    Hi there people i'm not sure if i have posted this in the right place as i have run numerous scans & got rid of viruses & malware. My problem started about a week ago. My comp was running fine then the next day i switched it on like normal but ever since then everything has been running slow & Hard Drive space is vanishing into thin air. I have read things about shadow storage taking up space but i reduced my limit ages ago & have now turned off system restore so that's not it. Its weird if i click on start them computer on the computer page i will right click then refresh & 100mb will go or if i leave it a couple of minutes then do the same thing 500 mb could be gone. I really dont understand what is going on & really need help to fix it as i cannot do anything in normal mode i have to do everything in safe mode including all scans. Up to now i have run various virus scans including Norton, Avira & Bit defender (only one software was on my comp at any one time) & removed some viruses, i've also ran Super Anti Spyware & Malwarebytes AntiMalware & removed stuff. But still i have this problem. By the way my operating system is Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit service pack 2. Thanx in advance & hope someone can help me.
