Default disappearing space?!?!

sponsored links

 
for some reason space on my hardrive is disappearing. If i look under "My computer" and check the amount of hdd space i have now...it will normally be smaller than the amount i had 10 minutes ago. Now here's the REALLY BIG TRICKY part....i'm not running any programs.....no file sharing no ftp manager no nothing....the space is disappearing on it's own. I was down to 2.47 gig before i started this thread and now i have 2.45 gig!!! I used control+alt+delete to close every program yet the space still disappears.

please help!
