    Cannot install Apps on C: Drive


    Hello, Windows Eight Forum.
    I have encountered a problem while downloading an installation or any file on C Drive.
    When I finished downloading a file and a message pop-up and it said

    Not enough storage is available to complete this operation.
    - I also did Disk Clean-up, but there is no effect.

    My computer specs are
    Window 8.1
    32 GB RAMS
    C: Drive 103 GB and 36.2 GB free
    D: Drive 2.72 GB 2.20 TB Free.
    Intel CORE 1.7

    I searched on the website and none of my problems are the same.

    What Program was this, I get this kind of message when a program is not compatible with 8. For example a I have a Windows Media Player remote app in my phone, but the server for the remote can't be installed to 8, where I had it in 7 before. Installer gives that exact message. It's not you, it's the installer. Also always download programs from their maker's sites, not from links that are at the very top in Google, which are actually ads. I downloaded a virus that was planted in Classic Shell that way.

    Also, 32 gigs is plenty, but some few programs require a huge amount of free space - I can't think of any that need more than 32 gigs though.

    Oh yes, if this popped up during downloading, check the download for viruses.

    I mean apps for application with .exe, the program files is from freemake.com. It happens to any files whenever I tried to download and store it on the C drive.

    Freemake, heh? I'll test it for you. David's got a point, use Desktop IE or Chrome to download.

    OK the Freemake Video Converter goes right in, but there are extra Malware Apps that install with it, ya gotta hit "Custom Install" a few times to avoid installing this cack.

    If you installed somethign from Freemake and did not do a custom install leaving out the malware, you ARE infected, thats guaranteed- SO I would do a full antivirus scan and a full Malwarebytes scan, I would not be surprised to see "Babylon" was installed.
