Windows 7 Professional x64
Low Disk Space every few seconds.

Hello, Endy here and im having a problem with my Windows computer, Everytime i go into the Computer tab in explorer the disk space goes down 1GB every 5 seconds i click the "Refresh" Button. I remember when i booted up earlier today i had 10GB left of free space and i checked the space at noon time and saw it was at 3.94GB and kept going down every time i clicked the refresh button and it went down every 5 seconds. While i was writing this and checked it was at 814MB. Please help!

Welcome to our forum endyenderman.

Your problems is lack of free space.
Windows 7 will act funny in many ways with less than 10 to 20% free space.
Windows 7 needs elbow room to work properly.

It would help if you filled in your system specs properly.
You can use this tutorial by Brink to help you do that.
