Just a few weeks ago, I started noticing my computer was slower and slower and responding on programs, which I found rather weird, as I've only downloaded some movies the last entire month (Porn not included.) - But there, a virus might have slipped in.. I am not sure though, as Malwarebytes, Adwcleaner and CCleaner haven't really affected anything. (Yeah, I know CCleaner just cleans up, but it hasn't decreased the sudden increase in HD space taken)

 

 

As you can see.. The black line shows how much space was left, just a few weeks ago.

Go to file and folder options. Go to View. Check to view hidden files, operating system files and empty file folders. See if there are any other files.

I've barely got any hidden files.

 

Scanned again yesterday, full scan with Malwarebytes, nothing changed, nothing infected.

CCleaner got rid of some temp files and other unnecessary stuff, I removed some maps and files I didn't need.. It still keeps taking up space.
