C: drive full when it's not

June 26, 2013 at 06:32:14
Specs: Windows 7
When I start my computer it shows that my C: drive has 125 GB free space. After 2-3 hours I can't download any files or work in any program because it shows that my C: drive is full and it's not possible. Then I restart my computer and after that it again shows that I have 125GB free space on my C: drive. Does anybody know why is it acting like that?

There is a "possibility" of a virus so to start with install and run MalwareBytes freebie (preferably from FileHippo).

You say it tells you the "C: drive is full and it's not possible". How much space is left when you get that message?

It's acting like a swap file--it gets bigger the longer the computer is on and deletes itself when you shut down the computer. But a swap file taking up 125 gig is hard to imagine. You're sure it's 125 gig and not 12.5 gig or even 125 meg?

How large is the C: drive partition?

How much ram do you have?
