A virus used all the free space on my PC!!

Specs: Windows 7
Ok... so I already know that Trojans (in some cases) are made to use as much memory as they can. I did a virus scan on my PC and found a Trojan. I already suspected I had a virus because of my computers behavior. The scan took about 3 days (full scan with Microsoft security essentials). Every day, I checked the memory of my C: drive (knowing that Trojans could eat up memory). On the second day, I only had 11.5 GBs free space on a 139 GB HD (I had about 60 GBs free before the virus). My question is; Does anyone know what file the virus created to use up so much memory or know of any software I could use to find it. I am running Windows 7 so my computer is starting to run a bit slower with only 12 GBs (I removed the virus and my free space went to 12 GBs). Please Help!!! Thank you so much :)
