Yesterday I found that some malware called Antivirus Monitor had somehow got into my machine despite using AVG. It's one of those things which pretends your pc is infected etc, while it is the thing causing the problem. As I had everything backed up I thought I'd save myself the hassle of trying to remove it manually (malwarebytes and AVG were both compromised at this point) as it could be anywhere, and decided to just restore my computer to factory settings. I have had to do this previously and it seems this model uses a partition (?). Anyway despite this, and having very few programmes installed (I'm reinstalling only what I really use now) my system which is 65GB shows only 3gb of free space. I have used Disk Cleanup also.
Is this a false reading or is my system really this full despite there being so little on it now?
I'm using a Compaq Presario (300 series I think) with 65GB memory, and just under 1GB Ram.
Any ideas how to sort this out? When I go into defrag it also shows the system as full.
Thanks in advance.
