diskchk runs on its own if you dont shut down the computer properly, make sure to shut down properly so the HDD doesnt act up.

So currently you just hit the power button off whenever you feel like it? If so thats what is causing the problem. I would doubt your OC did that. Possible but not likely.

There is no difference between logging off then shutting down or just shutting down for your purposes. What I suggest is running GSmartControl to see if the drive is failing. Once you finish that and are sure the drive is in proper working order do the following.

Open up an Elevated Command Prompt (re: Run As Administrator), type in sfc /scannow, then hit enter. This should take about 10 to 20 minutes depending on what it finds. After that finishes open up another Elevated Command Prompt and type in chkdsk /r and hit enter. You will be prompted that it can't run now and do you want to run it the next time the system boots. Type in Y, hit enter, then reboot the computer and let it run. Depending on the size of the OS partition and how many problems it finds and needs to fix this could take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour or more as it is very thorough.
