Low Disk Space what is the Problem
June 13, 2007 9:23am CST
Dear mylotters, I always encounter the problem of low disk space in my system. My computer has WindowsXP and it is always the problem to store any thing in the computer. always indicating low space. I use internet almost every day and I make always a point to remove all junk. Virus scan is also there but still I suffer the same. What do you think must have been to cause such inconvinence?. suggest how can I get rid of this problem?

Have you tried scanning for spyware? Also, what kind of anti-virus are you running? If it's freeware, they usually can't detect trojans or worms because sometimes, these viruses affect the anti-virus itself. You can also check the processes running on your computer (you can view this using the Task Manager). Sometimes, a lot of processes are running and they eat up your memory. Then, do disk scans and defragmentation to free up some memory too. Remove any files that you don't need anymore too.
