Error Getting Bit Value for Record errors with ntfsck.

Hello, I'm using live system to do filesystem management. I have a dual boot to Windows and Linux, and I'm trying to add more disk space from an LVM partition to an NTFS partition. My disk system is currently set up like this:

/dev/sda: ~110 GiB.
/dev/sda1: 500 MiB ext4. Boot partition for windows
/dev/sda2: 111.27 GiB LVM2. Used for linux disk space.

/dev/sdb: ~750 GiB.
/dev/sdb1: 70.57 MiB FAT16. Used for some dell stuff.
/dev/sdb2: 20.00 GiB NTFS. Windows Recovery Partition.
/dev/sdb3: 272.88 GiB NTFS. This is the troublesome partition. It is my primary Windows Partition.
/dev/sdb4: Extended Partition
/dev/sdb6: The first part of /dev/sdb4, 100 GiB. LVM. Used for linux disk space.
/dev/sdb5: The second part of /dev/sdb4, 300 GiB. LVM. Used for linux disk space.

I decided that I would fsck my NTFS partitions before I resized the filesystems, then the partitions.

When I fsck'd (and ntfsck'd) /deb/sdb3, many errors along the lines of "Error Getting Bit Value for Record" pop up. I don't know of a way to fix these. I don't want to go ahead and resize my filesystem with the same tools (ntfsprogs) that are returning errors fsck-ing a perfectly good filesystem. I know the filesystem works and is error free is because on Windows there are no problems and chkdsk does not return any errors. Also, I am able to mount the system. This works:

[root@localhost liveuser]# mount /dev/sdb3 /media/OS
[root@localhost liveuser]# ls /media/OS/

Is there any way to fix this error? Why is it doing this?
