Computer indicates C-Drive is full, preventing the viewing of video. Have not been able to clear video file. There has been some mention of a virus causing such problems.

Sounds like you need to run a computer maintenance program? Clear out temp files and such? Or delete some saved programs to free up space on your hard-drive or expand your hard-drive?

Thank you for info. Have deleted programs and files, and have used maintenance program. Running better now. Still have much hard drive space occupied, by old videos?

Pictures and videos take up a lot of storage space (bits bites megabytes) you might want to look into an external storage for new or old recordings - transfer stuff over to free up space.

Again, thank you.

Not a problem.

I am no expert - but I think you can get some good sized external storage pretty cheap using thumb drives. Just plug em in when you want to access what you stored.

Remove all of the cached data - they can be rebuilt over time. Use image compression algorithms. If all else failed, restore to factory reset setting after saving all desired information. The N.S.A. can infect BIOS so if you have an auto-immune problem in your computer, a hardware replacement for the PROM chip may be needed. If you truly need more hard-disc space, a disc upgrade is warranted but it is expensive. Saving data and programs to CDs/DVDs/cloud storage is often cheaper.

Use msconfig to mount programs one by one or bunch by bunch on startup to determine which one/ones caused the problem. Before doing this, make sure that all internet connections wired or wireless to the outside world have been disconnected.
