To get more space, you do need to delete files in the Recycle bin. Also, right click on My Computer, select Properties, then select the System Restore tab. Move the System Restore slider down to about 10% or even less. This will eliminate files in th System Volume Information folder giving you more space.
You may also want to check Page file. Could be set rather high. There's an equation for setting the size of the page file according to the amount of Ram on your system. I have 1GB Ram and have my Page File custom set at 768 MB, both initial size and max size.
Empty the Windows Temp Folder.

Here's some good info. on slimming down Windows: http://www.bold-fort...p?showtopic=229
By using Fred Langa's method, I was able to reduce the size of my Windows Directory from over 3GB to less than 1GB without causing problems with my system.
You don't have to do all of Fred's recommendations, just ones you feel comfortable with.
