Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

You did not specify what operating system you are using.

The next thing to ask is what program you have installed that is utilyzing that space.

I can not recommend any utilities or any further advice to you until post what operating system you have installed.

Kind regards.

Hiya! This is thu from facebook. The latest Windows XP Service Pack is Service Pack 3. Most tech resources recommend updating to SP3. To update go to http://update.microsoft.com and download the service pack there.

It also doesn't hurt to run a couple of online scanners:
* Bit Defender Online scan
* Norton Online scanning

You also mentioned on facebook you ran a malwarebyte's full scan. Does it detect ANY malware at all? How about your default antiVirus?

Do you have Norton products and is still within subscription? Then why not check if you can UPGRADE for free to the latest version! Visit http://www.norton.com/nuc.

FWIW: Running "c cleaner" won't be an effective remedy for a rootkit or any other malware item.
