Trojan may be eating my hard drive space

I have about 4 mb left on my hard drive. Last night I downloaded a program and all of a sudden my disk space was gone. I'm not getting any error messages but i've been deleting as many programs as possible and i've already backed up my most important files on a flash drive. I've also noticed that every time I delete a program, my disk space decreases. I've run a scan via trend micro office and found two things but they were "cleaned" and ran another scan but, the problem persisted. Then i used, a windows scan and still, nothing was found. It may be important to mention as well that earlier during the day i enabled port forwarding through those ports in order to get my torrent downloads to move a bit faster.

Now,If anyone has any idea on how to fix this, please reply as soon as you can.

Thank you.

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
