Boot-up problems and "Divide Overflow error"

I have 2 problems at start-up:
1.Scan disk running at start-up but no errors found, "because Windows was not properly shut down etc. etc...." even when it is.
2.Also, my hard disk is making an awful rasping noise on boot-up and freezing mid-boot which requires me to reset 2-3 times in order to boot -up.

The last time this happened I got the message: "Your program caused a divide overflow error". Any ideas?

I did run a trial version of McAfee virus scan recently which found and deleted a virus in my autoexec.bat but I am wondering if it did any lasting damage?

Grateful for any help.
