    bad sectors means that the hard disk is failing

    the bad sectors will continue to grow and ultimately the PC wont boot

    So best is to buy a new hard disk and transfer all your data to it

    Well, first of all, a hard drive with bad sectors is dying. You should replace it ASAP. Meanwhile, run chkdsk /f /r from your command prompt to block the bad sectors.
