Hello Amar, welcome to GeeksToGo!

It look's like you need some malware removal assistance.

Please post a fresh log in the Malware section.

I see no signs of any infection.

What is the hard drive size vs. free space?

Before you go there lets have a quick look to see what is taking up the space

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

If possible attach a screen shot

Download and install the MSI Cleanup utility

This will create a new folder in program files

Then click start > run and type or copy/paste in the following

"C:\Program Files\Windows Installer Clean Up\msizap" G!

and as the name suggests it will zap the unneeded msp files that are not registered

Information about the problem can be found Here

Let me know how that goes :)

The above might not be your problem as your main drive is showing only 6.5 Gb on a fat32 drive
