    something taking up disk space

    I use Windows 10. Basically, all I and my sister do is access the web and get emails. With only that activity, something is eating lots of disk space. Gigabytes, which simply cannot be the result of new email and browser cache. I realize Microsoft sends their updates regularly, but I don't think those would be enough, either. I've scanned with Norton, Malwarebytes, and another antivirus, found nothing. Any ideas what's going on would be appreciated.

    Thank you.
    Alan

    Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

    How large is the HDD and how much is currently being used?

    It is small-97 GB. I deleted some things, so I now have 17 GB free. My friend suggested that Windows updates might be what takes up disk space.

    Try using ccleaner for temp files and internet cache.

    I second that motion. I like Ccleaner so much that I have the paid version.
