I would like to say hi!

Viruses and other malware can sometimes cause high storage usage.
The computer is likely running low on storage and it is infected in this case.
You can use Microsoft Defender to remove the virus, improve performance and reclaim some space.

Here is how to do it.

  1. Open Start.
  2. Search Windows Security, and click on the top result.
  3. Click Virus and threat protection.
  4. Click the Scan option under Current threats.
  5. Select Full scan.
  6. Click Scan now.
