    Alright I am running windows 2000 pro and the other day I went and tried to get into my bearshare and it said that all of my space was gone to download so I went into my computer and checked and there was nothing left on my hard drive not a single byte but about 2 days before it had 7 gigs
    SO I was like OK went and deleted a lot of songs came back an hour later all the freespace I had cleared was taken up I run adaware no spyware run registry cleaner no problems I have no clue what could be wrong. any help would be appreciated, I am at a loss to why this happened

    Alright I am not talking about that program I am talking about why my computer is having stuff put on harddrive with out me doing anything. such as I clear my zip folder come back in an hour and I have no free space on my computer like somehting is being put on my comp or something I have no idea this does not relate to and p2p programs I wanted to know if its virus or spyware or what the hell it could be

    If you run P2P applications, you can expect such problems. You are sharing your system with god knows who.

    Remove bearshare and any other P2P, scan with an up to date AV program, Adaware, Spybot and see if that helps.

    Or post a HiJackThis log, once all P2P has gone.

    it is 99% sure to be a virus/trojan that you got while downloading via P2P

    The advice given was the advice that any of us would have given so if you don't like it then go elsewhere
