Faulty disk space error messages.

Specs: Windows 7, unknown / 4gb
Hello, I have at least 120Gigabytes free on my laptop, but windows has been telling me that I have none. I will be working on my laptop and I will receive an error message saying "Low disk space", which leads to "No disk space" without me downloading anything or installing anything. If I clear disk space I will see it show up in the "amount of disk space free" readout, but it will steadily decline, quickly enough that if I refresh I can watch it go down, without any downloads or installations occurring. It does go away occasionally, every couple of hours or so, and It will show me my true amount of disk space. But for that time that it tells me I have little disk space I cannot do much of anything. The computer doesn't run slowly or anything during that time, and I cannot download anything, it just tells me I have none. What's going on?!

Also seems I have a corrupt sMoniter folder outside of system32. That seems to be the source of the problem

sMonitor appears to be a shareware program that is intended to monitor network traffic. I suggest you go to Control panel> programs and features. Remove sMonitor from there and reboot. Then you can delete any logs created by the program. If you didn't install that program I suggest you ask others that use that computer about it.

Why did you install sMonitor anyway?
