If this is a fresh install run this chkdsk from dos prompt
[start, run, <open> CMD type in at the prompt chkdsk, follow instructions.after that it will read write to the disk sector at a time and will find any bad sectors by comparing.
After it is finished a report may show and bad sectors
Reboot and see if that helps.

Well you definately tried everything I would have sudgested.
It sounds like the Hard drive is near the end of its life.
If you have only just installed windows, it may be worth getting a new drive, installing your OS on that, you could then use the other drive as extra storage.
I have had a few HD that started to fail. Maybe the format and installation pushed it over the edge. You could always run maxtors drive check tool to see if it can detect a problem.( maxtor is now seagate)
