Messages received loud and clear. As stated in my original post, having read the instructions for Combofix, I immediately registered on this site for advice and assistance.
Please remember, I am not formally trained but have better than average experience. Bearing this in mind, some things will not be immediately obvious to me, where they are to you good people. However, I am smart enough to provide detailed information and to ask for your help.
All comments gratefully eceived.
One thing is clear, I need to do some basic house cleaning first. Thanks to noknojon, hamluis and Ken-In-West-Seattle.
I would ask of you all to comment on the fact that the Defrag report shows the files described in the seriously fragmented sizes.
This machine has previously been very very well maintained. Last week I defragged it 3 times, and as suggested by you good folk, it took moments.
Concurrent events which may or may not have any bearing this last week, CPUID software added, ISP changed, AVG issues occurred but virus scans are regular and thorough. And the case has been operating on it's side for a couple of weeks, it is a very recently upgraded machine, the old motherboard having been transferred from a micro ATX case to a 6 fan Thermaltake mid tower, brand new Thermal Take Evo Blue 550w power supply, brand new RAM modules (2x 1Gb 400DDR), a new Cuda 250Gb hard drive in addition to the 5 year old now problematic Cuda 80Gb drive, a 1TB WD USB 2.0 external drive plus, a brand new Radeon 4650 8x AGP card with 1 Gb ram.
Mother board is a Gigabyte 775 socket, running a P4 provessor with standard cooling fan. Since upgrading, thi has been running well within voltages, temperature and fan speed specs. But CPU has been stuck at 100% regularly.
I tried to list this info in my profile, but figure this may be useful here.
So, will remove unwanted programmes by proper means to make space, then defrag. But the burning question is what are those two files Windows\system32\jcsb.new at 56GB and Windows\system32\jcsb.DAT at 312MB that have suddenly arrived, and what caused my hard drive to explode into these fragments over the short time it has operated this week.
