Melissa- I have done all the things mentioned in your very well written post. I'm having a problem with something using up my space in my windows 7 computer. I have the a a vipre antivirus software and a 64 bit laptop computer. I've only had it a year. It has 250 G and only 6 G left not used. I have hardly any downloads on it. I have gone through the c drive looking for what is eating up the space & am unable to find what it is. Do the updates from microsoft use up that much space? I have done all the analyzing & defragging. I only have 1 game- scrabble which I purchased. I do very little on this computer other than word documents. Do you have any ideas? Thanks for your help

prpllotus: I have used Vipre and let me tell you - the worst AV I have ever used.

To your problem: Enter dos prompt. click run-- "cmd". I would try a "chkdsk /f" - it will ask to reboot, push y. Exit dos prompt and reboot your machine then it will perform a check on your hdd. It will most likely take a little longer than a normal error check.
