28GB bad sector show your hard disk is dying. There maybe data loss if you still keep on using. I suggest you back up your data and re format the computer and see if there is any problem with the hard disk when installing Window. Chances are you may need a new hard disk.

That's too much of Bad Sectors, Better you back it all up before it crashes, then you could try the various Hard disk fix utilities I think Tune up Utilities should do it. If it works good, else you can then re-format.

you are misreading the log .
28364 KB is just over 3.46 megabites ,not 28 gig's
you hdd should be fine giving its size, 300 gigs ,3meg is nothing
if when ran chkds and told it to fix errors it would have marked bad sector so as windows wouldn't write anything to the bad sector.

.chkdsk /p/f or maybe /p/r
