    Thumbs down Sudden loss of free space

    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?

    Thanks

    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

    Then install it and update it, then scan

    How big is this hdd?
