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.

Search *.* with size > 50MB

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