Hello, hope someone can help me solve this issue.

  Recently I have experienced that my computer C drive has filled up by it self randomly, I have around 30GB free of space, but it will fill up bye itself till almost 100% and give me a warning that i have low disk space. I went in the C drive and check the usage of the folders in there, they were using the same amount of space as there still 30GB left. I couldn't located the space that is filled up. Sometimes the free spaces come back when I restart. I then use WinDirStat, I found out that the pagefile.sys and hiberfil.sys is using up the space.

  Also, the ram does the same thing, I have 16 gig ram, normally it wouldn't go more than 30% but now it would fill up to 99% and make everything freez, then crash the computer. this is all happening recently. There is two dllhost.exe running, and one of them use all the ram till it filled up, even if i closed it, it will come back again.

  It didn't ever happen to me until last week my friend has to do an online test from a bank, and that time I had to turn off my kaspersky to allow it to access. I turned kaspersky on immidetaly after she done the test, but a few days later, this problem appear. I am not sure if its virus or just hardware failure? I scan with malwarebytes and superantispyware also kaspersky and ESET online scanner they all found nothing.


Please if someone can give me some Idea i would be very thankful!
