The program may well have been run not as a command line program but using
the Windows interface. In that case, which check boxes were checked?
We know that the program did do something because the computer was
rebooted. If you run chkdsk on a computer and are checking the drive used
by the operating system, the computer must reboot before it runs and the message
spoke of rebooting.

thinking that simply running CHKDSK does not correct any errors. One must
add the appropriate command line options to make the program do

I don’t know what leads you to believe that the hard drive has
errors. If you repeatedly run check Disk and you still have problems
possibly attributable to the hard drive, then the drive may not be
reliable. Check Disk corrects the errors it can and if it can, it moves
data out of bad sectors to good ones. Ongoing hard drive errors suggests
continuing degredation of the hard drive.
But not knowing what problems you have had in the past, I wouldn’t assume
the hard drive is the problem. Memory problems can cause
corruption. Perhaps other things I am not aware of.

I know this desktop is pretty old; in fact it was a
refurb when I got it a couple years back and I feel like the hard drive has
always had some errors. But when I sent out an email a few minutes ago there
was a message referring to a possible corrupt database. I know there's check
disk and sfc /scannow, but when you restart to run check disk it doesn't tell
you what it found when the computer starts after the check. I'm using windows
7 and jaws 2019. Is there a good and thorough hard drive checker that gives
the results so you can hear the results using jaws? I know some of these are
graphical and unclear as far as showing results, so I hope there's a good one
available so I can see what's possibly wrong.
