    Hi, I have been having a clogging c drive for a while,
    and I have yesterday removed 600 MB from it, and a day later
    and a new virus scanner it's still going down giving the windows
    warnings of low disk space. I assume something is wrong.
    I hope someone can help! :)

    Here is my HJT:

    Viruses don't always cause low disk space. Therefore, you should run the Disk Cleanup Wizard and Defragment files on your drive.

    For Disk Cleanup:

    Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup.

    Select C:

    Follow the instructions to clean up your disk.

    Also, go to My Computer and right click on "Local Disk (C:)". Click on the "Tools" tab and click "Defragment Now...". A window will pop up, right click on "(C:)" and click "Analyze". When it is done, click "View Report" and "Save As...". Save it as VolumeC.txt, go to My Documents, and open it up. Copy everything above the line and paste it here. It will look something like this:

    Volume (C:)
    Volume size = 17.60 GB
    Cluster size = 4 KB
    Used space = 13.41 GB
    Free space = 4.18 GB
    Percent free space = 23 %

    Volume fragmentation
    Total fragmentation = 16 %
    File fragmentation = 32 %
    Free space fragmentation = 1 %

    File fragmentation
    Total files = 57,994
    Average file size = 299 KB
    Total fragmented files = 1,178
    Total excess fragments = 7,470
    Average fragments per file = 1.12

    Pagefile fragmentation
    Pagefile size = 1.31 GB
    Total fragments = 17

    Folder fragmentation
    Total folders = 3,911
    Fragmented folders = 19
    Excess folder fragments = 107

    Master File Table (MFT) fragmentation
    Total MFT size = 92 MB
    MFT record count = 62,064
    Percent MFT in use = 66 %
    Total MFT fragments = 3

    After that, run Disk Defragmentor. It might take a while (last time I did my C drive, it took me an hour).
