My colleague transferred the C drive to D drive, that gave me 12 GB space on C drive,
 
 
 
This morning when I start my computer I had 1GB left out of 58 on my C drive
 
 
 
I have a lot of problems with my laptop and can’t absolutely not without a proper working laptop now this days.
 
 
 
We used already a virus scan to find out if that was the problem, but nothing really found.
 
Only problem was that with the virus scan a kind of strange webpage showed up called “sweet page” and all what we try to remove, it still pops up.

what can I do to fix this behavior?

To help determine what files are causing the issue, download windirstat, when run, will graphically show you what is using up space on the drive, (link provided below).

This can help determine next course of action.

Windirstat is an excellent app that can be used add a portable non install (so you can determine the problem files without adding to the problem.  

What A/V are you using?  I ask because some like symantec can use a lot of space in Log files and previous definition files, although not usually overnight.
