I tried burning some files to a 4.38 GB disc, but at 2.88 GB filled, a notification said I only had 60 MB left. I started over again, to make sure I wasn't mistaken, but the same problem occurred. I also noticed that under ''files waiting to be burned'', a file called something like desktopsettings.ini was there. Why would it be there? I may still have a virus, could this be the virus making sure I don't get anything off my computer cleanly? What explains this GB+ of unaccounted room being taken up? Windows 7 64bit system.

That certainly sound like a virus or other malware to me. The file "desktopsettings.ini" does not come up in a google search. Have you performed a full scan with both an antivirus program and a valid antimaleware program? I say valid antimalware because there are many malware programs that masquerade as antimalware.

That file was named ''desktop'' I think, because there are a few of them, only in sight after I used Unhide. Now these files were placed in other things, for example I created a folder called ''Audio'' for my audio books, and one was in there too. I even recall uploading a folder of books to a site, for backup, that may have had one in it. 

 

I've performed scans and such, MBAM, ESET, tdss.  I first came here to get rid of zero access but I'm very sure these rootkits and trojans are still here but I don't know what to do considering I don't know how a fix over the net will work when I'm so virused-out for so long anything good enough to stop this is obsolete.  So that's why I was trying to put some things on disc, so I could wipe my OS etc and start fresh.

What burning program are you using?

 

Give imgburn a try to see if the problem persists.  http://download.cnet.com/3028-2646_4-10847481.html?dlc=n&c=sem&s=sokrati&part=sokrati&pid=dlcom_sem&aid=EVUN366WYCGP0&gclid=CN_KhLXNjbYCFetFMgod3BoARw

I'm just using Windows Explorer I think, but will give this a try after dinner. Thank you.
