Before I explain the issue I want to explain the circumstances of this post.
I was advised to post here when I asked my question in the chat, I do not personally believe this was a virus, but I will admit it could have been. I am posting in the past tense because the issue (the missing free space on C:\) has re-appeared. The reason I am posting at all is because I do not know why it re-appeared. If a moderator feels this post does not belong here, for whatever reason, please move or delete it. Although I would appreciate a message to inform me of the action if it is at all possible.

Now onto the issue.

I had been running low on space for a while, a few days ago I noticed I had 4mb of free space, even though I had not installed anything, I proceeded to delete some unnecessary things (some of the games I had not been playing, and such), the next day I tried visiting Youtube, Only to realize I had 0 bytes free space when video's refused to buffer. Once again I cleared some space. Things continued like this for another couple of days, until I remembered to run Ccleaner which amazingly cleared 30Gb. (Idiot me, I forgot the check what all it had removed to clear that much space.) I assumed the issue solved and moved on, However the next day, I once again had 0 bytes free.

I came to the conclusion that the hard drive was failing and ordered a new one today. The computer had 0 bytes free this-morning, I got on it tonight, and opened My Computer, to clear some space so I could use the computer, and discovered the C:\ drive has 80+ Gb free space.

The people in the chat seem to think this is a virus, I am not so sure. but.... it is certainly something I would like to be sure of before I have the order for my new hard drive canceled.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (v1.50) and save it to your desktop.
Download Link 1
Download Link 2Malwarebytes' may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet and double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    For instructions with screenshots, please refer to this Guide.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • Malwarebytes will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • Under the Scanner tab, make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • When finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box, then click the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked and then click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows the database version and your operating system.
  • Exit Malwarebytes' when done.
Note: If Malwarebytes' encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally will prevent Malwarebytes' from removing all the malware.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Please download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If it will not start, go to Start > All Prgrams > SUPERAntiSpyware and click on Alternate Start.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here. Double-click on the hyperlink for Download Installer and save SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to your desktop. Then double-click on SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to install the definitions.)
  • In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.
  • Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.
  • Click the "Scanning Control" tab, and under Scanner Options, make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program.
  • Do not run a scan just yet.
Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:
  • Launch the program and back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
    • Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
  • Click Close to exit the program.
If you have a problem downloading, installing or getting SAS to run, try downloading and using the SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner instead. Save the randomly named file (i.e. SAS_1710895.COM) to a usb drive or CD and transfer to the infected computer. Then double-click on it to launch and scan. The file is randomly named to help keep malware from blocking the scanner.

I ran your "Safe-mode" all I can tell it did was force me to choose the hard drive to boot from, and start without internet, nevertheless I am running the scan, A difference, when windows booted Microsoft Security Essentials, alerted me of 2 severe infections:

Exploit:Java/CVE-2010-0840.A
and
Exploit:Java/ByteVerify

Your scanner detected 114 tracking cookies, I will post the log in my next post, it wants me to reboot.

I'm not sure that Exploit:Java/CVE-2010-0840.A and Exploit:Java/ByteVerify are actual infections, rather I think they are potential vulnerabilities in an outdated version of Java.

What version of Java do you have?

How do I find out which version of Java I am using?

Hmm, Perhaps it was just a vulnerability, I may have mis-read it, it popped up as windows was restarting, so I didn't really have much time to read it.
I'm not certain what version I was running (the website did not say) but it updated me to version 6.23 (I know I was running some sub-version of 6)

That's good, you are now up to date. Let's try one more scan.

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Push the Start button.
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Push the Posted Image button.

There's no need for that, I own ESET, I can run a scan with it. I'll post the scan log as soon as it is finished.

I suppose I should have mentioned how I protect my system before now... I run ESET for real-time protection, and its network filtering, web access protection and email client protection, I have Microsoft Security Essentials, that I run once a week, and every time my computer starts as a second line of defense, I scan everything I download with Microsoft Security Essentials, and I use Unlocker to remove any files I suspect are infected but refuse to be altered. I use Mozilla firefox, with the adblock plus, to stop annoying pop-ups and protect myself from any malicious code that may have been injected into ads. (this is the reason as I mentioned before I didn't think it was a virus)

Before you tell me its a bad idea to run multiple virus scanners, I make sure that only one has real-time protection running, and they never run scans at the same time.

I'll admit it's a bit paranoid but... I have had Antivirus Pro 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010.

I'm afraid there were a great deal of lines in the log (so many that my browser crashes when I try posting them), without the (extra?) lines this is what is in it.

Scan Log
Version of virus signature database: 5841 (20110202)
Date: 2/2/2011 Time: 5:17:27 PM
Scanned disks, folders and files: Operating memory;C:\Boot sector;E:\Boot sector;F:\Boot sector;H:\Boot sector;C:\;E:\;F:\;H:\
Number of scanned objects: 494556
Number of threats found: 0
Time of completion: 6:20:51 PM Total scanning time: 3804 sec (01:03:24)

All of the lines I omitted are similar to:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys\5b4fba3b2d0573b4ec181c0c2f678726_4a3c9204-2fb6-42ed-8dd9-1dca83eeb7ed - error opening [4]
^^^ I have no idea what this is so..^^^

C:\Program Files\Audacity\audacity-1.2-help.htb ZIP audacity.hhp MIME - is OK (internal scanning not performed)
^^^ this line is near the top and is only repeated a few times.^^^

C:\Users\Bricyn\U_LUNIA_setup.exe NSIS SkillIcon.zip ZIP Dainn_Skill03.dds - error - password-protected file
^^^ 95% of the lines are similar to this one, all of them reporting this error, and as far as I can tell they all reference lunia (a free online game) ^^^

as I said before Lunia is a free online game, I played it for a short time. I have to run to the store, and won't be able to reply for a time.

Well I don't think you have a virus/malware on your computer.

Do you still have problems with hard drive space missing?

Not so far as I can tell, as I stated in the original post, the space returned while the computer was idle, I did not believe it to be a virus, but was told to post here by members of the chat. Sorry if I wasted your time.
