    I saw someone's post on here back from a year ago with a similar problem to what I am having, and you guys helped him so I'm hoping I will have a similar result!

    I have noticed that I am losing MB by the minute. I had 15GB of space about 2 weeks ago, and it was reduced to 1GB of space yesterday evening. As of now I only have 223MB. I have transferred everything important on an external drive and deleted everything else. I've tried SpySweeper, Ad-Aware, Spy Doctor, Norton, AVG, and Malwarebites. None of these solved the problem.

    If someone could get back to me as soon as possible with any help or advice I would greatly appreciate it, as I use my computer for work, and cannot work at all without enough space! :(
