    It's genuine. Exactly, something starts taking space the minute I turn on the PC and it decreases my capacity so much that even if I'm doing absolutely nothing on my computer I will have to reboot because theres only a few hundred Kb left.

    It's genuine. System restore point is disabled so it's taking no space.

    Exactly, something begins to fill my space as soon as I turn on the computer. Even if I'm doing absolutely nothing on my computer (I've left it on) it takes up all the space and leaves just 600 kb or less. So I have to reboot it after a couple of hours.

    It's been 3 hours and a half and eScan Av still hasn't finished scanning a 32 Gb drive. I don't think this is normal. Also, my space has shrunk to 28 mb and I think that's whats keeping eScan from working.

    System restore is running as a task and failing due to lack of space

    Error: (09/15/2016 05:22:53 PM) (Source: System Restore) (User: )
    Description: Failed to create restore point (Process = C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs; Description = Windows Update; Error = 0x8004231f).

    Description: The scheduled restore point could not be created. Additional information: (0x80070070)

    You have 2 cracks running to get around activation of office or windows there is no other reason to have these running

    KMSpico (HKLM\...\{8B29D47F-92E2-4C20-9EE0-F710991F5D7C}_is1) (Version: - )
    Service_KMS.exe 2352 Services 0 18,244 K

    Everything could be filling its index on the disk
    Everything REG_SZ "C:\Program Files\Everything\Everything.exe" -startup

    Avast is running a backup every day as a task that can do it remove

    backup => C:\Program Files\Common Files\AV\avast! Antivirus\backup.exe [2016-07-10] (AVAST Software)

    Torrent can take up a lot of room
    qBittorrent 3.3.5 (HKLM\...\qBittorrent) (Version: 3.3.5 - The qBittorrent project)

    "...Everything could be filling its index on the disk; Everything REG_SZ "C:\Program Files\Everything\Everything.exe" -startup.." This has got to go! Everything, like Windows Index, creates massive directories. Get rid of this, delete all the created directories [unless uninstall does it for you]. Download, install, use FileSeek free or pro version.

    "...Avast is running a backup every day as a task that can do it remove; backup => C:\Program Files\Common Files\AV\avast! Antivirus\backup.exe [2016-07-10] (AVAST Software)..." What kind of backup routine is Avast using?What kind of backup files are being created? Where are the backups being stored? A question: pretend Windows is completely broken - no load/no startup; how do you access the Avast-created backup files and restore?
    [I amended my comments.]
