Hardware Configuration: HP Compaq 6510b, Intel Centrino, 1 GB Ram, 80 GB HDD, DVD Rom
Software Configuration: Windows Vista, MS Office, MCafee AV (corporate version, says its updated), no other spyware/malware/virus removal tools, no P2P application installed for downloading etc, no download manager, no toolbar
Symptoms: General slowness (getting worse), browsing timeouts, 80 GB HDD getting full again and again.
I deleted 300 Megs from C: drive, within minutes I got a notification stating I had 0 KB available. I deleted another 200 MB, same notification, this kept happening for about 5-6 times.
Remedial action attempted:
Virus scan with Mcafee, nothing found.
Attempted to install MBAM and SAS but those did not install stating no space available on HDD
Attempted to run Housecall online scan but that did not complete as it tries to download some malware data to the computer stating no space available on HDD
Downloaded cleanautorun.exe and tried to run it but its not allowed to run with a message stating its not a valid Win32 app.
Tried logging into safe mode to run it or install MBAM, but the load gets stuck at crctest.sys ( I think).
Cant think of anything else I can do so HELP !!!
