it says my hard drive is too full~low disk space but I can't take off any of these programs! I loaded combofix but it gave me an error message, not an administrator when I'm the only one using my pc, then it loaded the program but wouldn't finish (smerga or something = unknown command) I'm going to pull an "Office Space" hammer out of the closet to FIX it in a minute!!! HELP, please!

Clueless Techie Newb!!

Hi entlvr35, and welcome to bleepingComputer,

Why were you trying to use Combofix?

ComboFix logs should not to be posted outside the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum. It is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained. ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.

It would help if you would post the make and model of this computer.

There are a couple of things that you can do. One would be to put some of the data that you don't use on a regular basis on removable media, like CDs or DVDs. The most practical one would be to purchase a second hdd.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Clearing out the system restore points can recover a considerable amount of disk space

Click Start, point to All Programs | Accessories | System Tools and click Disk Cleanup.
Click OK.
From the Disk Cleanup dialog box, click the More Options tab.
Click Yes to confirm your actions.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Also I did this but the programs taking up all the space "hide" or I can't even get rid of them with remove programs and specifically targeting them...
