My computer is running slow and I discoved that my 74g hard drive only had 1.5g of free space available. I made available 10g on the hard drive and the computer was running ok. The next day wthout adding any programs or data, the hard drive now shows just 1.8g of available free space. This has happened twice.

I have run my spyware and virus software without any problems showings. I tried to run my smartfrag software as a 10% hard drvie factor shows but it will not run as it says it does not have enough space.

Please help!

See how many Restore Points you have. You might want to delete some
If possible you can also download WinDirStat:
It will show you what is taking up all of the space

Try this too

Please download TFC by Old Timer and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link

Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.[/list]
