A few days ago System memory has been just filling up on my hard drive for seemingly no reason. I didn't give it much thought so when it almost filled up I just kept deleted things I no longer needed to free room. But I keep ending back at 0bytes eventually without even doing anything. I thought it might be a virus and ran a system scan but that didn't seem to be it. Then I used WinDirStat and found a folder labeled CBS in my Logs folder that takes up 16 gigs. Is this normal? can I delete it? It's mainly two CbsPersist text documents that take up 10 gigs and 6 gigs each. If thats not it then any ideas? I also have 15 gigs of .dll and 12 gigs of . pp around on my hardrive that wont disappear when I try and have my Pc free disk space. Is there any way to track where It is going? Is it possible to have a memory leak? My hardrive has a total of 418 gigs for space.

Can I first ask you to refer to the GTG malware redirection text below;

 

I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found here. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
