Windows 7: Out of my depth.

Out of my depth.

I am having a few problems with my computer running Windows 7 64bit.
It has run faultlessly for 2 months, then yesterday it booted to the Windows logo and would go no further, so I restarted and it gave me the option to do a repair which I accepted, it then said it had failed and did I want to do a restore, which I did then it asked me to reboot and it worked OK.
Today I switched it on and it started doing a disk check ( I am sure it said it was the D drive, as the OS is on the C drive).(There are two separate 250GB hard drives in this computer).
Going through the check this is what turned up,
Repairing the unreadable security descriptors data stream,
Insufficient disk space to to fix security descriptors data stream,
Repairing the security file record segment,

Then it goes on to Usn journal verification completed,
Then correcting errors in the uppercase file.

It has now been on the uppercase file correction for over an hour.
Can anyone give me any idea what is happening, as I am out of my comfort zone.

Which ever drive doesnt have enough space to repair itself. I suggest eliminating un-necessary files and program to free up space.

The D drive has 190GB's of free space.
Someone on another forum suggested disconnecting the D drive and try booting it up with only the C drive connected, and it booted straight into windows with no problems, so when I have time I will put the D drive in a caddy and run a diagnostic on it.
