    My C: drive (system) fills up with little or no use. I clear it out to about 1 gb free space, but it seems to gain back 150-200 mb of 'whatever' at each startup. I went through a discussion of this a few days ago in the XP forum; am now following advice from users there to come to this forum and post HJT logs.

    C: drive is 15 gb nominal, 13.9 gb actual capacity

    What I've done so far: Repeatedly scanned w/ AVG and Spybot 1.5.2, moved personal files to D, moved temp internet files folders to D, deleted all but most recent restore point, deleted programs and/or moved them to D (except those that default install to C), and completed disc cleanup. Can't defrag w/out more available memeory.

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    (I removed preivously posted HJT logs because I've had to continually remove items from C drive just to keep computer running as I run down to less than 100 mb of free space and system becomes unstable. Can post current logs immediately when someone responds and is willing to help out. Thanks.)
