You might also disable hibernation, http://www.opentutorial.com/Disable_hibern...n_in_windows_xp

If you are running System Restore...and you have not dumped your Recycle Bin...any combination of the three factors I listed could easily account for additional space used by the system.

ATF Cleaner is a good program as well. It will clean up your temporary internet files and browser cache.
