Hi I hope someone can help me.  I continue getting a low disc warning.  In the past I could run MS Security Essentials and it would locate the virus and remove it.  I have tried running it but it doesn't find anything.  I have tried looking in the folder where they used to be found, and couldn't find anything.  I clear disc space, and delete files and still get the warning and 0 bytes on C:.  When I unplug the internet, I dont get the warning and the disc space is normal.  I have deleted about 2GB of files so far and dont want to delete more if not necessary. I can't access the internet because the pages wont fully load.  I have to continue going to Task Manager and end process on several dllhost.exe*32 that are running.  I dont know what to do.  Any thoughts.  Help is greatly appreciated. My machine is about 4 years old and is Windows Vista64  I have also tried running malwarebytes and it finds nothing.
