i need some help
« on: January 15, 2012, 10:23:00 AM »
hello. i have a problem, it sounds like this: the used space from C part.(with Windows) it's going to decrese. it's happens with few MG. i've tried a disk defragmentation, but after few minutes the free space it's more with 2/3MG, after a restart it's less and then, much more.. i thing it's about a virus, but my Avast 6., didn't check anything. also, i don't see suspect processes at task manager.
i'm sorry if i didn't match the topic and for my english. pls somebody tell me what it's all about?

I need to know more information about your machine to answer your question:

1.   What is your OS, 32 or 64-bit?  How much RAM do you have?
2.   What version of Avast did you install?  6.0.1367? 
3.   What product of Avast did you install?  Free, Pro, AIS?
4.   What other security software do you currently have or did you have in the past on this machine including:
- Antivirus (AV)
- Firewall (FW)
- Trial versions of AV, FW and other security programs
- Other security software (example: Malwarebytes [MBAM])

- If they were in the past, how did you remove them (the vendor's uninstaller's tool or  another way)?
5.   Are your MS Updates (if you have Windows) current?
6.   Are your software updates current?
7.   Are the Avast definitions (updates) current?
8.   When was the last time you did any kind of scan in Avast, and if so what kind of scan was it?  Did your scan come out clean (no infection)?
9.    Did this problem start all of a sudden or come on gradually?  If it came on all of a sudden, what were you doing when it started and when did it happen?

I'm sorry for all the questions, but this will help identify issues that are causing problems.  Thank you.

Is system restore on? If it is, system restore is making an image copy of the whole drive. Well, it only record major changes such as installing windows updates, installing some new programs, etc.
You might want to delete all except the latest restore point. You can do this with ccleaner or go to control panel>system. select advanced system settings on the top left panel. On the system properties panel, select system protection tab. On the System Protection for Drive C window, select delete. Note that it will delete all restore points so if you need to revert to a previous state of windows it will not be possible.

Also your browser saves some data on HD to makes websites load faster when you check them out again. Clear your browser's cache or use ccleaner from www.piriform.com/ccleaner

and my temp from Windows file, it's small than temp from Doc.andSettings, that one it's like 10mg, but no problem, it should decrease the free space, not the used one. :-\ :'(
