I am trying to install a program (nero) onto my computer.
Its a 400mb self extracting file and I had 1.2 gig free on my hard drive.
I got 70% of the way through the extraction before my computer said it had
run out of free space and terminated the installation.

My problem is it didn't free up the space once it terminated.
In my computer it says C drive only has 10mb.
I tried CCleaner to free up space to no avail.
I rebooted the computer and still only 10mb free.

How can I find where the 70% of the self extraction file is stored so I can delete it?
Its stolen over 1 gig of space i desperately need!!

Thanks a lot!

Try looking here:

C:\Documents and Settings\**USER**\Local Settings\Temp

Where **USER** is your user name.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
