Windows 7: C Drive reports low disk space repeatedly

28 Feb 2012   #31

Microsoft Windows 10 Professional

Are you sure you're uninstalling firefox clean?

Manually remove these folders:
C:\Users\your username goes here\AppData\Local\Mozilla
C:\Users\your username goes here\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox

Download and install Firefox 10.0.2 directly from, never from other sites.

And never seen those files on Windows\Temp, something really fishy is going on with your Firefox.

Hope it helps!

I guess the only solution to my problem is to run CCleaner every week religiously.
Thanks again. Greatly appreciated.

Had the same problem. CCleaner worked like a charm. thanks gregrocker.
