Get the hard drive diag from the maker of the hard drive and run them. You may be able to view the s.m.a.r.t readings also from windows but the drive diags are the best way to see if the drive is bad or not.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

create a image from your system, and store it safely,
having a system image means you will be able to restore your full system very quickly with no issues.
start looking for a new drive.looking for a new hard drive now will save you stress when it finally fails. it may only be a damaged sector, in which case you could create 2 partition and create an identical win 7 installation on the second partition from the image, so if the damage starts to cause issue you can boot into the second installation.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....
