I suggest that you get a USB external Hard drive and move all your data files over to it. They are getting very inexpensive, and this, along with un-installing unused programs will free up tons of space. Also, since the only stuff on my local drive is Windows and my applications, a problem with Windows does not
put my data at risk--it's all on the external!
If you do not have CCleaner or ATF Cleaner, get them and run them regularly. Take a little time to learn up on CCleaner before you run it the first time, you may end up removing some stuff you later decide you want.http://www.ccleaner.com/http://www.atribune....tent/view/19/2/
Open the Control Panel and select Folder Options.
Under the "View" tab find and mark the entries for : "Do not show hidden files and folders," and "Hide protected system operating files." That way as you search and move and delete, you won't be messing with anything important to Windows.
Good luck, and please post back with your progress.
