Hi yet again  Roll Eyes

I'm using Windows ME. I usually use Firefox and am on broadband

I've just noticed my hard drive (only 7.85 gb total size as it is) has gone down from 2.63 gb to less than 1gb left in less than 2 days.

Now i have only surfed a bit, mostly in the same site which i am familiar with, and have downloaded nothing at all let alone losing over 1.5 gb in such a short time.

Not sure if relevant but i had used the Opera browser briefly in that time which has since been removed.
There appears to be nothing in my log below that indicates anything particular.

When using the Firefox browser however, my screen freezes for about 10 seconds and gets worse as the day goes on. Smileys, scrollbar or anything that moves freeze totally in this time and it occurs about 10 seconds after i load a new page or window for about 10 seconds.

The red light on my computer growls at me and gets worse as the day goes on during these freezing episodes.

Not sure if any connection with the above 2 points but worth mentoning.

Anyway, at this rate my hard drive will be gone completely by tomorrow but i don't know where it's going to.
System Restore is set to 504mb which isn't big as far as i know?

I am actually getting a brand new computer in about a year  Grin

Thanks for any help again

You have already started a thread which involves the same issue. I pointed out that your hard drive has errors on it, use the diagnostic tools by the manufacturer. If you have any important information on the drive please retrieve it now before its too late and replace the hard drive.
