can't login/slow performance

pavilion all in one 23-q112
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

super anti spyware found trojan and cleaned it...very slow performance and now can't login...freezes at login in, endless welcome loop. performed diagnostics and got the following error: hardware test failure - hard drive short dst check failed - rgd7wk-7t79ge-gxpsmf-60r503. Tried windows reset and got in but now stuck at login screen again. Do I need to replace HD or is this a virus issue?
