  1. My C disk is continuously filling up. I've deleted the files in the temp folders and turned of the internet and various security programs to see if anything discreet is causing this. After doing some research online, I turned off system restore to see if there was a change. Although turning off system restore tripled my free space in C, something is still taking up space continuously. PLEASE HELP

Ok After using spacemonger over the past 3 hours to see which sectors of my disk are increasing in size going through folder by folder subfolder by subfolder....i finally figured it out was the internet log folder in C:\Windows....that kept continuously growing. The file is tvDebug.log which belonged to Zone Alarm Client. After shutting down Zone Alarm, voila....

    Fine, well done. ZoneAlarm can be set to only produce one logfile per day.
