My son's laptop was constantly running out of disk space. I found a hidden folder:
program data\AOL\AOLDiags|win32|servicehostUSGM|15.2.1.2| with several hundred *.pak files. the total size of the directory starting at AOL folder was 24.6 GB. I deleted the folder and subfolders and ran several antispyware programs. The folders came back and in two days we had 25 MB of *.pak files again.

I will be uploading the HiJackThis log.

Please help me clean up my son's laptop. He uses limewire to download music all the time. I told his he should not use this program but he insists all his friends use it. Is there a recommended program I can run to help keep my son's laptop clean. We do use McAfee Virus protection. I was not using any antispyware before.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
