  1. I've done everything I can think of but it just keeps getting smaller and smaller. (That sounds so off-topic, don't it? haha.)

    Windows XP SP2, I've removed all but the last restore point, ran the windows disk cleaner as well as a seperate disk cleaner, tweaked my page file to take up less space, and ran virus/ad/spyware scans but still my drive space is disappearing. What have I overlooked?

    what software are you running? chances are that one of them is leaving temp files all over the place and not clearing up when closing down.
    You do close down using start - turn off computer? Anything else will leave files on the drive.

    That`s a strange one.

    Try running the Ccleaner programme as per step9 of this thread HERE.

    If that doesn`t help, read this thread HERE and post a HJT log as an attachment into this thread.

    Regards Howard :)
