I am running Vista and I have recently re formated my hard drive. After reinstalling everything needed, drivers, utilities, etc. I noticed Firefox would not work still. Which was one of the many reasons I wanted to re format. Because of this I was using Safari for awhile which seemed to do the trick in the interim. Anyway I caught a weird virus and decided I may as well give the formating another shot. Now when I put my CD in to get started and I click install now a message pops up and says I need about 500 MBs on any partition for temp. files. Apparently don't have that much space. Not sure what the hell to delete.

Try downloading and running CCleaner in the machine.
