Have an older Vista box that is used on once in a while.  Went to use the box and it ran out of disk space and suspect a virus.  Have removed some unused programs and files only the disk space continues to run out.  Then will do the same until it runs out of space again.  Can you recommend a program that would help to correct this.  It is currently running AVG and tried malwarebytes only the service to run the program will not start.  Another reason to suspect a virus.  Please advise

Could be a Virus, but let's see if something has altered your Partitions.  Please follow the little tutorial at this link and post back the outcome.
