Ok. Now this will, at the very least, improve your startup and system performance:

| MSCONFIG | ENTER | STARTUP tab |

Uncheck ALL except for:
avast "C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\avastUI.exe" /nogui
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware "C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe" /starttray

REBOOT

Personally, I'd get rid of Avast and use MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) Link in my sig. Smaller footprint, least interfering AV. updated regularly by Microsoft.

Now you posted and zipped the Startup.txt file.

Would you please Attach the install.txt file. When I download the file, then I change the extension to .csv and read it using Excel. Works like a charm.

Forgot to add,
When you uncheck all of those you are only telling Win 7 to not run them at startup time. You are not deleting them ir disabling them by unchecking them.

There's one other thing that automaticly use's space without your knowledge, System Restore, did you manually go to control panel / Recovery and physically turn off Sys Restore to that drive, if not that could be why free space is decreasing. Just a thought

PS. After turning off Sys Restore you do a restart to set it in stone.
Sorry, missed this post. I've already addressed the possibility of it being system restore. Thanks!

After, and only after, the full scan by the Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper finished, then attach a copy of:
the log files in--
\Windows\Standalone System Sweeper\Support

Files with a LOG extension which can be viewed with Notepad.

Sounds good. It's currently running the scan. I don't want to jump the gun, but it does say:

"Preliminary scan results show that malicious or potentially unwanted software might exist on your system."

This could just be an over zealous warning. We shall wait and see.

I did not read the whole thread. So forgive me if I repeat something.

But did you look at the shadowstorage (where the restore points are stored)??

This system sweeper scan is taking forever. I only selected my C:, but it's actually scanning my storage drives as well.

EXCELLENT!

The wait is time very well spent.

Think about how long you have been trying to fix this problem and the time that many others have put in trying to help.

I guarantee you we will all very gladly wait for each and every drive to receive a full scan.
