Re: [Full-disclosure] Is this a Virus?



use filemon.exe from www.sysinternals.com to see disk io. This will tell you what is writing and where.
To make it easier, shutdown as many programs as possible including av while you watch.


I doubt it's a virus. Filling up a hard-disk is counter productive to propagation. Though I do think it was an option in the VCL of old.

Subject: [Full-disclosure] Is this a Virus?



List,

When I reboot my computer I have 2 GB space. After about 4 hours of plain web browsing, I get a low space message. The space left is 1 MB.
Something keeps on filling up my hard drive when my machine is on. How do I figure out what? Anyone heard of this


Help appreciated
