Windows detected a hard disk problem

#1
Hello everyone,
I was using my Acer Aspire laptop and suddenly I got a pop up message telling me that Windows detected a hard disk problem (and I keep having this message like every 20 min).

The HDD was working just fine and still works good, but I just get that message.
I also checked the disk for errors but is says that the disk has no errors.

It sounds like a Virus/Malware/Spyware popup. Run Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, Superantispyware and then run your AV to check the system for malicious software.

Agreed however if that doesn't fix it then please post a screenshot of the error (pop up) so we can see it.

To be clear, assume virus/ juck adds, first.

Probably, a virus tries to enter fully in your PC.
