Hi... I have a relatively new laptop (Dec. 2009). Running windows 7. It says I have next to nothing left for hard drive space, so what can I get rid of, or could I have a virus of some sort? I am currently without any virus protection other than what is included in the OS. There are some programs listed that I can't identify, so I don't want to delet them in case they are something I really need....any way to research them?

Well first i would look into making sure your machine is clean by doing the following:

I suggest that you Please post a Posted Image in the Am I infected? What do I do? sub-forum with a description of your problem, the steps taken so far, and a link back to this topic (they will want to know why you suspect malware).

Please note: the Malware Response team are always overwhelmed, and it could take a few days to get your first reply. Just be patient and don't "bump" your topic by replying to it.

If you still have problems after being declared clean, they'll send you back here.

Good luck. :huh:
If I have replied to a topic and you reply and I haven't gotten back to you within 48 hours (2 days) then send me a P.M.
