    I am running windows 8.1, the disk cleanup window for c keeps popping up, if i move the mouse towards it, it disappear. Is there something nasty on my machine causing this?

    I have scanned with malwarebytes and cc cleaner but they find nothing.

    Any ideas?

    Are any of your drives running low on space?
