My Hard drive keeps shrinking in available amount

Bought a new HP Vista the other week.

I keep noticing that the available amount keeps shrinking 2-6gigs a day.
I haven't downloaded anything new. I've cleaned out recycle bins and disk cleanup. Temps and downloaded folders too. I ran cc cleaner.


I've installed 3 virus protection software, norton, adaware, spybot search and destroy, no viruses.

It's weird, I'll be sitting at my desk and look back a few hours and 2 gigs are gone.

I'm the only one with access to this computer.

Go to Restore and Disable Restore on drive partitions that do not have the operating system on it. For the Operating System Partition turn that down to 9% of drive but leave it running

I'm a little new to this, how do I get to all that you mentioned?

Your problem is system restore and works slightly different on Vista click here
