Hi,

I was referenced to this forum after finally clearing out some pesky malware, a root-kit which appeared to be slowly taking up space on my hard drive until i had only 70mbs left. After clearing out the malware, uninstalling the anti-malware programs, and now deleting all but the most recent restore points, I'm left with about 2gbs hard drive space left. I was hoping to have someone look through my current windows and other files to see if I can further eliminate any more unnecessary or irregular files to help give me more Hard Drive space and to improve my CPU's performance.

Using the WinDirStat program I developed the following log, which is current. Please take a look and let me know any recommendations you may have.

Here is a link to my Malware Forum Posts and Cleanup: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic478451.html

Thank you,

Bill

Not sure what you want to see, so I'll copy some over. My Documents, photos, music, files, etc are 40 Gb. I didn't include those items in this list. Below is break down of the results... If you'd like to see any of the other folders please let me know. "GCC" is my college.

You've focused on the wrong files.

The files in My Documents, etc...are the files that need to be either moved or removed, if the goal is to free up hard drive space on the C: partition.

Any intelligent look will verify that these files take up the greatest amount of space...and the reality is that these files are only on the C: partition because Microsoft thought it a great convenience to users when first devised. The individual files in the My Docs, My Photos, etc. can easily be moved to a different partition or stored on an external drive...and still be fully accessible to any user.

Sorry, but I believe you've misread my intentions.

I am well aware that I can free up hard drive space in My Docs, use an external hard drive, etc. I'm also aware of what 99% of those files are. Thus my question was not on My Docs, but on the rest of the C: drive. It might be my mistake, but after over 6 years of use and recent various malware problems I assumed that within the other areas of my C: (like the Windows folder) that within those other areas I might have accumulated unnecessary, irregular, or even just duplicate files which might have a slowing or negative effect on my CPU. Those are files I have 5% understanding of, and thought someone might take a look. This seemed to also be what the Malware Team here on Bleeping, thought I should do.

Re" C:\MSOCache files -
The MSO in MSOCache stands for MicroSoft Office.
It is a copy of the Microsoft Office's installation CD. It is there so that you don't have to insert the CD again if you have to perform repairs or add new features.
You can delete the folder according to M/soft, but, that same Microsoft Knowledge base article states:

Never delete the MSOCACHE folder by using Microsoft Windows Explorer.

After you remove the Msocache folder, you may have to provide the installation media to complete the Setup operations that are listed earlier.

They suggest using the They suggest using the Windows Disk Cleanup Wizard. I don't know why too, but you can access the Windows Disk Cleanup Wizard by following these steps:
1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup.
2. In the Select Drive dialog box, in the Drives list, click C:, and then click OK.
Note: If you have more than one hard disk, the Office setup files will be on the partition that had the most free space during Office Setup.
3. Wait for Disk Cleanup to finish checking the drive.
4. In the Files to Delete list, click to select the Office Setup Files check box, and then click OK.
Note: If the size of the Office Setup Files is zero, the Office Setup files are on another hard disk.
5. When you receive the following message, click Yes:
Are you sure you want to delete these files?

Yes to these - Should have been done in "Clean Up"

OK - I have posted a reply to what you "seemed" to call an important issue, so please reply ........................

44.9 GB C:\Documents and Settings\DerochaWS1
<< Is this a Second account or just Your Normal account ??
If it is a Second account it takes too much space so remove it -

Anything that looks like > > > =

All items with ( $ ) after them signifies a M/soft item - Leave them all alone -

2.0 KB C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt = Open AdwCleaner and hit Uninstall

Go - Programs > Accessories > Right click on Command Prompt (select Run as Admin) > Type chkdsk /r > Press ENTER, and agree to schedule a check > Now Reboot -
Let the Disk Check run the full 5 stages (will take over 1 hour), do not stop it or turn off the computer during the check -

Repeat the same as above, but this time type sfc /scannow (will not take as long, usually 15 to 20 mins)

Ok Thank you,

Sorry for the late response, i'm travelling for the holidays.

After monitoring the WinDirStat readout today vs the past post readout it appears my System Information folder is where my hard drive keeps adding additional information, up to 400+mb from 50Mb. I am assuming this is normal, but if it is not please let me know.

Otherwise, as my computer is running okay now, I will follow your instructions to clean up some of those files, and then start cleaning out my own My Docs. Thank you for the help. Please feel free to move on to other people in need.

Bill
