look for any process using abnormal amounts of memory it could be copying itslef. also run warez's spyware guide as soon as possible.

what do you mean by it starts disapearing. are you just constanly right clicking the drive and viewing the space used while it boots or what?

oh ok i thought you where saying it was filling up. i wouldnt worry about it some files could be getting cleared on shutdown. reboot a few more times and if it continues to go down let me know.
