    Yup, Adw came back clean. Re-ran it this morning and same result. laptop seems to be running ok which is great.

    I am still perplexed by the loss of hard disk space. Deleting temp files and defragging freed up around 3-4gb but still can't explain how my hard drive went down from 140gb of free space to 95gb today.

    Is there anything else you recommend doing?

    Good news.
    You can use WinDirStat to find out what is using your HD space.
    It's here: https://windirstat.net/

    You should be all set.
    When you are satisfied with results, you can click "Mark Complete" at the to of the thread.
    Let me know for any additional questions.

    Thanks for your help, will mark as solved. One final question, is there any way of editing the 2nd post as within the scan results, there are some document filenames that might end up showing up in google results.

    I can see that i can edit recent post but not the early ones?
