I have an Acer Aspire 5736Z with a 250 GB hard drive and 3 GB RAM. My operating system is Windows 10 64 bit. I have Windows defender and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for protection. I've run both but have not been able to find anything. However, recently I have rapidly been losing hard drive space when connected to the internet,losing over 50GB, although I have not been downloading anything.
For example, until recently I had close to 90-100 GB still free. I got a low memory warning the other day and was surprised to find that my free space was down to about 15 GB, so I quickly removed 10 GB's of programs, etc. and did system clean It then showed that I had a little over 37 or 38 GB's free. Today when I turned on my computer i saw 38GB but now after working for only about an hour on the computer I have dropped to 31.8GB.
Basically, no matter how much I delete from my hard drive, it keeps filling up. I suspect malware, a virus, or rootkit, but have been unable to detect it with my security programs.
I would appreciate any help I can get from this forum.
Thanks in advance!
