Hi comelyco,

Perform the steps mentioned below:

Perform disk cleanup. Press Windows + R key. Type cleanmgr and click ok. Select the drive you want to clean up from the drop-down and click ok. Place a checkmark next to the types of files you want the Disk Cleanup utility to delete. Click ok.

Also, you can empty the recycle bin.Emptying the Recycle Bin. On the desktop screen double-click Recycle Bin . Restore any file you don't want to remove as files deleted from recycle bin are not easy to recover. Click the Manage tab and select Empty Recycle Bin. Click Yes to confirm.

Thanks & Regards

Another possibility is a virus. After doing what was suggested in #1, Install and Run MalwareBytes freebie just to see what it finds:

Use green icon top right.

Note that not all issues on computers can be cured by running programs, free or otherwise.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
