go to www.piriform.com and download Ccleaner, it's only about 5mb and you can use it to clear up tons of unnecessary files.

Dear Deepz,

There are different things that you will have to do in order to free the space being used on your computer. This

will allow the problem to be fixed. Firstly there are many applications that you don't use, remove them from the

program list. Then carry on with the games that you might have installed and have finished up or don't play

anymore. Your Recycle Bin might be over loaded with deleted files that are not important to you. Please empty

the Recycle bin and have some more free space. A system restore also will be very crucial for the matter.

Please right click on My Computer and from Properties, select system restore. You will also be able to make a

system restore by getting to All Programs, Accessories, System Tools and selecting System Restore. This

step will require a restart. Also get to the Temp folder in Windows and delete all the files inside. You will also

have to delete the files in the Temp folder within the path c:\Documents and Settings\Username Set\ Local

Settings\Temp. This will be esssential to restart your PC afterwards. Your browser also contains many

unnecessary files, please clear history and private data. There must have been some offline pages that have

been saved, please delete them also. This should free enough space on your PC and hence solve the matter.

Thanks.

I delete the following:
Go start - find - files and (archives)

Delete the following (no problem) c drive:

- $
- tmp
- prefetch

They have all to do with memory store, I deleted them all and my computer goes on well
and I have 600MB more space.

I don't know why that first guy went on and on about getting rid of files when that would not free up that much space. There is a download called "partition magic", and there are others as well some free. It allows you to merge drives (NOT recommended) or better yet it will allow you to decrease your drive with alot of gigs and move it over to the C drive. Good luck!
