hours and it was still on the same command line).
When chkdsk freezes, do you hear a clicking noise coming from the hard drive? Put your ear close to the hard drive and listen for that noise.
I don't recall hearing any clicking, but I will run it again and check.

If you don't, be sure to put your ear close to the location of the hard drive.
