Hi,

i have just recently solved a spyware/trojan problem thanks to the geeks to go team but now my c: drive (the one with windows installed) has incorrect information for the free space available. In My Computers it says its used 9.9 gigs, but when i right click - properties, it says it only has used 6.1 gigs. I know for sure that it does not use 9.9 gigs, as recently i deleted a few major programs to free some space and within a day the space just suddenly seems to get eaten away.
I run Windows Me btw.

thank you in advance.

Just in case you haven't already run them, run scandisk to check for errors, it can detect errors in the boot sector which cause misreading of drive space. Also run sfc, system file checker to repair any damaged files. Just put scandisk or sfc in the Run windows and hit OK. This should be routinely done after virus removal.
