It all boils down to opinion and experience of course but I have to say I do not know any system builders or techs in any of my groups who don't recommend only WD for hard drive use.

Try running chkdsk by opening the command prompt and entering this chkdsk /f /r C: and Windows will run it when the computer restarts and try to repair the drive.
