    My C drive is full but cannot figure out why. I have discovered that something called Office Guardian V2 uses almost 4gigs of memory. It is composed of innumerable files identified by 15 digit labels. What is Office Guardian? Can I delete these files? Help please, need more memory. Thanks

    It may be a auto back-up program installed. Is it listed in the installed programs?
    If this is a auto back-up program, daily or hourly backing up your "files/folders/docs" you will eventually just fill up the hard drive. The files can be hard to find or sort though. I had a similar issue, eventually just backed up stuff I needed and reformatted.
    It also could be some malware.

    Cannot find it as an installed program. Found it using Windirstat to clean up drive. Ran a malware program already, as advised. When I try to open the files--string of numbers--get the dialog box asking what program to use to open. Thanks for your help.

    What happens if you use the Windows search feature, see if that gives you any ideas.
