HI Guys

I have an older Dell with a 74 Gig Harddrive. I keep getting low diskspace errors. I used a cleaner program, I've deleted nearly everything off my system. I have no pic's, no music, the only thing on the damm thing is a tax package and stuff like IE and google chrome.
It was suggested that I might have a virus taking up the space - so Last night I deleted a few more programs and installed Norton - it comes up clear..... BUT it had to go through over a million (yep a million) files. What the hell is with that?

I know I should just go buy a new one, but I dont' really want to do that right now. All ours is used for - for the most part is for surfing and email...

Any ideas how we could possibly have over a million files with nothing on it.

I've run everycleaner I can find - I've removed nearly all of my programs.... at present I dont' even have a word processing program... nothing seems to be helping. I know its time for f-disk....
