    Hi for some reason all of a sudden my computer completly ran out of space. Before i had a little less than half free. I tried to delete some things and it would free up some space but the next day it would have nothing again. i dont know what it is im guessing a virus but i dont know how to deal with it.If someone can help me that would be great.


    thanks matt

    What is the total size of your disk, and what is your operating system?

    You can try running disk cleanup to free some space.

    I think it would be a good idea to download and run HijackThis and post the log file here for an expert to have a look at to see if you have any virus/malware in your system. Here is the URL:
    http://thespykiller.co.uk/files/hijackthis_sfx.exe
    Save it in a folder of its own and run it from the folder.

    I forgot to tell you not to fix anything until somebody takes a look at it and gives you the instructions.

    run spybot and adaware [gotten from links below-also see the tutorial links for their setup]. After that download and run Hijack This [link below] then follow the below instructions fully, and post the log in this thread, whereupon it'll be analysed by those-in-the-know here and then appropriate fixes will be suggested..

    follow the next instructions on posting the Hijack This log here;

    It’s very important that you save the log to its own permanent folder on your hard drive, such as Program Files/Hijack This, or My Documents/Hijack This, (NOT a temporary files folder) or you may loose the ability to undo any changes you make, so that Hijack This can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

    Close all open windows/and any open web browsers and then open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad. Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

    DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET;- Await further analysis here.
