Well I registered here a long time ago but anyways here goes. Im pretty bummed right now. I keep getting a message that says i have low disk space and if i click the message i can free some space up. but right now oddly enough i have 6 mb left on my hard drive in which about a week ago i had like 26 gigs. Anyone know whats going on? I use this computer stricly for gaming, school stuff and airsoft. Do i have a virus? I have windows xp 64 bit version. I got a 80 gig hard drive for it a while back. I mean I dont see a reason for the memory to be so dang low. I cant even watch a video on youtube. Not only that but the space keeps going down. And its pissing me off. It might be a virus

Edit- Right now I am currently running ad-aware 2007, on a full system scan, as i usually do.

I need urgent help.

Hello Soheil Roshan

What specific program is giving you the message that says your low on disk space?

What type of anti-virus are you using? Have you tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"?

You need to start there first. If you don't have any anti-virus see BC's List of Virus & Malware Resources. In #4 there is a list of several free online anti-virus scans which you can perform. Ad-aware is not enough. I would also recommend that you download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free.

Have you cleaned out your temp files recently? If not, download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • If you use Firefox browser click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • If you use Opera browser click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled, to empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".
