  1. Hi you guys recently i erased a great number of things i do not use from my computer....when i did so my C drive had about 207 GBs available space out of 288.....all of a sudden day by day the space decreased ...last night i tried panda antivirus 2008 to remove the viruses it could only get rid of 21 out of 25 ....earlier today it was at 187 GB i tried using one click maintenance to defragment after i did the space was done to 157 GB....this only happened before when i first bought my dell and they helped me for free by telling me to factory restore my computer....i really don't wanna do that again and i can't call dell because it ain't free no more

    if any one has an idea please tell me what kind of virus this is and how i can get rid of it...can i download a different anti virus program to use it or do i have to do the factory restore again......i tried system that aint help

    and b.t.w. if i get rid of the virus will the space i lost come back
