You need an unzip utility to unzip the compressed file. Autoruns is not self-exttracting, if I remember correctly. You can find some recommendations here:

A little more user-friendly is Codestuff Starter:

Hard drive size is never what they say it is and you probably have a hidden partition with the OS image on it for recovery purposes.

You might have to tweak your pagefile size:

FWIW - You can view the partitions on your hard drive by going to Start and typing in "diskmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and pressing Enter.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
