This is not related with SQL Server. It must be a spyware that why it is filling up the C drive.

Try some spyware program or anti virus program and scan C drive..

They not necessarily be the issue. Files like Desktop.ini may be the issue. The file you mentioned is in KB. Look for big files.

Removed "SQL Server" as the topic area and added "IT Administration" instead since this has nothing to do with Microsoft SQL Server.
