Since a few days, I am getting an alert that in my c drive disk space is low. When I verified, free space in my c drive was decreasing hour by hour and there was a stage when it simply said that 0 mb free in C drive. Initially, I thought my system got infected by some sort of virus and scanned my whole system with an anti-virus. Anti Virus was not able to find anything. So I tried WinDirStat tool to verify which directory or program is hogging the memory so that I can at least get a feel what exactly is happening in my machine. And to my surprise, I saw that Temp folder under C:>windows is eating 70-80% of the space. This directory has lot of log files, msi files etc.
When I've deleted a few files, I am able to get space in my C drive. Now I've a few questions on that:
1 - Any idea about any known malware, which creates files in C:/Windows/Temp just to eat the space and how I can cure my machine wrt that malware
2 - Are there any chances that any of my program/process is corrupt and creating log files in that folder and eating up the space unknowingly. If yes, any idea how to find 'That' corrupt program/process
