Hello. My name is Michael. I can help you with your question.
This sounds like a bigger problem than just the hard drive. It is a typical symptom of malware. What I would suggest doing is going to malwayrebytes.org, downloading the free software, and running a full scan. Have it remove what it finds, and then run the scan again. Run the scan until it doesn't find anything, then reboot and test again.
