Losing at least 1 GB per day from C drive-Advent 5431

The Vista C drive on my Advent 5431 laptop shows that I have 106 GB of storage left. A week ago I had 111GB left and since then I have personally downloaded precisely nothing. I'm running Vista Home Premium, AVG Anti-Virus Free and BHODemon 2.0 if that is of any relevance. Beyond this I am doing nothing other than checking the internet and yet I seem to be losing a gigabyte a day. I have looked on Google but can find nothing about it, and am starting to worry. I only bought the computer at the end of December 2008 and didn't expect this sort of thing to happen. I update my antivirus software every time I am online and perform regular error checks and defrags, but this isn't helping. In fact I removed the few pieces of work I had stored on the laptop onto a pen drive, scanned, defragged, yet this has lost me a further 3GB! Please help me.

May I know whether the Hard Drive is listed in the BIOS? This issue will occur if the Operating System is corrupted or if the Hard Drive is failed. You can use the Windows disc and reinstall the Windows once. If the reinstallation process is not successful, then you may have to replace the Hard Drive.

My advent 5431 laptop windows vista setup hangs


often in vista installation, you have an option to install a driver, and then you put your driver disk in the drive and the Sata driver is installed. Then vista will install as it should . Give it a try..

Losing 1 gig per day


There could be a number of reasons for losing 1 Gb of downloads each day.
If you are viewing or downloading movie, video or YTube, these are usually large files, movies are Gb in size.
If your e-mail have video or audio attachments, these can be Mb size files.
If you have a wireless Internet connection and if it is not secured properly, someone could be accessing your Internet without your knowledge and using up your download allocation.
Is someone else using your computer, do you know if they are accessing the Internet, chat room, blogs, etc.
