virus says I have 0 disk space

Recommended Posts

I have picked up something that is either creating files and eating up all of my hard drive disk space or is somehow tricking my system to think it has no space.

I went to bed the other evening and had approx 20GB of free space - when I got on the next morning, I had 0. I then moved about 5-6 GB of stuff to an external drive and a little while later I checked and that space also disappeared.

I ran MBAM (and superantispyware) and nothing was found.

Since I don't have any disk space, I can't even download the dds.scr file. I tried deleting something to create enough room for dds, but once a file is deleted, that empty space is immediately eaten and I go back to 0 space available. I tried to save it to my external HDD and run it from there, but I couldn't the file to save there either.

I don't even know where to start with this.

Thanks for your help.
