Probs with Explorer

Hello,
       Lately I have been experiencing some weird things when using Explorer in Win95. The problem concerns the size of the remaining space in my hard-drive (at the bottom of the screen) - it seems to change quite often, w/o any change in files etc.!!! At first I thought I might have a virus, but after using F-Prot and McAfee Virusscan, I am pretty sure that there is no such prob.

 The only thing I can think of that could be responsible is the spike protector that I purchased recently. I’m not sure though whether the prob occurred before or after I started using it.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!
 
Cheers,
 Blair

The reason is most likely the win95 swap file.
If you have not changed the settings from the default it is using at its discretion from 4 to ? megs on your hard drive. The limit is the space left on your harddrive.
