My space on my computer is steadily dropping
I use AVG, Windows defender, NortonIS (not a big fan) and a program called Spyware terminator

I scan frequently and I'm always clean, It's a relatively new computer, I've actually been cleaning out programs so the space going down is scaring me...

what do i check for?

ALSO: my RAM is off the charts alot, I had to close alot of startup programs and run on classic windows view just so i could see my start button...

it's more than likely that stupid auto backup crap in Vista. I forget what it's called, you'll need to disable it.

your using vista,so odds are it's just system restore. You can go in through the disk-cleanup wizard and delete all but the most recent backup. You'd be amazed at how much space that'll free up.

That's one big recycling bin :p. Sorry, just had to say it.
Lol it is, but I have yet to see Vista's limit on how much you put in it. XP wouldn't allow folder bigger than four gigs in.... I've put in a 16-gig folder (backup user account data)....
