Nate, I would suggest you run JV16 and have it scan your registry.
Let me see if I can find the link. Wait 1
Here it is: jv16 PowerTools - Registry Cleaner & Windows Utility Product | Macecraft Software
There is a really good grfx expert that goes by the handle: Torrentg who gave me the tip, I'm alsways nervous about touching my registry but it works and its free for 30 days.

So I ran Revo uninstaller, something which has never failed me, and it showed that it removed it, but it was still cooking, and so I removed it from the tree program. It asked, "Do you know what you are doing?" and the program was too big for the bin, so I took a deep breath and clicked it.

I mentioned that the drive, after turning the comp off and on, would go back down to 33 gig. This time, it went down to 24 gig, so for a long time, there must have been 8 gig of mechanic junk in there also. Now the computer has all of it's punch & snap back.

Right when I saw your reply, there was the same advice from the Patriot forum.

Why is it that the FREE programs work better than the ones that we pay all this money for? LOL
Thanks again!
Hi Guys, just signed on today. Anyways, I just had the same issue, PC Tools HD Monitor went berserk and a 130G would disappear in a couple hours. Thanks for the heads up on (pointing to PC Tools) and WinDirStat.

Guilty File was a Event Tracking Log *.ETL file in:
\Program Files\Common Files\PC Tools\sMonitor\

Thanks Again
