Hello ,
First of all I assume that we are dealing with a windows computer. Please ignore the below if I am wrong here.

Not enough space typically indicates that there is not enough space on the hard disk ( or other storage media) to store (save) the data the system is trying to save. So,, what, I think , you need to do is to check how much space is available on the storage destination. This is how you can do it.
Step 1.Open the windows explorer. Manually locate all the unwanted files on the C drive that can be removed and delete them. You need to remove these files from the "Recycle bin " to get them removed from the C drive completely.
One very common issue that happens is that a lot of photos / images gets stored in the C drive. If this is the case, move them ( or copy them and delete them from the C drive) to an external drive to create space in the C drive.
Step 2. Right click on the "C" drive and select "properties".
This will open up a small window that will show the total space on the disk , used up space and the available space.
There are a number of reasons why the disk space can be used up like temporary files, old log files, old installation files , memory dumps etc.
You can select the option of "Disk cleanup" available in the information window that pops up in step 2 above.
The machine will now calculate the amount of space that can be recovered by cleaning up unwanted files stored in the disk. Once this is done, you can go ahead and perform a cleanup.
One the cleanup is finished, check how much space is now available.It should be more than in step 2 earlier.
Step 3. Once all the cleanup is completed, the next thing that can be done is "Defragmenting" of the disk. The defragment option can be found under the "Tools" menu in the properties window of C drive. Select this and perform the defrag operation. If your disk is heavily fragmented, this could take some time. But be patient and get that done.
Once done, you can schedule defragmentation to automatically run periodically so that the disk remain with 0% fragmentation.
Please try these. .I truly trust this will help you.

Insufficient space on device

You will need to remove some items to make enough space. You can try some of the following to make some additional space:

  • Delete any apps you no longer use.
  • Transfer photos to a computer and the delete them from your phone.
  • Remove any videos you may have already watched.
  • Save any photos you want to keep from messages and then remove the text messages.

That should help free up some space and allow you to install the app.

Hope that helps!

If space is of a concern to you, then you may want to look into buying a tabletop version of the game. As the name suggests, the tabletop foosball game goes directly on top of an existing table.

A box keeps popping up saying "check air flow". Why/Where/how?

why - without adequate airflow, things get HOT. where - usually where there is a plastic/metal grill at the back of the device.. so your computer tower needs plenty of space behind and either side to ensure enough airflow to keep the components cool. Routers too need a little bit of airflow (not suggesting you hook up a desk fan)!.
how - just give a few more inches of space on all sides and see if it helps; keep increasing the space until the message stops appearing.

I believe I have a virus or worm that Norton cannot detect

Ok. How much space do you have free on your hard-drive right now? (I'm assuming that you know how to check this).

If its low, then maybe you didnt free up enough space on the drive. If it is high however, then answer this: is the message you are receiving telling you that you are low on disk space? or is it telling you that it is low on virtual memory space?

if its low on virtual memory, then the problem could be many including 1) virus etc 2) a program is running that is using up more RAM than is avaivable 3) you need more RAM on your system.

if its low disk space, then the problem could be 1) You need to free up more disk space (that may mean getting a bigger hard-drive installed)

Try using an updated virus scanning utility. If it says that you are virus free, then try one of the solutions above.

Memory to low on c drive message pops up even after I transferred most of my files to d drive

Are you referring to the virtual memory or just disk space? Assuming you are on Windows, even after transferring files, the space might not be enough. You can change the pagefile size (virtual memory) or just transfer enough files and even move your temp directory to D. That way the partition/drive with OS will have enough space. Now a days keep at least one gig free there. It usually starts complaining when it gets close to 500 MB.
