I use Windows XP, and my computer is about 2 years old. I know pretty much nothing about computers, so I don't know if that is relavant, but I thought it might be.
I recently got an icon on my screen that said that I have little disk space remaining on my c drive. I removed several programs from my computer, and the message has since gone away.
However, I noticed that there are several programs on my computer that I cannot remove. I have gone to Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel. When I try to remove the program, a message pops up saying that my computer "could not open INSTALL:LOG file" or "NSIS error: The installer you are trying to use is corrupted or incomplete. This could be the result of a damaged disk, a failed download, or a virus. You may want to contact the author of this installer to try to obtain a new copy. It may be possible to skip this step using the /NCRC command line switch (not recommended)."
These are programs I downloaded off the internet a few months ago. They never worked, and I am aware that I download bad software, but I would greatly appreciate it if you could give me any tips. I attempted to find the programs by looking in My Computer > C Drive. I could not find any of the problematic programs, and I am now stumped as to how to proceed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Also, is there any way that I could find out how much space I have left on my computer?
