Please download and run Winstatdir
When the little pacmen have finished investigating the drive you will be presented with a visual image of your folders
Select the folder using the most space by clickin the little + sign alongside it
Locate the folder that is using the most space
If there is a + alongside that then click it to dig deeper
Highlight the offending folder and press Ctrl + C this will copy the path to your clipboard
Then right click the folder and select open
This will then open explorer to that folder.. Do you recognise it ?
Then open note pad and select paste... Post the file path in your next reply plus the size and if possible post a screenshot of the windirstat graphical display

While this could be a mal-ware issue, it is a common complaint with Vista because shadow copy makes a copy of every thing to your hard drive. (doubling your disc space used.)
Please read This article by Microsoft to learn more about shadow copy.
