Im guessing you have a really bad virus. One that is a memory resident.

What anti virus and anti spyware programs do you have?

List your components.

Post a hijackthis lof in the appropriate Section.

Ok: Get your OS disc, boot off of it and run a repair. Not the recovery console. When windows detects another installation, press R for repair.

And it can be a virus. Whats a virus? Something that replicates itself? Hrmm that could take up space after while? Just a wild and crazy thought.
