One day I was downloading Dogpile toolbar when the installation failed. Then I was downloading RegistrySmart while I was reading a article. I think while I was installing Dogpile toolbar a pop up bubble said that I was running out of free space on System (C) drive and if I would like to start Disk Cleanup. So then I went to Disk Management to see how much space I have left. I found out that I only have 1% of free space left (before I had around 30%). I uninstalled Dogpile toolbar. I used CCleaner. I used Disk Cleanup. I deleted a SpaceHog files (a powertoy from JDDesign). I did everything and it haven't changed. Could anybody help me? :help: :annoyed:

Thanks:thanks :thanks :confused:

Did you reboot the computer?

Did it have 30% free space immediately before you started to download/install the programs?

By the looks of it registrysmart isnt so smart.

It looks dodgy

I would get rid of it and use ccleaner.

Then get Malwarebytes (http://www.malwarebytes.org)

Then install it and update it, then scan

How big is this hdd?
