I've had my U400 for about a week and the D drive is full and my comp freezes occasionally and I think this is the problem. I know next to nothing about the inner workings of computers and I have not a clue as to how to fix this. The D drive is the smaller one of the two and I understand that this is for the system backup, but it shouldn't be this full and giving me alerts constantly. Did I set up the backup incorrectly or how do I remedy this issue?

i agree with the other poster that it is probably a malware infection.
The ESET online scanner i always recommend for a scan, is currently unavailable
you can scan with http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free
Please make sure to update first before running a scan,
if anything is found please go to the malware forum for assistance.
İf you have any more questions please feel free to ask here

It sounds like you might still have malware infecting your system (malware can be very persistant). MajorGeeks has an excellent step-by-step Malware Removal Guide that I would encourage you to take your computer through.
