Welcome to Geeks to Go!
Try CCleaner to remove unnecessary files from your computer. Just be careful what you get rid of! The link is in my signature (I think).

Edit: It isn't in my link yet. See here.

You could uninstall any programs that you are not using, run a defrag, try to back up some of your data files (music files take up a lot of space!) to cd or dvd and then delete the files... How big is your hard drive and how much do you have on it?

Hi,
System restore points also take up space. Also if u hve Google Desktop search or something like that, indexing cud take up room.
Also herez a link on clean up

And yes, as johanna mentioned, dont forget a chkdsk and defrag, else deleting so much stuff might lead to fragmentation and system slowing down.
