Shrinking Hard Drive

  SimonV 09:02 19 Jun 2009

Hi i have an Acer Aspire X3200 with a 1TB HDD. It is split into two drives. I have started to notice that the drive that is used is losing up to 2GB a day in avaliable space. I have used WinDirSat to determine what is taking up all the avaliable space on the drive and have come across a dll file that is 12GB in size. Im not really too clever with computers but this does seem a little big. I have Mcafee installed could it have let a virus in? Please help i have only had the computer 3 weeks and really just dont understand.

What is the name of the 12Gb file?

I doubt whether it is a virus.
