hello eveyone
this is my first time using this website , in advance sorry for any trouble or missuse
i have dell inspiron 1525 laptop and 2 days ago i noticed something suspcious:
when i usually open my computer folder, i find that i have 2 hard disks one called OS © and another called recovery (D) and mediadirect
2 days ago, i open the computer folder and i found the usuall OS© and RECOVERY (D) and another drive called OS(f) ?!!!and the new F drive has a red bar saying 317Kb left out of 2.49GB!!!. i tried to reofrmat the new F or delete it but i couldn't. Mcafee did detect a trojan horse at that time but it said that it blocked it soo. i want to restore the pc to factory image but it wouldn't let me ( because the f drive cannot be formatted for some reason). instead of reformatting , i tried to free some space beacuse a message keeps on poping saying i have low disk space on drive f but no matter what i do, it keeps on poping. the pc is slower now and a few minutes ago it shut down and i waited for 30 minutes for it to work again
