I think I may have some kind of virus. My free disk space keeps dropping all on its own. I was warned I only had something ridiculous like 300kb of space left, so I deleted some stuff, and after a few hours it went all the way back down again. It's like some kind of twisted countdown. Can anyone offer any advice? Help would be appreciated.
Vista does somthing auto backs up or somthing but it shouldent be that much of a problem, how much hardrive space did you have?

It can take quite a large percentage of your disk space, and it would explain this problem. A lot of people have this "issue."
Realy? Dont get me wrong, its happened to me to but not enough that it was hampering me. Mind you there are self-replicating viruses that will eat up your space aswell.
I'm at a loss, really. I have a 200gb hard drive, and I'm only using 100gb of that. Virus scan came up blank... I dunno. Where can I check this vista auto-backup feature? I don't know what else could possibly be causing this.

Right click on your drive then select properties. In the new window select disk cleanup. Make sure you select "temp Files" and run it.

That freed up about 4gb of the missing 100, thanks =p
In the resource monitor am I looking for the thing with the highest "Read (B/min)"?
