"A copy of an older version of Windows is using significant hard disk space."

 

I am using a HP Pavilion dv6 and keep getting this message from the HP Support Assistant on start up, however when I follow the procedure to clean up the drive nothing actually improves and the message is still there next time I start the computer. So what is the best way to do a 'Clean' Install?

Thanks,

True Mercury. :bounce:
