Hard drive nearly full for no apparent reason
Running XP on an HP Pavilion ze2000 with a 60 gig HD. Several months back my HD nearly filled up on its own. I've spent hours reading and researching potential causes but to no avail. I've tried turning off System Restore then turned it back on, but nothing there. My Windows directory and sub-directories shows that there are 50 GB used in it alone, but my limited knowledge prevents me from finding the specifics regarding where all this data is and why it was placed there.

My machine runs very slow. Please help!

Hi and welcome. When you turned system restore off, did you reboot?

Go to the malware removal forum, read the first thread there, follow the instructions on how to download, install, run and post a hijack this log. Post the log BACK TO THIS THREAD though.

I don't see anything other than viewpoint could be uninstalled, and your start up list is a little large. I'll see if I can have a log expert give a second opinion.

There are some policies that are usually set by SpyBot Search & Destroy but I don't see that program installed. And yes, Viewpoint and an older version of Java.

Let's just take a look at a couple of other things.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware form Here or Here

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the entire report in your next reply along with a new HijackThis log please.

Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process,if asked to restart the computer,please do so immediatly.
Also, if you receive an (Error Loading) error on reboot please reboot a second time . It is normal for this error to occur once and does not need to be reported unless it returns on future reboots.



Also, please do this:

Open HijackThis and click on "Config" and then on the "Misc Tools" button. If you're viewing HijackThis from the Main Menu then click on "Open the Misc Tools Section". Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button. Click the "Save List" button. Copy and paste that list here please.

It could be updates continually failing to install. How much space is used by the C:\Windows\Installer folder?

I HAVE had updates continually failing to install and my hard disk began filling up around that time!! I don't find a c:\Windows\Installer folder, but there are approximately 190 subfolders in the Windows directory that begin with $NtUninstallKB######$. I think you're onto something here!

I don't think the $NtUninstallKB######$ files are the problem, so leave them alone for now. They are uninstall folders for updates that did install properly.

C:\Windows\Installer" is a hidden folder. Open My Computer and click the Tools button, then Folder options, then the View tab. Tick the button next to "Show hidden files and folders" then Apply. You should then be able to see the C:\Windows\Installer" folder.

If you right click on it then click Properties, does it show that is what is using most of your drive space?

If so, look to see if there are multiple .MSP files with random names... but with the exact same file size and date. If found, select the file, right click, and then click "Summary". The title line should show what the patch file is for.

Let us know what you find.

The "Show Hidden Files and Folders" box IS checked yet the C:\Windows\Installer folder is not being displayed in the Wosubfolder list. I know there is such a folder because while I was running the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware program I noticed the directory.

What now?

Please post the results of the scan with MalwareBytes as well. We can troubleshoot together.

Thanks, Cookiegal. It's still running. It is taking a long time to get through those *.msp files. I'll post the results when it's finished. Should I have run the less thorough scan?
