how much ram do you have and what are sizes of windows ,program files and documents and settings folders.post its sizes also so that i can help


It could be the working of a worm or a virus. Just uncheck on the "Hide operating system files and folders" and then you might see the files which are occupying the files. Also make sure that you are having many incomplete downloads in the download managers. They can sometimes cause this problem too.


i have 2 gigs of RAM.
ive moved my docs to another drive coz lots of docs.
im using AVAST antivirus, it didnt detect any virus.
Ive cleaned up all restore points.
and i install all the apps to another drive only a few are in My OS drive i.e C drive.

program files - 2.7 GB
Windows -4.83GB
docs n settings -1.43GB

use some diskspace analyzing software(isnt there?) to find what files are using out hdd space in ur "window$" directory.

well,making ur window$ XP C:\> partn of 4.7 GB :D and installing all softwares manually to D:\> directory may help.yes,if u consider ever any reinstall :)

I was also thinking the same thats y i asked u the ram size. btw your docs and settings folder is having too many temporary files under its subdirectories. so delete those temp files
