    Someone brought me a laptop to cure, which was very low on hdd. space (less than 5 mb free) + malware.

    I tried ccleaner & TFC (by old timer) this did not help.

    I then looked at 'computer' & the hdd. is approx. 80 GB. Next I ran 'disc clean up' I found the category, I believe 'windows error reporting' this contained a whopping 438 GB. I deleted 438 GB & all was fine.

    How can error reports contain 438 GB (or report it) on a 80 GB drive?

    Dr. Web Cure IT found & removed:

    Location.
    Instmon.exe Trojan.inject.55345
    Lexdef.dll Trojan.killfiles.8600
    Lxblcomm.dll Trojan.click1.63825


    Thanks

    whatever reported back to you with 438gb on a 80gb, it lied especially with malware on

    Hi Cundi,

    How would those TR's, trick windows into reporting a full hdd.. Then how/why could i delete the 438 gb?

    My googleing I did see some, reports some malware (not sure which ones) caused a disc to fill up with TEMP files, not win error reports.
