I also need this!

Download Tree Size Free from my signature.

Install and run the program.
The first scan should scan the C drive. If it does not, then at the top click on scan
Select the C drive option.
The program will scan the entire drive and populate to show what is in every folder on the drive.

Take a screen shot and attach it to your next reply

I ran that, re-booted it is still very slow. I alsow ran the CHDSK yesterday, a note showed up, "Widnows replaced bad clusters in File 38435 of name\pagefile.sys.
To date I've went to the control panel, remove programs and removed programs that I am not using, it revoes it from that sector, but does not free up space.
I've downloaded different disk space programs recommended to clean up my disk, to no avail.
I've ran the Malware program, nothing.


Sounds like chkdsk /r needs to be rerun. Keep rerunning it till it doesn't find or fix any problems.

Run the treesize program as 123Runner asks and with the results window open do the following.
To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop

Run Tree size again and look at the "program Files". You either have a lot of programs installed and/or you have a lot of data in that folder.
Its size is 53gb.
The windows folder looks about right.
You have 2.4gb in documents and settings.

Again, you need to take a look at what you have in the Program Files folder.

You can not uninstall programs thru Tree size. It is just a program to show you what/where the space is being taken up.
You are going to have to look at that folder and see what is in there.
I suspect that some data like pictures or music is got saved to that folder.

You could expand that tree out in the program and give us another screen shot and maybe we can see something.

123Runner what is that Files folder at 191.1mb?
It doesn't even look like a genuine folder at all?
Also I suggest the Java should probably be cleaned out using JavaRa
Symantec can be exchanged for Avast or Avira. A lot smaller footprint.
