Select the Advanced tab
Scroll down to the security section
Place a tick alongside "Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when closed "
Then every time you close IE all the pages will be deleted
Here is a link to newegg where they have a wide variety of fairly cheap hard drives. E.g 250Gb at $60.00.

Since Essexboy is the one who helped you I believe that there is no bloatware lurking somewhere eating disk space. You cleared enough space on your hard disk to enable free operation. Having done that, your computer should work well, which it does, except for disk space mysterious loss.
Please ignore the problem for a few days. Run the computer and judge it by performance only, disregarding changes, small or large, in disk space.
I have no explanation for the apparent problem and I am not sure there is one. It could be that windows reads disk space incorrectly and gives a false impression that something is wrong.
I fully agree that a 44 GB HD is a much less then optimal.
