Hey.. i think i'm infected with a virus, trojan..etc, My C HARD DRIVE keeps going to zero and i keep deleting files to make some space, but it still goes back to zero.. it decreases slowly by every minute!

I had about like 5gb left on my C drive out of 195gb, i went to sleep, woke up and there was 0 space left, i scanned my C with avast, and it found a virus in temporary files, "C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\Temp\AutoRunPro0\Parche\replace.exe" (i think it had the same icon as avast), it said it deleted it but really didn't but i found a way to delete it, i also installed Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and found nothing.. also installed CCleaner it deleted the temporary files, and i got 2.5 space, and i deleted more stuff now i got 17gb free, its decreasing now its 16.3gb while im typing!! I have no solution till now.. please replay ASAP! :D thank you!!
===========================================================
I FOUND THE SOLUTION.. it was a .LOG FILE.. it was increasing every second.. it was about 38GB when i figured it out!!!
it was for a program called DVB Link.. i uninstalled the program, restarted and deleted the 38GB LOG FILE!!!
now nothing decreases and i got lots of space back! so it was NOT a virus, trojan..etc, just a LOG FILE!!!! :D
