Have you been clearing history files,cache,auto forms etc on a regular basis. What setting do you have for cookies? Do you use disk cleanup? defrag? What size is you hdd?How much free space? What Os are you using?
I know this seems like a lot of questions but it can save alot of time posting back/forth.

You need to uncheck Hide Protected Operating System files to see that folder.

The Complete folder is not a part of the XP OS, it was put there by a 3rd party prog(malware) - this happened to my fathers PC, in that case it was full (10s of 1000's) of movie titles, each with a trojan, and a file called movie.exe.

Deleting the folder and similar folders located elsewhere cleared 30gb of space.

So ended his short-lived use of p2p!
