My ‘C’ partition suddenly got much bigger

Specs: Windows XP
My ‘C’ partition suddenly got much bigger than the previous week with no new programs being installed

In the ‘C’ documents and settings folder there are two subfolders viz. (1) User and (2) All users
Listing properties in (2) it states 300 MBs
Listing properties in (1) it states 20 GBs

There are seven sub sub directories in (2) but the total size (adding up the properties in each of the sub/sub directories) is less than 2 GBs

What could be using up the 18 GBs stated when listing properties under the first (1) sub directory?

I have AVG and Malwarebytes installed

Thanks for any ideas

First has the free space on your "C" drive changed dramatically or is it just what tou are seeing in documents and settings?

Second there are many files that by default are hidden so adding up what you can see will never give you the full amount you are expecting to see.
