Without a doubt, I would do a fresh install, you should have backed up your data.

You could try a repair from your disks, if you made them or from the preinstalled recovery option. The drivers will be installed automatically

Google Chrome has slowed down on me before too. I uninstalled it with wise program uninstaller and re download and install. So far works fine again, make sure to check for an update for it at least once a week.

Have you tested the hard drive?

Your primary concern should be the inability to do a System Restore. Were there any complete error messages other than "due to some I/O device error"? More info would help. Also look in Event Viewer to see if there is a better description at the time of the attempted restore.

You might also do a re-install "in-place'", that is install the OS over itself, not formatting. That will replace the OS and if you have corrupted files 'fix' them, but so should running SFC /SCANNOW? Have you tried running SFC and if so, what were the results?

Depending on the I/O error you could be experiencing a h/w problem on the disk, a bad sector that holds a file needed for Restore or the data itself. Are ALL restore points giving the same problem? Have you run CHKDSK /F on the drive?
