-uninstall programs that you don't use
-delete files that you don't need
-archive some of the files that you don't use all the time
-back up some of your files on CD if you have a CD-RW and delete them
-move some of them to another partition
-if you have windows XP you can delete the old restore points... they can get quite big and occupy a few GB if you had the system installed for a long time ...

Thank you for your reply. How do I remove old retore points from the system?
Hi check out this link for system restore stuff
Also after you delete stuff to free up space, make sure you defragment your HDD in safe mode. Else the drive may get fragmented and slow down the system.

start->all programs->accesories->system tools->system restore->turn off system restore ...

You may also consider running a cleanup utility to remove temporary files...you can download Cleanup Here.
