The best ways to free up space
1. uninstalling programs that you no longer use with Add/Remove Programs
2. Running a cleaner such as CCleaner

For CCleaner, you can download it from http://www.snapfiles...t/ccleaner.html

After installing it, run it. Set it up like this:
  • In the area designated as "Cleaner Settings", Make sure the Windows tab is the selected tab.
  • Under the category of "Internet Explorer", UNcheck all boxes except for the first two boxes (Temporary Internet Files and Cookies)
  • UNcheck the box next to the category called "Windows Explorer".
  • Under the category of "System", UNcheck Empty Recycle Bin.
  • At the top, click on the tab that says Applications.
  • UNcheck EVERYTHING! If there is a category called "Firefox", then leave the Cookies option checked.
Now that it is set up, click on Analyze. When it is done analyzing (it could take several minutes since this is your first time using ccleaner), click on Run Cleaner.

Same thing, except under the Applications tab, check anything called cookies under the Netscape catagory, if it even exists.

In cleaner, all the files it will delete are junk files. Hence the name CCleaner (Crap Cleaner). It will not mess up your computer.

In tools, yes, don't mess with your programs there. You could end up removing them when you don't want to.
