I ran WinDirStat and the total count was 190G with the videos and pictures taking the most space; so my approximate "count" was close. Am I correct in the total count? If so where is the other 300G?...

Try to get driver updates from your pc maker and not windows, since they can be different, and that is crucial.

Avast did it.

I stopped Avast, installed MSE (file is fixed now), and problem is gone. I know from a previous old laptop Pentium 1) that had Avast, it could not handle the antivirus.
