    No problem, it is what most of us try to do daily :)

    But I would like to know about the USB network adapter I saw in msinfo32, because my experience with them is that they can cause a lot of trouble if they do not meet certain requirements
    • up to date drivers which are compatible with Windows 10,
    • possible software that is up to date and compatible,
    • connected in working USB port

    Was your USB network adapter connected when you reinstalled Windows?

    I can't fully remember, but it's certainly possible that it was plugged in during the installation. I made sure to get the latest drivers from the TP-Link website, however it does only say supports up to Windows 8.

    Not a big problem that the drivers are till Windows 8, sometimes older drivers still work proper enough :)

    USB network adapters are very useful, but many bluescreen analysts will say that you need to remove it for the time of troubleshooting. Usually someone can use it again after troubleshooting as long as the drivers and software are up to date and compatible with installed operating system.

    This is only a warning that you need to prepare yourself for problems, because of the drivers and OS compatibility.

    Chkdsk is a filesystem repair tool. A bad sector is physical damage/wear on the platter of the harddrive. You cannot fix a reallocated/bad sector with any software. You can only tell the filesystem to skip that sector (if using linux).

    Formatting the drive will not help unless you can perfectly align your partitions to not fall on the bad sector(s).

    Replace your hard drive as soon as you can. Your error rates and bad sectors indicate an impending failure will occur. How soon is anybody's guess.

    You have a recently failed sector as well. You also have ran out of spare sectors (typically 63 spares in an HDD). From this point forward ny failing sectors can and likely will cause full filesystem corruption.

    Overheating HDDs are the primary cause of failing sectors, followed by physical shock, and normal wear and tear.
