Unknown Folders and Docs and settings is bloated.
Posted on 2007-08-02
My boot drive (C) is bloated. Documents and Settings folder has in it 4 administrator folders (3x 1.78mb plus 1 8.35mb), 1 all users folder(147mb), 1 faded default user folder(1.05mb), and 1 Donnie folder(30.6GB0 1 Local service folder (472mb) and 1 network service folder(2.31mb). The "donnie" Folder Is loaded with 30.6GB of who knows what! There is loads of crap in there much of it repetitive.
The Administrator folders are identical. (cookies local settings and templates) under local settings, I get App Data, history and temp int. files(ie5)>under Application data, I get Microsoft> Media Player, Windows, Windows media. Under Templates I get office 2003 stuff that I have never seen or used. Excel powerpoint, etc
My user accounts show only Donnie and guest. I did not create any other users accounts and do not know where the "Administrator" folders came from, as they are not in user accounts.
I was messing around with MS office publisher last nite but I did not save anything.
I also downloaded a program called "Sandboxie" which I believe put "ME" in a sandbox instead of the newly downloaded programs it was suoposed to.
"My Documents" under Donnie suddenly blew up up over last nite to that 30.6 gigs full. In drive C, there are 2 files hiberfil.sys (1.99GB) and pagefile.sys (2.99 GB) that I do not think were there before last nites downloads.
My HDD C should only have about 15 to 20 gigs used ,but has 51 gigs in it almost overnite. What do I do?
I have tried to be specific, but a 30 gb Docs and settings folder is ridiculous. Movies take up about 8 gb of space but what about the above ".sys" files that just apeared out of nowhere?
Please help and thanks
