Specs: Windows Vista
Hi!
Few days ago something started to happen with my computer. Before I had ca. 20GB free space on my Local disk C:. Yesterday i noticed that the free disk space was under 10GB and the meter that shows you how much free space you have was red, and the computer was sooo sloooowww. I taught i have installed to much programs and that so i deleted 1 GB, and then my free memory was over 10GB again, the meter was blue and the computer run as usually. But a bit later the computer went slow again and i checked the free disk space and it was under 10GB again!!?? !!?? I had only used internet and not downloaded anything! I deleted 1 GB again, and after en while there was again under 10GB. I scanned the whole computer with Avast, and it found two files that were unable to scan and i tried to delete it but avast says: "Error occured duing file deleting. The file is a decompression bomb".

How do I delete the files to get my computer run properly again???

The file location for the first file is:
C:\Users\Seppo\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\X08IK8TG\Windows6.0-KB936330-XG4-wave0[1].exe\[Embedded_I#0003998d]

and for the second file it is:
C:\Users\Seppo\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low\Content.IE5\NCU32K2A\Windows6.0-KB936330-XG4-wave0[1].exe\[Embedded_I#0003998d]

I USE WINDOWS VISTA HOME EDITION.

PLEASE HELP ME FAST! MY COMPUTER LOOSES MORE FREE MEMORY ALL THE TIME!

Go into Control Panel/Internet Options and delete Temporary Internet Files - make sure you're just deleting them and not cookies, history etc The filenames match that for Windows Vista Service Pack 1, but they may be fakes. More than likely, since you've got two of them.
