  1. Ok, can anyone help with this one?

    I noticed that my PC was being reeaally slow recently so I attempted to clear some space, I did all the usual stuff: deleted unused programmes, emptied the recycle bin etc but its still slow and showing just 3% space remaning!!

    How can this be? Surely I can't have used all the capacity!! How do I see what's using the most space?


    Any advice most appreciated...

    Ali that is a worm/virus.
    If you can try installing spybot, if you get luck with it make sure you run it, it will do it magic.
    How ever to create some bit of space, you go to run, and type %temp%
    press enter and shift + delete all you find there...
    its safe...
    Hope that helps
