Hi, this is my first post and I hope I ask for soup correctly!

I just upgraded from XP Media to Vista Home Premium. I also upgraded the Memory to 1G. Both installations went fine. The OS went in as an upgrade, not a clean copy.

When the system booted I saw a red "X" in the sys tray stating that I have exceeded my profile user space.

When I click on the red x it gives me an ongoing, non-stoppable list of file in a variety of places.

How can I fix this?

Thanks but that has all been done and the Microsoft site may help, but I'm not that advanced to figure that out.
