I know, but it wouldn't hurt to try. This problem with constantly losing space I've had for too long. I'm inspired by another similar thread someone made with the exact same problem that I have and he downgraded and no longer had the problem.

Subject to no further problems
I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems
Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean
A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:
Download and run Delfix
: Keep Java Updated :
WARNING: Java is the #1 exploited program at this time. The Department of Homeland Security recommends that computer users disable Java
See this article
I would recommend that you completely uninstall Java unless you need it to run an important software.
In that instance I would recommend that you disable Java in your browsers until you need it for that software and then enable it. (See How to diasble Java in your web browser and How to unplug Java from the browser)
If you do need to keep Java then download JavaRa
Run the programme and select Remove Java Runtime. Uninstall all versions of Java present
Once done then run it again and select Update Java runtime > Download and install Latest version
Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programmes:
CryptoPrevent install this programme to lock down and prevent crypto ransome ware
Update and run weekly to keep your system clean
Click on the link above to be taken to Unchecky.com
click the very large Download button.
Click Open folder
Right click on the Unchecky_setup and choose to Run as Administrator
Once open click the Install button.
Then click on Finish
Unchecky is now installed and will help you keep unwanted check boxes unchecked, this is a fire and forget programme
It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

Hey thanks a lot for putting forth the effort, but I have a few questions,
Does cryptoprevent interfere with real time anti-virus tools?

I have been a victim of cryptowall, if someone becomes a victim of ransomware what happens to their original files that they cannot see, does this mean that the criminals can loook at those files and share those files with others or does this just mean they are gone from the owner forever?

Another question is can an infection of any kind get on a cd-r and if so can infections get on a linux bootable cd thats a cd-r?

Thanks for clarifying, I wanted to know about Linux because I have a bootable cd, so I am going to try and use that with a usb drive, even though the usb drive might be infected, so I should be able to remove infections apparent on the usb drive.

Download MCShield to your desktop and install
It will initially run a scan and show the result as a toaster by the system clock
Then in the control centre select scanner and tick unhide items on flash drives
Plug in the drive and McShield will start a scan
Then get the log which will be located under the logs tab on the main page
And post that

I was just about to look for MCSHIELD I read about in another forum entirely!
You've made it nice and convenient, thanks, hold on please!
