I have windows 2000 Pro on a 2.4 GHZ P4 with a 60 GB Hard Drive. I installed Personal Oracle 9i on it by downloading three Zip files from the Oracle web site. I uncompressed the files and installed the software on my system and now I am unable to delete these zip files from my hard drive even though I have uninsalled Personal Oracle since then. It seems like they are hooked into the memory!
Another problem I had was that my free diskspace went to 0 after being around more than 40 GB in the morning. I looked for .tmp files and all but nothing of that sort existed. I also tried to get a sum of the space of all directories on the C drive and the number came out to 13 GB. I tried to do a sum of all the files in the C drive and the sum came out to 200 MB. And yet the C drive shows to be 55 GB in size. I did resource monitoring last night and it showed 100% CPU utilization when nothing was really running. I figured imy computer was hacked and I disconnected from internet. It is still disconnected and the resource utilization is down to 2%. However, the space filled is still 55 GB
I do not know what to do other than partition the hard drive again. Desperate for help
