Is my hard drive going bad?

I recently got errors on my PC. 1. Discover drop and play system error 2. Generic host process for win32 services error. One of these 2 makes it so I can't open new programs (like the internet), can't run windows update, etc. I reformatted my PC and reinstalled windows and still come up with the... show more I recently got errors on my PC.

1. Discover drop and play system error
2. Generic host process for win32 services error.

One of these 2 makes it so I can't open new programs (like the internet), can't run windows update, etc.

I reformatted my PC and reinstalled windows and still come up with the same errors (even before installing anything new). I uninstalled Discover drop and play and reinstalled through HP program recovery and automatically come up with the same error.

I ran a Hard Drive test it I get this:

Random Seek Test: Internal Error
Funnel Seek Test: Internal Error
Surface Scan Test: Internal Error
Surface Scan Test 2: Internal Error

I am guessing my hard drive is going bad/is bad and corrupting files? Any help is appreciated!
