drive c memory zero

I am getting repeated pop ups saying either hard drive c is close to capacity or that it has zero% memory left what does this mean does it indicate a virus or malware? thank you

It could be either of those or both. Or you have download to much stuff on your HD. Or you have too many backup restore points. Or...............................?????????????????????????


We could use a nice screen snip of Disk Management

Start Computer Management Disk Management
Maximize to full screen
Take a Snip of it with the Snipping Tool, Save snip, then upload the snip here in your post.

OK. Your hard disk is completely full....there is no more free space on it. You will need to make space by:

1. Deleting any information you don't require and/or;
2. Uninstalling programs that are no longer needed.

Here is a useful guide for recovering more disk space - use this after having performed 1 & 2 above:
Disk Cleanup - Open and Use

I am trying to uninstall but the note says there is no space to install

after this would you be able to also help for the outlook corruption because of which emails cannot be sent or received

thanks

Run steps 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 of this tutorial first:
Disk Cleanup - Open and Use

When finished, post a new screen capture image of the Disk Management screen.

Once you have recovered some space, only then you can tackle the Outlook problem.

You need to atleast delete some unwanted files to the recycle bin, so that you have enough space to run any uninstall programs to remove those others that you want to get rid of.
