Run DiskCleanUp, for instructions on using DiskCleanUp refer the following M$-KB article:

You should also download SpaceMonger, it show you a map of each partition on your HDD.
If you any problems or qustions on what to delete; attach a SpaceMonger screenshot with the drive on which you want to free space.

If you have large files like pictures and also MP3s you could burn them on to CDs and free up space. Also system restore takes up space. If you have stuff like Google Desktop search, it keeps indexing your files and that information can grow up to around 1gb. CCleaner is also a good utility, dont forget to defragment after you delete large files to prevent the drive from being fragmented and slowing down your system.

Check your "Add remove programs" also. Just a hunch but if you have alot of programs then that might mean you downloaded them. If thats the case then with most programs you download they install other programs that arent needed. (Search bars, weatherbug and other crap). Delete anything you dont need in there and I would also run the defragmenter if needed. Wich I would do anyway after deleting a bunch of stuff.
