When I opened my pc today, I couldn't run anything. Everytime I try to open a file I get the error : The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. I looked everywhere online, ran the chkdsk command but nothing seems to repair the problem. I wanted to format my drive but I am unable to because I can't install any recovery program. I'm usually pretty good at solving computer problems but im at a total loss right now. Thank you for any help.

Everything points to an actual hard drive failure of some kind, or else a very nasty infection.

If Windows 10 boots the probability of hard drive failure is small.

If you want to do a "nuke and pave" (that is, a completely clean reinstall of Windows 10) you should try one of these two sets of instructions:

Doing a Completely Clean (Re)install of Windows 10 Using Media Creation Tool to Fetch the Win10 ISO File

Doing a Completely Clean (Re)install of Windows 10 Using Media Creation Tool to Create Bootable Win10 Install Media on a USB Thumb Drive

If the part of the instructions that involve diskpart fail, then consider your HDD/SSD dead and get another one.

If, instead, you suspect an infection then open a topic in the Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help forum requesting assistance.
