Then delete all your existing 'Restore Points' by temporarily disabling it from Control Panel:
Control Panel (classic view)->System-System Restore (tab).
Tick the box against "Turn off system restore" and click "Apply"
When the pointer re-appears, untick same box and click 'OK'
Run defrag again.
Incidentally, Irish Eyes, 'memory' is what your PC uses to run Windows and applications until you shut down.
'hard disk space' is where you store or install Windows and those applications, and that's what you are referring to.
Many people confuse the two -- not helped by the fact that the so-called 'flash memory' is used for storing photographs
and MP3 tracks.
But in PC terms memory and hard disk space serve distinctly different purposes.

Memory is different than storage.
10GB is not a lot of storage space. Music files will take that up in a flash.
Sounds like you have a lot of temporary file (a lot of waste) build up and just need to clean house.

Troy, I am trying the CCleaner now and will post again when it finishes.

It freed up 699.7 mb and took my free space from 12% to 21%. I guess that means it works pretty well. How often should I run the cleaner, or is it a one time thing?
Thanks again for all your help.
