After reading info on Kaspersky's forum, I seriously doubt that it is malware that it is noting. I don't know if those two problems are related. What percentage of free space do you have on your HDD?
Assuming you are using an administrator's account, run chkdsk.
Chkdsk is a Microsoft disk checking program. It checks and corrects hard drive sector issues and well as correcting file and free space problems on the disk.
Open "My Computer", RIGHT click on the C drive icon, choose "Properties". When that loads, click on the "Tools" tab, then click on the "Check Now" button in the "Error Checking" section. When that little window loads, place a CHECK in BOTH boxes, then click on "Start Now". A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer, so......Restart the computer. Error Checking will run automatically after the restart and it locks you out from doing anything until it's finished. It takes a little time to perform the task but after it's finished,(assume 30-60 minutes) it will restart into Windows.
