Thanks for the response.
I once lived in Cleveland (was born there), and I know how finicky the weather can be at this time of the year.
I don't think that there is a ghost image of ME on that 5GB partition (D partition). I can view the contents and it looks to be 'system' files...WINNT, Prog Files, Linksys Drivers, etc...some Compaq drivers, etc....Now just filled and only about 10MB remaining.
There is also some of the same type of files on the C partition. However, there is 19GB remaining.
Is there a way I can change the default installation drive (which is now D) to C. I have tried to install IE6SP2, Office 2000, AVG, Norton System Works, and some other packages, but they all try to install on D, where there is no room, and I don't have the option to change it. When I installed the PCI Wireless Adapter, it installed on D, but there was enough room then, so I have internet connection, but little else.
If I reformat the entire drive and remove the partitions, will I have difficulty with the Compaq 'configuration'? I know Compaq has done funny things is the past and I hope I am not now the victims of one of those 'engineering masterpieces'.
