So my computer is maxed out on space and I didn't do it. I don't fully utilize my computer, so there's no reason for this.

I downloaded TreeSize and I found a file called C:\windows\security\POL\POL.009. It's worth almost 39 gigs, and when I look for it under the regular file/computer navigation screen there's no file. What kind of file is this and what should I do with it? It's using up more and more space every day and my antivirus isn't detecting it.

Which version of Windows are you using ? Home/Professional/Business; Vista, XP or Win 7?

I don't see a POL folder within \Windows\security in my Vista Business nor XP Home.
