Malware consuming disk space?

Q: Malware consuming disk space?

I've recently been plagued with a pretty severe virus, which while i thought i had it mostly under control has covertly been filling my hard drive. I'm almost positive i've tracked down the offending file (C:\windows\system32\logfiles\wmi\trace.log) which is over 7 gigs. I'd like to just delete it but I'm not sure of the repercussions and doubt that this will stop the source of the problem.

Here are symptoms of the virus so far:

Unable to access task manager (fixed by manually altering registry)
Intermittent trojan adclicker/loader attacks (consistently deleted by synmantic)
Constant attempts made to alter registry item {192937EA-D3BB-45F5-9B33-ED6C3C358672} by "ec526bfb" (blocked by Spybot TeaTimer)
Spybot is unable to completely remove Virtumunde due to its being in memory but running at system startup yields same problem
5+ gigs of disk space consumed (C drive is listed as 0 free bytes)
consistent single popups in internet explorer
at starting of windows there are a number of blank cmd prompt windows which cascade slowly across the screen

there's probably more things which i haven't discovered yet... i have the system restore discs but only want to use them if my only other option is buying a new laptop. any and all assistance is greatly appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Malware consuming disk space?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Running Vista 2000 SP 3 on an older PC. Just installed Norton 360 and clean things up a bit. Have a 500GB drive that was about half full before the Norton install. Went down to 25MB in a day. No unusual activity save for copying 100ish GB of photos onto a thumb drive.

I have deleted more than 1.5 GB of stuff and verified that the drive reflected that reduction in properties. It did. Then over the next half hour it filled back to 25mb left.

I have done all the obvious: compressed, cleared recycle, "cleaned" the disk. Again, this is not an issue of removing files. Something is consuming space. It appears to stop at 25MBs - which makes me think that there may be a virus - but I JUST installed and updated Norton and went through all that .... so I am befuddled.

Ideas?
 

A:SOmething is rapidly consuming disk space

I would suspect something went wrong with the Norton install. You could check the Norton folder in both C/Program Files and in C/Program Data. Check how large they are.

A:Something seems to be consuming all hard drive space

Have you reviewed posts here concerning the same question you are asking?

Here are some simple steps to get you started
run chkdsk /r at a cmd prompt and answer yes to the question. reboot so it runs to check for file corruption
run disk cleanup [programs/accessories/system tools] and check everything
run defrag [same location]

check your system restore points configuration. you may be saving too often or have too much reserved disk space for this operation

user explorer to search on *.* [which is everything] on your OS drive [usually c:]. Then click on the size column to sort by size to see where your largest files are contained.

If still an issue post the results of a chkdsk for review.

How ridiculous is this?

<img src="http://I.imgur.com/Q7dTVO2.jpg" title="source: imgur.com" /></a>

10% of my entire SSD space has been consumed to save old worthless files I have no interest in. How about a "choice" Microsoft? God, what is it that Microsoft doesn't like about offering us choices?
"Attention User: We are about to upgrade your system to the latest build. Would you like us to A)delete your old build and re-install fresh or B)Keep the old buggy outdated build on your system and have it consume lots and lots of valuable space?". I'm thinking option A? What the hell?

"We didn't want the user to have to make a choice". *sigh*

I should just format my SSD and install the new build myself. But Microsoft thrusts it upon me before I even knew what was happening. This is not the first time I've been thrusted upon by Microsoft.

I've seen a recurring post on many forums discussing the absurd amount of disk space being consumed by the C:\Windows\WinSXS folder.

I've done some testing in house to confirm the fact that the files in this folder are predominantly hard links to a small number of files and it's not really taking up anywhere near the space that Windows Explorer is reporting.

Here is a link to better explain what I am talking about:
WinSxS Disk Space Usage: It&rsquo;s Not What You Think (David's Blog)
Here was my conclusive test:

1). I took a virtual machine and created a new 200MB hard drive that I assigned the drive letter E:

2). I created a subfolder on E: called WinSXS. So, I had E:\WinSXS

3). I copied in a 13MB zip file into E:\WinSXS.

4). I then created 20 hard links to that zip file with the command shown in the link above (mklink /h hardlink#.zip original file

5). According to Windows Explorer, E:\WinSXS is now 267MB in size.....even though the entire E drive is only 200MB.

6). From a cmd prompt, running dir on E:\ shows 174,543,872 bytes free.

Therefore, tools like Windows explorer and TreeSizePro will report that that WinSXS folder is consuming massive amounts of space....while the true fact is that the folder is being misrepresented because the reporting tools do not understand the difference between hardlinks and real files.

A:WinSXS Folder not actually consuming lots of space

Sorry for dragging up this old post, but it answers a question I've been searching and searching for an answer to. I can confirm that on my system, when I add up all the root directories on my main hard drive then subtract the "size" of the WinSXS folder, I get the reported used space in the properties of my boot drive.

Thanks pparks from ending this tail chasing!

Hello,

I have a Acer Aspire 5315 laptop that is going on three years old with Windows Vista Basic. The computer has an 80 gig hard drive with two partitions split evenly. After a while I noticed it continually consuming more hard drive space on the C drive when no new programs were being installed. During regular use during the day (checking email from Gmail) I started getting prompts that the computer was running low on hard drive on C drive. The computer had 2 gigabytes of free space on the C drive initially. I rebooted only to find out that windows didn't give the space back.

I have tried doing a hard drive clean up with only marginal success in reclaiming part of the initial 2 free gigs on C drive. I have tried registry fixing programs like Reg Cure and other system tune up programs like System Mechanic and the problem continues. The laptop initially came with 1 gig of ram I have upgraded it to 2 (the max the laptop can take).

I noticed the problem started to happen after I had to use a restore point to fix a driver problem with my printer. Any suggestions of what to do is much appreciated or even what to try.

I had heard that laptops have a recovery console that may fix this this problem that resets it to factory defaults. Further information on this would also be useful.

Thank you in advance for any help!

Hi,

My hard drive keeps saying I have low disk space issues. I know this is not the case. Before this started happening, I had about 2 gigs of space. But this space keeps getting eaten up slowly over an hour or so until there is 0 bytes free! I know its not my temporary files (i have cleaned them all up). I have also done scans with AVG anti virus, ad-aware, and spybot. Everytime I uninstall something or delete something in order to make more space, the free space keeps being eaten up over the course of an hour.

I was sent here from the Am I infected? forum. My thread there is http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic414140.html/page__p__2373641#entry2373641

In the past 2 to 3 weeks I have noticed a few things start to go wrong with my laptop. Firstly I started noticing big chunks of data (anywhere from 1GB-5GB) disappearing from the disk space in a very short space of time for no reason. All I would usually be doing in that time is browsing.

After this happening a few times, I decided to do a full scan with MBAM. I tried this 3 times, Every time, usually over an hour into the scan, (most full scans in the past took a little over 2 hours), I got the Blue Screen of Death. The error I got each time was:

KERNEL DATA INPAGE ERROR.

So, then I decided to do a scan in Safe Mode without networking and it completed in just over an hour, completely clean with no threats found. The next step I took was to scan with TDSS Killer, which came back clean as well. Finally, I tried an online scan with ESET and it detected 3 threats about an hour into the scan. These were:

Java/TrojanDownloader.Agent.NAN trojan.

The scan continued on for another half an hour, got to 94% and then I got the same BSoD problem as before.
All the above occured before I posted in the other forum. Since then I have managed to do a full ESET which came back clean with no threats. I had MBAM go into a BSoD twice more when I did a full scan. However, on the third time I successfully managed to complete a full scan, wh... Read more

Hi there!

I'm currently running AVG and Malwarebytes and nothing is picking up on what I believe to be malicious malware.

Disk usage regularly spiking to 100% (or near it) while using maybe 3 mbps, spikes on random applications, including but not only AVG, Steam, Google Chrome, Malwarebytes, and a whole slew of things before I factory reset. Just regularly seem to get high percentage spikes but it appears nothing is being used, while severely slowing my PC down. Also ever since the (approximate) infection date, I've noticed my internet is significantly slower across the board. Could possibly be unrelated but it started near the inception of the infection. Basically my computer is really bogged down, and I'm having to wait up to a minute for things like google chrome to launch on a PC I purchased in May. Post-factory-reset I'm seeing absolutely no change, and sometimes even worse performance than before.

Help me Obi Wan, you're my only hope.

Hi,

Since yesterday, my PC behaves suspiciously :
I’ve got a main C: partition that’s 40gigs.. with 6gigs of available space.
Yesterday, I got an insufficient disk space warning from windows.. and indeed, explorer told me I had 0 byte left available !!
I thought it was really an insufficient disk space problem, so I freed up some stuff, up to 2GB.. and Windows told me, as expected, that I had 2GB available.. but after a few minutes, I only had 1.5gigs.. and minutes after minutes, I ended up loosing all available space again…
I did a disk exploration, and Tune Up Disk Explorer told me I had 8gigs available, while explorer told me 0 !!
I did a reboot, and everything went back to normal.. I had 8gigs available again.. except it keeps decreasing, minute after minute…
I’ve got this problem even in safe mode !
There’s no file creation and no file getting bigger in any way.. looks like it’s just Window’s “counter” that’s decreased…

I did all the search I could do, doing complete scans with DrWeb, Avira Antivir, Spyware Doctore, Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware, SuperAntiSpyware… All those tools reporting no infection at all !

Here are 2 hijackthis reports : One in safe mode, one in normal boot mode..

the Bootvis process didn't end well, so I uninstalled it.. but it kept logging in some secret place on the hard drive...
tough to remove actually : The only solution is to make sure you let bootvis do its job.. then reboot, then uninstall it, then delete everything in the registry that has 'bootvis' written on it...

so, all in all : do not use Bootvis !

Hi and welcome

We could use a screen shot of the drive D partition but probably your backups are stored there and you can delete the oldest to free up some space. Make sure you have another before you delete it. That partition is tiny bTW 9 gigs is way too small to be effective.

I am wondering is there is a 3rd party or freeware product, that will show me, real time on what programs, resources are causing not only slow CPU useage, but constant hard drive disk access ?

I run Windows Vista Home Premium x 64 and have constant issues with a service, program, ? Constantly accessing my hard drive/ I would love to be able to find out what this process is and "kill" it. It is causing SLOW CPU access. I also run IE 8, I know, I know, but I must be able to keep a weeks worth of History.

Any help, programs, sites, would be appreciated !!!

A:Is there a Freeware product to find what is consuming CPU & causing Disk Thrashing

Download and try process explorer, the best way that I know to find out about CPU.

Try a simple clean boot and see if the problem is any better.
How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
If something is amiss, it may be downloaded each time you boot; clean boot will let you know.
I do not know of any software that keeps a months records.

I would, also run an antivirus check and download and make a full scan (after updating, with malwarebytes. Maybe, not exactly what your are looking for, but in my opinion the answers to your problem.

For a 24 hour period, or longer, you can type event viewer in search and see what has occurred, but not in the form you like

I use, Win Patrol, free edition. As you use the computer, Scotty the Dog, will bark and ask if you want (a new) program or process to have access. When it is first downloaded you can see what process is considerd to have access already.

Problem: the logo consumes X amount of space, so if you have a 1,000 letters using this template, that would mean: 1,000 X .gif ##. (consume's too much space)

As long as we're talking the same person's PC, just link the logo instead. For instance, Insert-Picture-From file select the Link to file box.

Now, don't move the logo from its current location and it'll always link up. Send the document via email won't work unless the recipient has access to that location as well, such as a shared network drive.

Hello to all.

I have a problem with my windows 7 pro laptop that shows only 7,49/100 GB free memmory. I tried to delete all shadow copies and previous versions. Also did chckdsk /f which give me 0 errors, tried to search in hidden and OS files, but there arent any big files, diskcleanup with system files cleaned about 1 gb.
Then I downloaded winDirStat which shoved me that I only have 43Gb of data on my c: drive. I don't have any ideas what could be done to increase free disk space. Please help

A:Windows show low disk space, win dir stat shows different space

In My Computer, click the Tools menu then on Folder Options then click the View tab and tick "Show hidden files and folders" then untick "Hide protected system files and folders", click Apply and OK.

Then, go into c:\ windows and delete all the files in blue which statr with a $ symbol. They are only folders that once contained Windows Updates you no longer need to keep. Then scroll down to the Software Distribution folder and to Download. Empty that folder.

Look in Control Panel>Power options and make sure Hibernation is turned off then in System, adjust the size of System Restore so it takes up only 4% of the disk space.

Restart the computer and see hwo much space you freed up.

Am I the only one to notice and complain over this in W8.1.

This morning a new Adobe Flash update has appeared, KB3079777. The update is sized at 17.9mb. Nothing is running on the PC, its idle and with no disk activity. Free space is 55.4GB. I apply the update and free space immediately falls to 54.9gb. This behaviour is consistent with every such patch applied. Now over time, that space will return which suggests that something else is going on here. But what ?

Hi

We just placed a new Dell Dimension. It has a 40 Gig hard drive.

User keeps getting this message:

DISK FREE SPACE HAS DROPPED BELOW THE MINIMUM THRESHOLD. FREE UP SPACE ON YOUR HARD DISK DRIVE BY:

1. BACKING UP YOUR DATA TO A TAPE BACKUP, ZIP OR NETWORK DRIVE
2. DELETE UNUSED FILES

IF YOU ARE UNSURE WHICH FILES ARE SAFE TO MOVE OR DELETE, CONTACT YOUR HELP DESK OR CONSULT YOUR SOFTWARE MANUALS.

This machine has over 30 gigs of free space. It's impossible that there is a disk space issue.

Any ideas what could be causing this? Some sort of mis-communication or setting?

Thanks

I would type Run in the search box. Start it and then in the Run box type %temp%. This will open up the temp folder for the current user. These files are safe to delete.

Now this thing has a 250 gig drive but it is also used for security in a mini mart with 8 cameras. There are about 145 Gigs of video from the security cameras on this box.

This appears to be a long-running, common problem with Windows 7 (and likely more recent OS versions).
It also appears to be an on-going problem, and needs to be actually fixed by Microsoft.
At some apparently random time after the system boots, one of the CPUs cores will become occupied at nearly 100% by a thread associated with something similar to "APCI.sys+0x1af7c".  With one core completely occupied by this thread and
its associated interrupts, the whole system becomes sluggish.
While this wild thread/interrupt series appears to be random, it is more likely to occur around the time that a cell phone is plugged or unplugged into the PC via a USB cable or possibly when using Firefox and streaming video from sources such as CNN or
YouTube (it does not appear to be a problem when streaming from Netflix, Amazon, HBO, and the like).
There are two ways to work-around this:
1.  Reboot your machine.  The problem will come back at some point, at which time you can reboot again.  This solution harkens back to one of Bill Gates' signature accomplishments from Windows 1, where he got people to believe it was acceptable
to hit the reset button on your computer multiple times a day.  Yes, the problem will keep coming back, but at least for some random period of time after you reboot your PC, it will not be sluggish.
2.  Disable "Wake on..." features from your wired network card (not wireless network), whether or not your... Read more

I've had my Acer Aspire 5310 laptop for a few months now with Windows Vista. I have an 80GB hard drive, partitioned into two drives as default.

Until now I've never noticed that the numbers didn't add up. I know when you buy and 80GB hard drive, it should actually show up as less due to bits and bytes and what not (80GB=74GB roughly) but I found something fishy in Disk Management. There is a drive showing up with no letter assigned to it which is nearly 10GB in size and after doing the math it accounts for the 10GB i lack after adding my two 32GB hard drives together.

So I have 2 x 32GB drives plus this weird drive which is 10.

I have attached the screenshot of disk management.

If anyone knows what is going on here I would very much appreciate it!

A:Problem with Vista Disk Management/Being robbed of hard disk space!

has this just recently appeared? This is a longshot, but if you have Kaspersky lap installed then that could be the problem. It autologs roughly 10 gigs of data without your permission, it is easy to get rid of, but annoying none the less.
However this doesn't seem to likely as what seems to have happened here is that you have accidently split one of your hard drives into two. Either that or a program like deamon tools has created a virtual drive. Do you use either deamon tools or alcohol 120?

Hi peeps and thanks in advance for any help you can give me! My laptop is doing my head in thanks to its new-found ability to chew up free disk space on my C:/ drive. Not sure if this problem has been on-going for a few weeks or something, but it's come to a head now!! A few bits of info that might be handy: Vista Home Premium 32bit, laptop is about three years old, 160GB HDD partitioned into a C: and a D: (both with approx 70GB total space according to Properties).
The story goes like this:

1) Got low disk space warning pop up (something like 300MB left!) - thought that this was entirely plausible since my wife keeps taking videos of our little baby on her camera and saving them on the lappy!
2) Decided to move some User folders from the C: to the D: and in the process moved about 5GB which then freed up several gig of space on the C: drive. Then I noticed that this was consistently dropping and the HDD light was flickering all the time, even when the laptop was not in use.
3) Updated and ran all the following programs: AVG 2011 Free, CCleaner, CWShredder, Malwarbytes - and nothing untoward reported.
4) Booted into safe mode and ran the programs again and still nothing reported.
5) Accessed VSS records via a command prompt and this was set to UNBOUNDED maximum capacity and showing as 16GB in use on disk, so revised this down to 12GB (a cautious approach, I admit!) and freed up a bit more space but this again is slowly being reduced.

I'm not sure how I ended up like this, but using Computer Manager > Disk Manager, I ended up with my disk 0 as follows:

System Reserved
85MB NFTS
Healthy (System, Active, Primary partition)

16MB
Unallocated

System (C)
139.64 GB NTFS
Healthy (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)

In addition, I have four other hard disks, and they are correctly formatted and partitioned (one partition each -- which is what I want with disk 0).

Objective: reclaim the unallocated 16MB and add it to the healthy section; likewise, reclame the "System Reserved" and also add it to the healthy section.

I'm rebuilding the system and don't have much software, so I could reload Windows 7 (Professional), but I'd rather avoid reloading those 100 fixes!

What should I do?

A:Using Disk Manager, need to unshrink and reclaim Disk 0 space

Just extend System Reserved into the 16mb space which was shrunk from it: Partition or Volume - Extend.

The rest looks correct although it would be best to see a screenshot of your maximized Disk Mgmt map with listings.

Make sure none other than SysReserved are marked Active.
