I'm not sure what happened but... today I downloaded from a P2P service. u_u Yeah, I know but I didn't think anything would happen as always. So the file itself was really big but I didn't install it at all, just extracted it. I was going to install it and block sites using my HOSTS File, etc but then I had to leave. So I turn off my computer for a few hours then come home to a message saying my hard drive has limited space. So I check it and I had about 2MB left on my 48.8GB hard drive which was weird since I'm sure I had upwards of 20 before I left? Don't quote me on it but I know there was a lot of room. So I delete the exe file that I downloaded to free up some space and managed to get 5GB of free space... but that's still not that much.

So I'm not sure if I'm infected with something that filled up my hard drive? Or... I'm not sure but I really just want to check and make sure nothing abnormal is going on.

Download WinDirStatPortable which will scan your dive and give you a picture of all your files. It willl show you what's taking all the space
