I use windows XP. I have two hard drives. My "d" is 40 GB and my "c" is 15 GB.
I rarely ever put programs in "c". Everything goes into "d". It says in "my computer" that I only have 742 MB of remaining space in "c". I don't know how that is possible since I only used 1 GB worth of memory in "program files". That means that nearly 14 GB of memory are being used in "WINDOWS" and "documents and settings".
Also, when I highlight all the programs in "c", it says I have used up only 12 GB (which is still way too much). So I don't know why that occurs either.
Anyway, i have a theory that maybe I have a virus on my computer that keeps multiplying itself on my computer, which is taking up all my memory.
The other option is that I have useless files in "WINDOWS" and in "docs and settings". The only problem is that I may delete an important file (which I have probably already done since my computer is crashing and malfunctioning all the time).
Is there a way to know, which files are junk, viruses, and important ones??
