I have an older computer, a Toshiba Satellite A215, 32-bit, 2.0 GB RAM, running Vista home premium service pack 2.
I loaned the computer to a former student for a semester and when I got it back it had some viruses. After running antivirus programs it seemed to be fine for a while.
Recently I noticed that my memory was filling up quickly. I backed up all my data and began deleting things I didn't need, but as soon as I clear up some space it disappeared again within a couple of hours.
I have run multiple anti malware/virus programs including MalwareBytes and AVG both show that there are no viruses or malware currently on my computer. I have emptied my recycle bin, run disk cleanup, and run CCleaner.
I have been unable to determine what is taking up memory and am currently down to 990 MB of free memory (of 296 GB capacity) and have nothing left to delete.
