Bad sectors are physical damages to hard disk platters. You can not "remove" them, but operating systems can "mask" them (i.e. avoid storing data in bad sectors). To do that, you need to run chkdsk command in "fix" mode ( Run chkdsk /f in command prompt and then reboot system).

+1. Do checkdisk on each partition. "chkdsk /r /f"
 
yup, and most of the hard drives have some buffer(reserved) space which the os starts using to make up for bad sectors...U can use a floppy based program HDD Regenerator which is very good at masking off these physical bad sectors.
