    The HD is almost full and I can't figure out what is doing it. No games, videos, a handful of pictures, just E-mail and general web browsing. Can't fragment or do system restore, not enough space (that's what it said). 4.84 GB free out of 134 GB. Can't find a virus or malware either.
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks!

    Run this program -- http://www.jam-software.com/treesize_free/

    It will tell you exactly what is taking up the space.

    Are you using an external hard drive with a program that creates backups on a schedule?
