    hi jb.....did symantec finish the scan?
    if so what was the name of the virus,as there are quite a few with this same aspect of filling up the drive.
    if not,you could try the online scan at housecall.
    http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

    or download avg antivirus.
    www.grisoft.com
    and run a full system scan....both avg and housecall should detect and remove the virus.
    let us know.
    good luck;)

    yes,avg is totally free,there is a pay for version but the a/v protection is the same.best thing is to download/install and check for updates to be sure of the latest definitions.
    if you need any more help...dont hesitate to ask.;)
