      Try to format your hard disk. Before you do that you must back up all your files. However, formatting might not clear bad sectors from your hard disk.

      Best recommendation would still be to replace the hard disk.

      There might be some software that you can perhaps block out bad sectors so that these sectors would not be used. However, note that bad sectors would spread.

      Try running scan disk and see if you can repair the sectors before reformatting,if not backup and reformat by using FDISK.

      Use ScanDisk, select through mode it will attempt to correct the bad sectors if it starts marking too many bad, Purchase a new hard drive.
