Windows 7: Low memory on C: drive after BSOD crash, suspecting malware.

23 Mar 2014   #11

Windows 7 Home Basic 32-bit

Okay I forgot to mention one thing before. This system is dual-booted with Ubuntu 13.10. When I tried to access that target folder through Ubuntu, I was able to do so. Now the contents of that folder are in the screenshot. So will it be possible to eliminate the problem through Ubuntu itself?

Did you run the command Noel suggested and upload the links.txt file that it creates?

I have no idea if Ubuntu can help.

@NoelDP Just wanted to know, what exactly happens in such a case?
The redirected dir command creates a text file with the info that Noel wants to see.

It is safe to run (if that is what you were asking):
