it will clean crap off your computer
next you can gain space by adjusting system restore
press Windows Key and Pause/Break Key
system properties will open
click system restore tab
there should be no check in system restore check box(turn off system restore)
move slide back to 3%
next defragment your harddrive
start/run/ dfrg.msc //click ok
click on defragment
if your not needing any programs in add/remove you can uninstall them with windows clean up utility... download it from here
click on the program you want to remove
that should gain you more space

The only change I'd suggest is to use the normal Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel to uninstall any programs you don't need. Save the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility for programs that won't uninstall any other way.
Also, to see what is using space on your hard drive, install a program called SequoiaView. Gives you a great visual picture of what is using up drive space. Get it here: http://www.win.tue.nl/sequoiaview/
Before running SequoiaView, you should make all files and extensions visible. Do this by:
Control Panel / Folder Options / View Tab.
Select Show hidden files and folders.
Uncheck Hide extensions for known file types.
