    Hi!

    Recently I have noticed that my disk space on my partition where my OS is stored is disappearing. I've tried to restore XP to a previous state (from a week before) but that did not help at all. I tried Combo Fix but it couldn't download the console that my Windows does not have. My anti virus is from Avast (with an up to date virus dbs) and I also use Spyware Doctor - that has detected a number of bugs a other -wares but after removing them again nothing changed.

    This is my HijackThis log:

    Oh and BTW - in case you didn't notice I'm a pure amateur when it comes to IT so if anyone has got any ideas please keep the language simple if you don't mind.

    Cheers,

    Matt.
